Chamber Members…here is your chance to be a part of the Spring Fever Bike Rally!

All Chamber members…if you would like to get your business in front of the hundreds of people that will be in town, Saturday, March 12th for the Springs Fever Bike Rally…there are lots of opportunities!  We give each rider a dri-fit t-shirt that you could have your business logo/name on.  We have 10 rest stops along the ride…may your business would like to host one!  So far…Muddy Jakes, Shannon Oaks and Juvenile Probation have agreed to host a rest stop…that means there are 7 more available!    We have lunch on the square hosted by Alliance Bank.  If your business would like to fix homemade desserts for the riders…they love those after a long ride!  Lastly, we always give the riders a FABULOUS SWAG bag (bag with cool goodies in it), such as lip balm, sunscreen, first aid kits, sweat bands, etc.  If you would like to put something in their bags, we will need approximately 250 by Wednesday, March 9th!  Needless to say, we would LOVE for you to be involved in welcoming the cyclists to Sulphur Springs!  If you want to help, please call Meredith at the Chamber at 903-885-6515.
