Chef Roni of Results Kitchen Headed to Standing Rock

chef-roni-teepeeRoni Mathis of Results Kitchen in Hurst joined the HEB Chamber earlier this year, and recently announced that she will be taking time during the holidays to travel to Standing Rock, ND.  Roni is volunteering her services to help feed the people in this community. She will be sleeping in a tipi and learning to feed people in the “old way” of Native American cooking.

Roni plans to be gone through the first of the year; about 4 weeks or so (or longer if she is needed – Results Kitchen will be closed during this time).

Propane is the biggest need in this tent-kitchen right now. Roni asks that you consider donating a propane refill. It’s just $20 and will help fuel a burner for about 5 days. You can do so at www.paypal.me/ChefRoni

For more information about the Results Kitchen and Roni’s upcoming adventure, check her Facebook page.

Kevin Ball Named HEB Chamber’s October Member of the Month

Kevin Ball of KB Handyman and Home Services was recently named the October Chamber Member of the Month.

kevin-ball-october-member-of-the-monthThe honoree for October was an easy choice, because he worked so hard during the month on behalf of the Chamber’s community efforts.  He served as captain of the Chamber team that participated in 6 Stones Mission Network’s fall CPR event. He helped organize the team, and surveyed the house where the team would be working.  This was critical to be done in advance to determine what needed to be done.  Kevin also provided many of the tools used during the scope of the project.

It’s important to note, that he didn’t just supervise the operation, he was very much a hands-on leader.  Kevin worked hard both days, helping cut trees, clear debris and much more.  He’s a great handyman, and an outstanding Chamber member.  Thank you for your many efforts, Kevin!  The Chamber and its members appreciate you!

Support the Century Club!

The HEB Chamber’s “new” building is now 12 years old. Equally impressive, our mortgage is just $30,000.  We’d like to pay off that small amount now, before interest rates start rising.  That’s why we have created our Century Club.  We are seeking just 100 people, each of whom will contribute just $300 to help pay off the mortgage.  Each contributor will be recognized on a donor recognition plaque which will be displayed in the Chamber’s lobby.  This is a great chance to leave a legacy with the Chamber – won’t you be a part of our Century Club?  To learn more, please contact Mary Frazior.

Watch our invitation video below, and hear from some other Century Club Members:
