Join the festivities on Jan. 25, 2018 as the Greater Hewitt Chamber celebrates its 40th anniversary at the annual banquet presented by Cen-Tex Roof Systems, featuring former Baylor running back and retired NFL player, Walter Abercrobmie, as our keynote speaker for January 25, 2018.

The banquet concludes with a drawing for luxury raffle prizes.  This event is open to the public. Event tickets: $60 each for members | $75 for non-members | Table of 8 for $470
