    The Chamber is gearing up for our largest annual event, Discover Local, on November 2nd, 3pm-7pm at Hilton Garden Inn. This is a Community and Business Expo, a Taste of Southern Denton County, and Job Fair.
    As we anticipate over 1,000 in attendance this year, I want to ensure all our wonderful member businesses take advantage of this opportunity to showcase their unique offerings. We will have businesses like COBRA Brewing and Twisted Root Burger offering up delicious tastings.
    If you have not already signed up your business, I encourage you to stop waiting and reserve your booth now, as Chamber members receive an unbeatable rate.
