The North Channel Chamber of Commerce sponsored a “Salute to Our Community & Country” event on Thursday, November 7th at Armenta’s Banquet Hall on Sheldon Road in Channelview.

This event was combined with a Rotary Club Salute, a health fair, and a Business Expo, and was well attended by hundreds of chamber members, businesses, and veterans. Rotarians from the North Shore and Galena Park clubs also attended, and held a brief meeting for their members.

The Veterans Salute included presentation of the colors, gifts from the Rotary Clubs, and verbal recognition and salute to those attending that had been in military service.

Health organizations that were present for screenings and information included Kindred Hospital, Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital, Dow Emergency Center, and East Houston Regional Medical Center.

About 40 businesses had booths with displays of their products and services. The event lasted for about 4 hours, and was well received.

SERVICE FLAGS were presented for each of the Armed Services by members of the Channelview ROTC.
