Exciting things are happening here at the Kenedy Chamber in the next few months! Starting with this week, the next 2nd Friday Community Breakfast will be hosted by the Karnes City Chamber of Commerce this Friday, August 14th at 7 a.m. Join the local Chambers, community members and city officials for updates regarding all of Karnes County. Following this community breakfast at 9 a.m. on August 14th will be a Topping Off Ceremony in honor of Otto Kaiser’s new hospital building. Come and celebrate as the community will be able to sign their names on the last beam of the building, signifying the end of the foundation stages. The Kenedy Chamber is also a sponsor of the local Back-to-School Backpack and School Supplies Drive, hosted by Karnes County Youth Rally and Almas Perdidas. This great event is taking place at Cotton Mill Restaurant on Saturday, August 22nd from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Make sure every child you know attends in order to receive a free backpack and school supplies, along with having a blast with an entertaining DJ, fun games and free food!
