The annual Trunk or Treat held last week, as well as two future ribbon cuttings and other upcoming events were topics of discussion at this week’s monthly board meeting of the Lamesa Area Chamber of Commerce.
    Lamesa Nail has a new owner, Andy Hong, who has requested to join the Chamber. The board of directors voted to approve Lamesa Nail as a new member.
    Chamber President Sandra Adams said recruiting local businesses for the Chamber of Commerce is a part of the board member’s duties.
    “Karen (Mize) and I can’t get around and do it all, so thank ya’ll, those of you who also promote the Chamber, which I know ya’ll do,” Adams said.
    Another of the board’s duties is welcoming the businesses into Lamesa and the Chamber through ribbon cuttings.
    Resound Network’s ribbon cutting will take place at the Dal Paso Museum at 10 a.m. Thursday. The second ribbon cutting of the week will be held at Lamesa Nail’s location, 311 North Dallas Avenue, on Friday at 11 a.m.
    Adams said Chamber board members have been participating well in the past few ribbon cuttings and she thanked those who came to the events.
    “It makes a difference, and it makes them (the business owners) feel important that we showed up. It’s important that we do that. It’s a part of our function to get them started out right,” Lamesa Fire Chief Larry Duyck, who is Chairman of the Chamber Board this year, said.
