While the days are getting shorter and the holidays getting closer, the Blanco Chamber of Commerce continues to look towards next year’s seasons without pause. They recently completed a day long retreat to review last year’s activities and begin the planning process for what 2011 might offer. The retreat was a great success with the Board focused and reenergized on moving forward on an agenda to promote, enhance, and develop business opportunities in Blanco.
The Chamber’s Inaugural Golf Tournament at the Vaaler Creek Golf Course was a rousing success last month. Inaugural is the key word here as planning is already underway for next year’s tournament. “We were delighted with the way the first tournament played out,” said Penny Thomas, Executive Director of the Blanco Chamber. “We had a great turn out, at an excellent facility, the weather was wonderful, and there was just good fun for all. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event.”
The annual banquet has already been set for January 27, 2011 and numerous other activities and events are in varying stages of development. While a lot of the Chamber’s activities are community based, the primary focus continues to be on providing enhanced services to the membership. The retreat provided an opportunity to discuss and prioritize ways to make the Chamber even more responsive to the needs of its members.
Chamber’s new website is a reflection of their efforts to raise an awareness of what the community has to offer. The site continues to evolve into an effective marketing platform for businesses in Blanco and the surrounding area. Blanco will be on display to a lot of visitors in Central Texas and beyond. “We’ve got a good thing going on in Blanco,” said Westcott, “And we’re proud to show other folks what a wonderful and unique place that we’re fortunate enough to enjoy here in the Texas Hill Country.”
