Chamber Weekly Update – August 14, 2020

Keeping Dollars in Duncanville

Things seem to change weekly and daily about schools reopening, churches reopening, businesses reopening, etc.

There is one thing that has been constant and has never changed. Our local businesses and restaurants still need our help and support to survive. Please continue to support our Local Businesses and Restaurants when possible. They have remained open during these troubling times “For You”. Money that is spent with Amazon and other on-line ordering doesn’t put any Tax Dollars back into our City. Shop Local and keep your Tax Dollars in Duncanville! Do what makes YOU comfortable and to feel safe and please be cautious and smart. If you go out, be sure to wear your mask (it’s required), wash your hands often, use hand sanitizers and common sense. (Remember that masks are required in all of Dallas County businesses and restaurants.)

And as always Be Kind and Respect everyone’s choice and Stay Safe. “We are in the same waters but not the same boat.” We will get through this “together”!

We have many people to say “Thank You” to for supporting our 23rd Annual Golf Classic.

First we need to thank God for the beautiful cool (91* and Dry) weather and for the great rain on Tuesday.

Next we can’t say “Thank You” enough to Methodist Charlton Medical Center for being our Title Sponsor again this year.

Special thanks to all of our major sponsors, our hole sponsors, our golfers and our volunteers as well for a fantastic tournament. With everyone’s help and support we were able to exceed our budget and finally complete an event for 2020.

I personally want to say Thank You to everybody and I truly appreciate each and every one of you!

“Keeping Dollars in Duncanville”

There have been so many changes in things since the start of Covid-19. We have seen decisions being made and then changed during the Coronavirus outbreak.

But, the one thing that has been constant and has never changed is the fact that our local businesses and restaurants still need your support to survive.

I urge you to continue to support our local businesses and restaurants when possible. Amazon and other on-line ordering does not put tax dollars in Duncanville!

I encourage you to “Shop Local.” Do what makes YOU comfortable and to feel safe and just be cautious and smart. If you go out, be sure to wear your mask (it’s required), wash your hands often, use hand sanitizers and common sense. (Remember that masks are required in all of Dallas County businesses and restaurants.)

“Keeping Dollars in Duncanville”

The number of positive Covid-19 cases in Dallas County has finally started to drop. I am hearing people express their views on wearing masks, etc. Some people are still upset about having to wear a mask. We know that that the only common indicator of lower cases is by people wearing them. Whether you agree or disagree with this, please wear a mask. I urge you to continue to support our Local Businesses and Restaurants. Do what makes YOU comfortable and to feel safe and just be cautious and smart. If you go out, be sure to wear your mask (it’s required), wash your hands often, use hand sanitizers and common sense. Our restaurants and small businesses still need our support now more than ever and I encourage you to “Shop Local.” (Remember that masks are required in all of Dallas County businesses and restaurants.)

Duncanville Cancels July 4th Event and Fireworks Display

Duncanville, Texas – At their May 19th, 2020 regular meeting the Duncanville City Council made the decision to cancel this year’s July 4th event and fireworks display in the interests of public health and safety.

With nearby cities canceling their own Independence Day events, a Duncanville event was a potential attraction to people from outside the City at a time when all efforts are being taken to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

After a discussion about possible solutions that would allow the event to continue, Mayor Barry L. Gordon and the City Council agreed that, while disappointing, it was in the best interests of public health and safety to cancel the event.

“It was a painful decision for us as a council,” said Mayor Gordon of the cancellation. “We understand how enjoyable this community event is. It’s a hallmark event for the city. Regrettably, extraordinary times require extraordinary measures. We regret we can’t have fireworks this year.”

At the time of the meeting, Dallas County had identified the COVID-19 pandemic risk level as high, “Stay Home, Stay Safe.” At the state and federal levels, the government is still recommending the use of cloth face coverings, 6-foot social distancing, and limiting group sizes.

The Mayor closed the discussion saying, “We’ll do something bigger and better next year, hopefully.”

This 4th of July will be much different than what we are normally used to. Be creative on how to celebrate with your family and friends. If you go out, be sure to wear your mask, wash your hands often, use hand sanitizers and common sense. Be sure to continue to support our restaurants and small businesses as they need our support now more than ever. We encourage you to “Shop Local.” Remember that masks are required in all of Dallas County businesses and restaurants.
