Let’s Keep Going!

We can all do our part to support local restaurants and local businesses . Christmas is coming sooner than we think. So instead of shopping online and sending a rich man into space, think about spending your money locally where it will benefit our city and community.

If you are not sure what to buy then purchase a gift card from a local restaurant or from a local business and let them buy exactly what they want. You can also go to Duncan Switch this Saturday and purchase great gift items from small businesses there. While enjoying 72 degree weather you can enjoy some good BBQ and some Sho-Nuff good eggrolls.

P.S. Since I’ve been home resting from my accident, Janice and I are enjoying meals provided by friends at our local restaurants.

This week we will forego our Chamber article and ask that everyone sends their positive thoughts and prayers to Steve Martin, our Chamber President. He was involved in a car accident on Tuesday, October 5th while supporting a local Duncanville donut shop.

Steve is one of the strongest advocates for the Duncanville Chamber that I know and he has dedicated so much of his time to make sure the Chamber is and remains a thriving success.

Let’s all take a moment to wish him a speedy recovery! We look forward to having you back with us soon.

Conversations With

Your  Chamber 

Chairperson

As you may be aware, for the second year in a row, our annual Celebrate Duncanville Concert and Casino Night, scheduled for October, has been canceled. This is heartbreaking and a little frustrating, but we can all still participate this year.

We are still distributing our raffle tickets. You can purchase from any Chamber board member or from the Chamber office. We have wonderful local businesses that have graciously provided us with some amazing prizes this year. Let’s continue to support the Duncanville Chamber just like our local businesses have. I would like us to go above and beyond 2020 in raffle tickets sales to show that we are still strong and thriving. Together we can do anything!

Don’t Stop Now! Keep Supporting & Shopping Local Businesses!

Where are we headed? Covid numbers are going up, the mask debate and requirements are still in the news. While we may not agree on masks or vaccinations, we ALL can agree on one thing. Our local businesses and restaurants still need our support and our dollars. Some restaurant dining rooms have closed again either for Covid concerns or lack of workforce to maintain them and keep them open. We’ve made it this far so let’s push on to the finish!

Hopefully my surgery was a success yesterday and I’m recovering. But I will have to lay low for a few weeks so I need your help. Please support our local restaurants by either dining in or buying take out. Also spend money and buy a gift card for future purchases. The State Fair is opening and some restaurants and businesses drop off in sales so let’s make their sales soar during this time. Their future is more important than buying a Fletchers Corny Dog. The scriptures even spoke to this years ago. (see below)

Steve Martin
President/CEO

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

Why is it important to put your trust in God?

God knows everything we are going through at this very moment and everything we will go through in the future. He knows the best way to handle every situation so we get the best possible outcome and we need to trust him with that. We need to follow his path and trust that he knows best, because he does.

Next Thursday I will have surgery to replace my Aortic Valve. The reason that I’m sharing this with you is that I believe in the power of prayer. If you also agree, I would appreciate a simple prayer next Thursday morning. I hope that no one is offended by my asking for prayers. I trust my God and my Doctors and I’m comfortable in God’s will and plans for my life.

Steve Martin
President/CEO

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL NIGHT

Last night was a beautiful and touching tribute to the men and women who lost their lives on 9/11/2001. I want to say “Thank You” to all of the program participants for their additions to the program. I appreciate all of the people who either purchased tickets or reserved tables for the beautiful “911 Evening of Remembrance”.

As I have always said “I would never wish anything so horrific to happen to our Country again but I would love to capture that feeling of love that we shared to all of our people in America.” We united and came together as “One Nation Under God” to love, embrace and pray with and for each other. Thank You again to everyone and “May We Never Forget.”

Steve Martin
President/CEO

“When we work for a bigger purpose, We find an endless supply of happiness at work” – Jon Gordon

This could be a motto for our local businesses. As a small business owner, I decided to take on the challenge of becoming an entrepreneur because I wanted to make a difference and have my patients come to a place where they no longer “hated the dentist”.

We all have our “WHY” that lead us to start our own business. When times get hard, we need to remember that “bigger purpose” so that we can continue to have joy in what we do. Also we are in this together and need to support each other to keep our community strong.

As we move into this Labor Day weekend, congratulations to all our local businesses and let’s refocus on our “WHY”.
