HEB Chamber names LaWonda Peoples of Eventfully Yours as Member of the Month for May

At the most recent luncheon held by the HEB Chamber of Commerce, LaWonda Peoples of Eventfully Yours was named the Chamber Member of the Month for May, 2017.  LaWonda is relatively new to the Chamber, but even so, she has plunged right in. She’s been particularly helpful working on our upcoming EXPO, helping bring in several new exhibitors. She fully appreciates how important this event is for the Chamber, no doubt in part because she herself is an expert in events. So please join us in congratulating her as our honoree for May!

HEB Chamber names Linda Siegert and Donna Thomas of EECU as Members of the Month

During the recent luncheon held at the First United Methodist Church of Hurst, the HEB Chamber of Commerce announced their choices for the “April Members of the Month.”  The honorees were Linda Siegert and Donna Thomas of EECU.   They are a dynamic duo of ladies who have done much to support the Chamber in the past.

They were particularly helpful in April at our golf event, where they volunteered to work at our “Bubba Hole.” (In case you don’t know, the Bubba Hole is where golfers can, for an oh-so-reasonable fee, move up to a closer tee.)  Thank you to Linda and Donna for the great work they did in helping our golfers discover their “inner Bubba.”
