Kari Buzbee the outgoing chamber chair, had the goal of seeing an event center in the Hillsboro area.
There has been a buzz about finding a place where we can hold customer appreciation, banquets and other events for 300 to 500. The Ag Extension Building needs renovation specifically for special events, community functions, gun shows, etc. There is a need to raise $11,000 to rebuild the rest rooms and do minor remodeling in that area of the building. There are rumors that events will be held in the building as early as the first quarter of 2017.
More information will be in Chamber publications in the near future.
