The Hawkins Area Chamber of Commerce supports a resolution to the sign controversy that allows for the community’s supporters to retain the ability to display the sign while not creating a public forum through its placement on public land. While this statement represents the Chamber’s official stance on this issue, it may not represent the personal beliefs of all of its members. The Chamber hopes for a speedy and peaceful resolution to the controversy.
Our next Chamber Meeting will be held Monday, July 6th, 2015 at the Hawkins Community Center at 5:30 pm. We hope that all members and guests will join us.
