The old saying goes, out with the old and in with the new. I believe that saying is only half true, because while there is much to learn from new, the foundation that the new is built upon comes from the old. I am discovering that each and everyday here.
Today I had the pleasure of attending the very first formation meeting for the Jarrell Chamber of Commerce. It was exciting to be a part of the very first event, and I expect great things from the chamber there. Being at the formation meeting had me thinking what would I do differently here if we were just starting???
Well, I am not sure that I would anything differently. Our chamber was built with a great foundation and while I have yet to meet any of the founders from that first meeting in 1947, I imagine that today they are very proud of what they created.
I feel blessed each and everyday to be able to live and work in this great community and I look forward to sharing the journey of the community, the growth of our businesses, and all of the new things yet to come...right here!
