Hopkins County Chamber Connection, February 28

By Butch Burney

Need glasses for the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse? Want a T-shirt and sticker? We know where you can get them. We have eclipse merchandise at the Chamber of Commerce, including T-shirts, stickers, and glasses. With tens of thousands of visitors targeting Hopkins County for Monday, April 8, don’t wait until the last minute.

The Chamber has an eclipse website,, where you can upload information about events, attractions, lodging, retail shops, and restaurants. That will be the information clearinghouse for what is happening in Hopkins County on April 8 and the weekend leading up to that day.

We will host a free concert on Saturday, April 6, downtown, featuring The Paper Dolls, Jason Waldon, the Alibis and Dubb, and the Luv Machines. The vendor’s market will be at The Venue at 219 that weekend. Check out the website, upload information, and get prepared!

Chamber Golf Tournament

For all the linksters, the Chamber’s Annual Golf Tournament, historically the first Friday in April, has been moved to the first Friday in May due to the eclipse traffic. We will post registration forms in the middle of next week.

The tournament is limited to 43 teams, 18 in the morning and 25 in the afternoon. The cost for a team of six is $750, which includes a morning or afternoon tee time, three carts, and six lunches. Please pick up a registration form at the Chamber or look for it to be posted on the Chamber website next week.

You don’t have to be a Chamber member to attend; there is no charge. Come and enjoy some cocktails and conversation.

Ribbon Cuttings

Haus of Sabo will have a ribbon-cutting at noon on Friday, March 8, at their new location at 206 Church St. Please join us for this event.
