Tom’s Topics

By Tom Hawkins

The Groesbeck Chamber of Commerce banquet last Thursday night was one of the best ever. A huge crowd, a great guest speaker, delicious food, many deserving people recognized with special awards, a great silent auction and stretch ticket drawing were enjoyed by all present. The theme was “A Night in TV Land” with different businesses and groups decorating tables saluting various TV shows from bygone years. Hats off to one and all who worked so hard to make this year’s banquet such a success!
