New Program for Wharton County Entrepreneurs

A new program being offered here, called Co-Starters, might help small businesses ring their cash registers louder.

An information session is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26. You can participate by remote access from your phone, tablet or computer. Wharton’s small businesses are invited.

This program will inspire entrepreneurs with new ideas and opportunities to expand their markets, including the changing demands of Covid-19.


You can RSVP on the Wharton Economic Development’s Facebook page. You can access through your phone at (872) 240-3311, Access Code: 813-993-997. The direct on-line link is gotomeet.me/execdirector8/costarters-information-session.

Call Josh Owens at WEDCO for more information at 979-532-0999.

Sponsors are the Wharton Economic Development Corp., City Development Corp. of El Campo, Kapeesh Marketing, El Campo Chamber of Commerce, and the Wharton Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture.


Other stuff:

The Wharton Chamber’s membership committee went to OakBend Medical Center’s Wharton Campus to lift the spirits of healthcare workers, having to dig even deeper to care for the growing number of Covid patients.

The presentation on Wednesday consisted of cookies, lemonade, custom-made lollipops, and a very, very large “thank you” card. Hats off to chamber membership chair, Debbie Folks, for organizing.


And, we are busy planning all of the chamber’s fall and winter events. If you would like to join as a volunteer, give us a call!
