Sponsorship Opportunities:

Chamber Connection LOGO

The Chamber Connection is a full day networking experience. We gather at 3 different businesses for breakfast, lunch, and happy hour the third Thursday of each month. The purpose of the Chamber Connection is to provide multiple opportunities of networking and promotion for our member businesses. The Chamber Connection events are completely free to members and non-members. Time to speak about your business and ask or give referrals in an effective and formatted way. Bring plenty of business cards to exchange with others!

Hosts provide food/refreshments at their facility or pair with another business member to provide for everyone. Prizes are given away at every stop, with a grand prize for one who comes to all 3 stops!

If you would like to host Chamber Connection in the future, contact the Chamber at 903.729.6066

Christmas at the Chamber!  The 1st Saturday of December is always an exciting day.  Santa's Workshop happens at Rotary Park in the afternoon, the Annual Holiday Home Tour runs from 4 - 7 PM (tickets available through this site), and Christmas Parade run from 7 - 8:30 pm through Historic Downtown Palestine.

Then it's time for a Holiday Movie in Rotary Park.  PJs welcome!  Attendees can come early to enjoy hot cocoa and sit back and enjoy the movie.

Sponsor the Hot Cocoa, the logo'd blankets for the first 100 to sit on at the park, the popcorn, or the movie itself.
