I would encourage everyone to wait a bit on addressing the hail or wind damage if they can as the storm season continues. I would ask that as you are deciding and recommending businesses to fix your roof, cars, fencing etc., you provide an opportunity for the invested members of the Lewisville Area Chamber to address the products and services you require. After all, our members are not seeking a handout. They seek an opportunity to take care of you, your family and your business.Be sure to stay in touch with all things Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and subscribing to our YouTube channel.
