As the final quarter of the year draws near, the Waxahachie Chamber continues to serve its members in every capacity.

The Green Coat Ambassador Committee will be meeting this week to ensure they finish the year strong serving the new members of the Chamber of Commerce and helping to connect them with their benefits.

Last week, the chamber celebrated the opening of Vogue Salon and Spa Downtown Waxahachie with a ribbon cutting. The chamber will be celebrating two ribbon cuttings this week: one in honor of the 25th anniversary of Express Employment Professionals in Waxahachie and one in honor of Title Max joining the ranks of the chamber membership.

Both of these Ribbon Cuttings will take place back to back Friday, Sept. 25.

• Express Employment Professionals Waxahachie ribbon cutting – 1 p.m. Sept. 25 at 138 S U.S Highway 77, Waxahachie, TX 75165.

• Title Max ribbon cutting – 2 p.m. Sept. 25 at 140 N. U.S. Highway 77, Waxahachie, TX 75165.

The Waxahachie Chamber continues its weekly LIVE Interview Series with county and city leaders to discuss the current state being for Ellis County.

Last week’s interview featured city of Waxahachie parks and recreation department director, Gumaro Martinez, and assistant director, Brad Barnes.

Each interview in this series includes an exclusive deep discussion of the year, the challenges, the wins and a look ahead – featuring a county or city person in leadership.

The purpose of this series is to keep the Ellis County community and business leaders aware of everything developing locally during these times of change.

Tune in LIVE on Thursdays at 4 p.m. for the next few weeks to catch the final streams of this exclusive interview series on the Waxahachie Chamber Facebook page!

With the WX Leader Summit quickly approaching, the Waxahachie Chamber is working hand in hand with John Houston Custom Homes to put on the largest leadership development event of the year on Oct. 23 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. More details coming soon.

The Waxahachie Chamber continues to be a leader of the city, ensuring the best interests of business owners are preserved in Ellis County as a whole.

April Prentice, owner of DJ Wild Thang, speaks of her experience as a Waxahachie Chamber member:

When did you start your business in Ellis County?

“I took the plunge to officially open my mobile DJ business on Aug. 1, 2016. It was my husband’s idea because he thought I was great with the crowd. He said I appeared to enjoy what I do. Since then my business has grown to offer many different services.”

Why did you choose to open your business in Ellis County?

“I grew up on the borderline of Ellis and Dallas county. As the Dallas County side of the line got bigger, I’ve always stayed drawn to the small-town countryside of the line. And since I was residing in Red Oak and doing the majority of my consumerism in Waxahachie, there was no question about it.”

What is your favorite part about what you do?

“My favorite part of what I do is filling my cup with all the blessings I can dish out to others, whether through my services or connecting my clients with other amazing vendors, which in turn blesses those vendors with amazing clients. So, when I marry people in love, I marry them IN ‘love.’ ”

What do you love most about the Waxahachie Chamber?

“I love the Waxahachie Chamber for its striving for success in keeping our community connected within while keeping the small town feel alive during its growth. Personable, accepting, integrity and full of love.”
