Oh!!!!! What a spectacular 2012 Fireworks Display! Port O’Connor wants to “Thank” everyone that made this event possible. It’s just fantastic seeing all the people that travel to our community to enjoy spending time with family and friends. Without you there would be no reason for the event. So start making your plans for July 6th, 2013 and we will meet again in POC. It’s just amazing, seems like just last week that we were waiting for school to be out and summer to begin. Now here we are with summer half gone. And what a summer it has been. Can’t remember when I’ve seen so much going on in POC. It’s certainly no “Secret” now and this is good for all the businesses and economy.
Anyone that would like to put their business cards or information at the Port O’Connor Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center located at 39 Denman Drive, in the back room of the POC MUD Office, please do so.We have maps, business cards, info and brochures for anyone to pick up. If you need more info, call 361-983-2898 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The more people we have involved with our Chamber, the more we will be able to accomplish in the community.

Memorial Day weekend 2012 turned out to be a fantastic time in Port O’Connor. The Chamber wants to let, Valerie Nelson know, it’s appreciated that she took on the task of the Annual Kids Fishing Tournament on such a short notice, also Rebecca Gregory, Mary Jo Walker and Jimmy and Barbara Crouch,that made the tournament possible. The Kite Contest had a great turn out also with a good breeze for the flying. We have been fortunate for the past 3 years to have James & Shirley Harper and Ronnie Ragusin do the kite event for us. The Chamber appreciates the work of all these volunteers!
