Trinity Trojan Football Solicits Coupons from Local Businesses for 2014-2015 Calendar

Trinity Trojan LogoEach year the Trinity Trojan Football team sells a SCHOOL YEAR CALENDAR as a fundraiser for the program.  This is a twelve month, full color calendar with pictures/art work commemorating the previous season.  It also includes pictures of the current senior Trojans on their birthday to celebrate their membership on the team.  The calendar is developed by the coaches “in house” so we can maximize the amount of money going back to our football team.

Two pages of coupons are included in the calendar to increase its’ value, thus, increasing sells potential.  In the past we have concentrated on food and golf offers, but this year we branched out into several other areas, including a mother/daughter tea party!

The Trinity football team requests that you be a part of our 2014-2015 calendar by providing a coupon for your business. There is NO CHARGE to you. Our funds are raised through the sale of the calendars and we appreciate your willingness to add value to the project through your coupon donation.  We hope this also serves as advertisement for your business. 

If you would like to partner with the Trinity Football family, please contact me, Jay Fitch, at jayfitch@hebisd.edu.  You may also call 817-891-5224 to speak to me directly.  All coupons need to be received by July 1st, 2014.  Sale of the calendar will occur the first week of August.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Interested in Public Policy? Participate in the Governmental Affairs Committee

The Hurst Euless Bedford Chamber of Commerce has had an active Governmental Affairs Committee for many years.  This Committee researches issues that will affect businesses and the community.  Position statements on issues such as transportation, economic development and education are formed after careful consideration and input from our members. 

During the last Texas legislative session two organized trips were taken to Austin to let the voice of business be heard in Austin.  Additionally, Chamber Board and Governmental Affairs Committee members responded to specific legislation by contacting individual legislators by phone and email as the session progressed.

Two issues that have been in the HEB Chamber’s position statements for many years – funding for transportation and water – became proposed constitutional amendments.  While the water funding amendment was approved by the voters last year, the transportation funding amendment will be on the ballot this November.

The process of recommending positions on issues to the Chamber Board has just begun for the 2015 session.  Information from the interim House and Senate Committees are begin studied and input from businesses and the community are being sought.

Do you have a particular issue that affects your business that may come up in the next Texas legislative session?  Do you belong to an industry association that has an issue?  Send me an email and the HEB Chamber’s Governmental Affairs Committee will research it.  Please include your contact information so we can follow up with you.  I can be contacted at maryfrazior@heb.org or by phone at 817/283-1521.
