Chamber newcomers social is Thursday evening
Aug. 13, 2013 at 3:13 a.m.
For those still learning the lay of the land in the Crossroads, help is on its way.
The Victoria Chamber of Commerce's Newcomers Committee will host the second of its quarterly newcomers socials Thursday at The Club at Colony Creek, 301 Colony Creek Drive.
The event, which takes place from 5:30 to 7 p.m., is designed to help familiarize new residents with what there is to do in the area and to answer questions they might have, said Amy Mundy, who is chairwoman of committee.
Mundy said the evening includes hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar and giveaways such as tickets to the Texas Zoo, H-E-B care packets, gym packets and more.
The committee's first such event drew about 40 people, she said, 22 of whom were new to the area.
"We invite anybody who's relatively new to the community to come out and see what Victoria has to offer," Mundy said.
