Labor Day at Port O’Connor Beach

What an awesome Summer, 2013! Your Chamber directors, members and even ones that are not in our local chamber deserve a huge pat on the back. This group went above and beyond to represent our great little town and help us achieve a dream that we had when we came aboard in the beginning of 2013.Our goal was to work towards making some changes at King Fisher Beach—with one of the goals being a new pavilion that could be used by everyone. We also wanted to host some events in a “beachy” setting.

The Chamber of Commerce was approached by Russell Cain Real Estate and POC Rentals with a Labor Day weekend idea: Russell and Brenda wanted to give something back to POC. Russell told us that he wanted to have Larry Joe Taylor on the beach in Port O’Connor. He said we could make a festival (in which the Chamber could make some money) or just have a music on the beach type event. The Chamber directors met and voted to make it a festival. It grew from there—however without everyone’s help, suggestions and ideas, it would not have been the huge successful event that it was!

Without the folks that sent in sponsorship money and the ones who donated equipment and their time, we would not have been able to do this event successfully.

We have tried very hard to compile a list of folks we want to THANK and hope we do not forget one person in any way.

Thanks for a Successful Labor Day Beach Bash!
