GUN BARREL CITY– The Cedar Creek Lake Area Chamber of Commerce held its first meeting of the year Jan. 10, which was sponsored by Northland Communications and hosted by new chamber board chairman Marty Mullins.
“We’ve invested millions in our products and services,” Northland Communications general manager Jim Burgess said.
Marketing coordinator Kelsey Teel gave away a Roku box to a chamber member.
“This is like having an app store for your television. You have unlimited choices of watching what you want to when you want,” Teel explained of the Roku box. “We invite you to come by our showroom in Gun Barrel City and check it out on our televisions.”
Chamber ambassador president Becky Hepker named Vetoni’s Italian Restaurant as the January Business of the Month.
“We thank Vetoni’s and Mike for all that they do for us,” Hepker said.
Vetoni’s restaurant owner Mike Lowther accepted the award and announced chamber members and guests would receive a coupon for a free pizza.
Floors 4 U owner Abdul Abdin suggested the January program for the chamber members.
“I had both of my dogs trained with the Mirror Method,” Abdin said
Circle Star Pet Resort owner Vicki Cooper Springer brought Mirror Method co-founder Nora Vamosi-Nagy from Hungary to teach her dog training methods to clients.
“Mirror Method is an aggressive dog training technique and we have offered dog training now for two years,” Springer said.
Vamosi-Nagy explained that Mirror Method dog training is a reflection of the owner and every dog is different.
“A dog needs to be a good match with its owner,” Vamosi-Nagy said. “As a owner, you are responsible for your dog.”
The dog training consists of eight weeks of classes that focus on lifestyle, teaching and being a leader.
In other business, chamber members heard:
• the Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament is set for Saturday, Feb. 2 and
• the chamber’s legislative trip will be Tuesday, Feb.5.
