Chamber banquet sells out

by | May 12, 2016 | Life & Style

Farmersville Chamber of Commerce is getting ready to celebrate freedom with its patriotic themed banquet this Friday.

A packed crowd with a sold out event is expected to attend the annual banquet, awards and live auction will take place starting at 7 p.m. May 13 at the Bear Creek Ranch Event Center.

“We’ve already sold out the event so there will be no tickets available at the door,” Executive Director Lisa Eastman said. “Thanks to you all who graciously support the Farmersville Chamber of Commerce and that goes big time for all the businesses who financially sponsor all of our events—a special thank you. We have a sold out crowd again this year and for that are so grateful.”
