Brady/ McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce



Welcome to a new year, everyone! 2012 is now in the record books and we are ushering 2013 in with lots of planning, reflection, and great ideas.

Here at the Chamber we have dubbed this the "Year of Face to Face". Every week, staff will be out and about in the community to find out how we can better meet your needs, wants, and business goals. They might even have some special goodies with them! We truly look forward to some one on one time with you!

Planning is already under way for several events this year. The Annual Banquet is next week. Tickets are still available. The 22nd Annual Denise Nichols Memorial Duffers Golf Tournament will be held in early May. July Jubilee events are going to be held on the first weekend in July with a street dance, parade, volleyball and fireworks. The 40th Annual Goat Cook-off is August 30th and 31st. Christmas in the Heart will be held on the first Friday in December.

There will also be more Good News Luncheons throughout the year in April, July, and October. We strongly encourage you to attend to keep up with all the great things happening in Brady and McCulloch County!

The Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center are looking forward to bringing several classes to town this year, so be on the lookout for those.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your support throughout 2012. We look forward to a fantastic 2013 with you!
