Read about The Chamber’s Night at the Oscars Celebration. What could be more appropriate than a vintage theater and a Heights historic landmark as the site for musical entertainment, a wine pull, live and silent auctions, our achievement awards presentations, new board member recognition and much more?
The annual Crawfish Festival in the Heights took place on March 4 at 411 West 20th Street. Despite an occasional visit from rain drops, everyone including mudbug eaters, volunteers, vendors, and performers enjoyed the activities. The spirit of the 13th annual Crawfish Festival was intact and it continued to provide fun, food, festivities, events, and much more. The festivities got underway with a terrific parade down 19th street. Scott McClelland, President of HEB was the parade Grand Marshall and rode in the famous “HEB 10 items or less” shopping cart.
On April 29, as part of its commitment to the community enrichment programs, the Chamber will put its emphasis on Fashion. Looking at it from another perspective, it will be educational in nature for young women. The first-ever career fashion show will feature professional attire and will take place at the University of St. Thomas Jones Hall from 10.00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The fee is $10 for adults and $5 for students. The information and clothing demonstrated at the show will help students look their very best for special occasions. For instance, being well-dressed for important occasions, such as job interviews, college interviews and meeting events may be critical to future success. Area high school female students are invited to participate in the show as models and will showcase a variety of apparel. The show will include attire in all clothing sizes.
