Chamber Connection & COVID-19 Updates


Great news!!!  It’s time to register to play golf in the 32nd Annual Hopkins County Golf Tournament!  We are mailing registration forms to our members this week.  If you are interested in playing, call the Chamber at (903) 885-6515 to reserve your spot.  We will have morning and afternoon tee times available, but they go fast!  The tourney is set for Friday, April 9th.  It’s going to be a great day!!

One thing I’d like to mention… County Judge Robert Newsom was explaining to me that Hopkins County has not yet been added to the Disaster Declaration from the snowstorm because we haven’t reported the damage to the state’s system.  Texans are urged to fill out the TDEM’s State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT) to help the state identify damages across Texas and help emergency management officials gain an understanding of damages that occurred during the recent winter weather. FEMA has asked the state of Texas for additional information regarding the amount of damage in the counties that have yet to be declared, and TDEM will continue to present that information until all Texas counties that qualify for federal assistance receive the assistance they need.  If this applies to you, please do your part, and submit a quick survey.
