Hopkins County Chamber Connection – May 25

By Butch Burney

We invite graphic artists to submit a logo for April 8, 2024, Total Solar Eclipse that will occur that afternoon. The deadline for submissions is May 31.

Sulphur Springs is at the center point of the Path of Totality, which means we will have thousands of visitors that weekend. That means that Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County need to gear up for that event. People travel from literally all over the world to witness a total solar eclipse, and we need to make sure that our county is at the forefront.

We are prepared for visitors and commissioned a domain,, to let them know. However, to get the website done, we need a logo. So, we are opening up the Eclipse Logo Contest with the tagline “See You on the Centerline.”

If you are interested in participating, send your submission to me at We will use the official logo on the website and official merchandise.

See you on the Centerline!
