One of the city’s newest businesses, I Scream,  hosted the Lavaca Chamber of Commerce meeting on Monday evening. Guest speaker Ed Wilkinson, President of Farmers Bank, spoke briefly on the development and growth of businesses within the city.

He encouraged the chamber members to become involved with the City’s Planning Committee and to formulate goals that incorporate a vision for the future. “To be successful you have to be willing to change,” stated Wilkinson.

According to Chamber President Jack James, the lack of store fronts and real estate are problematic. However, he noted that “businesses do want to come to Lavaca.”

Wilkinson further advised members to tap into resources and individuals who can help them apply for grants. “Throw the darts and see what sticks.” Adding that, the city should encourage small businesses as “they make the city great.”
