When we first moved to Seguin, I was rather surprised that the city had two Chambers of Commerce: the Seguin Chamber of Commerce and the Seguin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. However, after learning more about the city and how effective both Chambers are, it is not surprising at all.
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce recently honored Seguin Citizens who have made a positive impact with their contributions to the city. It is well to be reminded now and again of the hard-working, willing, people who make our city a better place in which to live. These folks are unassuming (never promoting themselves) who work within the community in so many areas.
