Changes in the 2017 Calendar of Events

It has come to our attention that we need to address our changes in the 2017 Calendar of Events. Namely, the lack of mention of Boomfest. It was decided in September of 2016, after months of discussion and event financial review, that Boomfest 2017 would be canceled. In an effort to (1) better utilize Chamber funds for events and (2) not over tax our membership by seeking additional sponsorship, the Board of Directors made the tough decision to remove Boomfest from the 2017 Event Calendar.

Weighed into that decision was the $1,000 a minute price tag, trash issues with the lake itself, low-paying attendance and the reality of seeking sponsorship in Frontier Days, Breckenridge Airshow and then Boomfest, all within a 90-day span. Along with that, we considered the mission statement of the Chamber of Commerce: The Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce is an organization of businesses and individuals that work to promote the area by developing a strong and vibrant economy through business advocacy and leadership, thus creating a better quality of life.

The decision was made prior to the Breckenridge Airshow’s success; however, the Breckenridge Airshow is helping Breckenridge, Texas gain nationwide notoriety. I challenge you to google Breckenridge Airshow and also to check out YouTube before being unkind to the 2017 Board of Directors; a Board of volunteers who give up their time and energy to try and bring commerce to our community.

The life blood of our future is dependent on bringing in new customers, commerce and, hopefully, residents. This decision was not made lightly and we appreciate your continued support of the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce.

Remembering Sloan Everett, 2017 Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce Board of Director

Our hearts go out to the entire Everett family. A memorial service will take place on Saturday, March 11th at First Baptist Church in Breckenridge at 2 pm. The family of Sloan Everett requests that any donations be made to the building fund of First Baptist Church in Breckenridge.

“Be encouraged by their passing and legacy. Instead of crying, live an inspired, spiritual and happy life like they did when they were here. Live each day with encouragement knowing that they are proud and smiling down on you from Heaven” ~ Matt Fraser

If you knew Sloan, you would know that is exactly what he would want you to do.

“There’s no shortage of people in Breckenridge whose lives have been impacted by Sloan Everett. He was a youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Breckenridge. He served on the Hospital Board and the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. He was also a local business owner. Although he’s gone, members of the community say that his memory will live on.”
