Chamber looks to fill new digs
Monday, August 27, 2018
The Gonzales Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is ready to break out of the old jail.
The homegrown business and tourism organization has about run out of room at its current location — the county-owned Old Jail — with boxes stacked high in its meeting room and an office where two desks are shoehorned into where only one should go. It may be a good place to get a brochure or book a tour and find out where the famous cannon resides, but to better serve chamber members, it is time to grow.
“As of right now, the Gonzales Chamber is very limited in the space that they currently occupy,” said Executive Director Daisy Scheske. “At this time, we can only have up to three employees because of space, can only host up to 13 comfortably in the board room, and maybe 7-9 people in the front office.”
If you've stopped by for a visit, you know that it is sometimes hard to turn around in there.
