Motown, zoot suits, and ninjas...what an event!

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Where else can you find a Chamber of Commerce event with Motown, zoot suits, and ninjas? The Tyler Chamber of Commerce kicked off the chamber's famous, or infamous, membership drive. Ten local business leaders recruited at least five team captains to help generate new members to the chamber.

"We have dozens of teams competing against each other to set a new two and a half day record," said Tom Mullins, President of the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce. "We currently hold a record of 464 new members over the two and a half day event."

This year, members were even shown a performance by their leaders, who were decked out like Diana Ross and The Supremes. If the teams meet their goals on this new drive, leaders have already vowed to put on the makeup and spikes to perform as kiss.
