Brady/ McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce



Christmas is right around the corner and we just want to remind you of a few things currently happening or approaching us quickly.

This week will be the last week to bring in receipts for the final $100 gift card. Bring your receipts from Chamber member businesses in by 12:00 p.m. this Friday for your chance to win.

If you haven't checked out the lights in the park, make time to do so! The city crews have worked hard (like always) to make sure Richards Park looks wonderful for all visitors.

The Chamber office will be closed December 24th - 26th, December 31st, and January 1st for the holidays. We hope you enjoy the time with your families and friends.

And last, but not least, the Chamber Banquet is coming up on January 31st. Tickets will be on sale soon and we certainly look forward to seeing you there!

The Chamber will again be holding drawings for four $100 Visa gift cards to individuals bringing in shopping receipts from Brady/ McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce Member businesses dated between Friday, November 23rd and Thursday, December 20th.

Receipts must be turned in by 12:00 p.m. this Friday to be included in this week's drawing.  Receipts will be added together. Every $100 spent at a Chamber Member business will earn one entry into that week's drawing, so $400 equals 4 entries.

Remaining deadline is:
  • December 21

Member of the Month: Heart of Texas Ford, Inc

When John Reavis took over Heart of Texas Ford in February 2007, it was a two man show. He and Kade Riley completed oil changes for customers and began building the business from one with a single new vehicle and a single used vehicle with no service or parts department into the successful enterprise that exists today.

HOT Ford now employs 17 people. Boasting a full service department with certified technicians, as well as a complete parts department, John states the business is still going strong and is ALWAYS proud to give back to this community.

Heart of Texas Ford is located at 110 S. Bridge St. in Brady. They are open Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., and can be contacted at (325)597-2124. Check out their website here. Heart of Texas Ford has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce since July 2007.
