Rocky Gribble & “The Woods” to Perform Christmas Show, Dec. 15 - Donations Accepted for GRACE! The Grapevine Chamber is proud to have legendary Grapevine musician Rocky Gribble & “The Woods” perform at the December Membership Luncheon, sponsored by Baylor Scott & White Medial Center - Grapevine and catered by il Calabrese. The luncheon will be Thursday, December 15, at 11:30 a.m., at the Grapevine Convention Center. Donations of food, clothing and toys will be collected on behalf of GRACE. Visit www. to find a list of food pantry needs! Also, officers from the Grapevine Police Department will be joining us at the luncheon as our way to thank them for their work

serving our community! The son of a West Texas cotton farmer, Rocky Gribble’s musical roots began when he first picked up his dad’s guitar at the age of thirteen. Before he turned fourteen, Rocky was making weekly television appearances on a country music show in Lubbock, Texas. His high school years in Post, Texas were dotted with awards recognizing his talents on the guitar. A Bachelor of Arts degree in music from Southern Nazarene University in 1974 would soon follow as Rocky embarked on a career in his first love. His abilities on the electric lead guitar, acoustic rhythm guitar, nylon string classical guitar, five string banjo and mandolin keep him

Reflecting on 2016

As 2016 winds down, it’s appropriate to reflect on this past year and give thanks for the many blessings we have received. To be associated with such a dynamic Chamber of Commerce and an equally dynamic business community is truly a blessing. Look no further than our recent Membership Event to see validation

of these blessings. Having not done such an event in nearly 20 years in Grapevine, no one was sure what kind of results to expect, but when it was all said and done, I can state unequivocally this membership drive exceeded all expectations! I am proud to say that nearly 250 business professionals from our community volunteered their time during this three-day drive, and

Gifts will be delivered to the senior clients of GRACE on Saturday, December 17 at 9:00 am. On behalf of the Women’s Division, I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and holiday season. The Women’s Division’s motto this year is, “Helping Our Community with Love & Hard Work It’s Worth It! I hope to see everyone at our next luncheon Tuesday, December 20, at 11:45 a.m. at the Courtyard/TownePlace in Grapevine. If you have questions about the Women’s Division of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce, please let me know.
