The Texarkana USA Regional Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their Annual Celebration of our community this Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 1:30 PM and it will be streamed live. The virtual event can be found on the Chamber’s YouTube and Facebook pages.

“The Chamber and the Texarkana community worked hard throughout 2020. We want to recognize the individuals and organizations that stayed positive and persevered,” said Mike Malone, president of the Chamber said in a press release.

Presentations will be made by the Chamber president, Economic Development Council, Greater Texarkana Young Professionals, the Chamber Ambassadors, the 2020 chairman of the Chamber Board, Joey Martin, and the 2021 chairman, Jennifer Harland. New to the program will be Large and Small Business of the Year Awards, and the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award. The Chamber will recognize retiring board members and pass the gavel to the new chairman of the board.

“The livestream will be produced much like a television show. We’ll have commercial breaks, and Heather Wright with KTAL will be our host,” explained Natalie Haywood, director of events and communications. Along with the livestream, there will be a virtual silent auction that begins on Monday, January 25 at noon. “We’ve got some great items in the silent auction this year thanks to our Ambassadors. You’ll see certificates for a video production, ice chests, a power washer, jewelry, a little bit of everything for everyone,” said Haywood.

You can watch the event through the Texarkana Chamber of Commerce Facebook page or the Texarkana Chamber YouTube page. The silent auction will begin January 25, 2021 at noon and end February 5, 2021 at 5:00 PM.
