This historic community, located in the heart of Texas, offers an ideal setting for homes, ranches and businesses with beautiful scenery, rolling green hills, tranquil lakes, historic Texas landmarks and country charm, yet the "big city" is less than an hour away. Chappell Hill is situated in the southeast portion of Washington County, which lies halfway between Houston and Austin on US Hwy. 290.
Thanks to your support, the Eastern portion of Washington County has benefited from the presence of a community paramedic (ACP) in Chappell Hill since February 2016. Just this past year, there were 534 response calls to this area, 187 of these calls were 911 responses. Thanks to your support, we have all seen the return on investment by having the presence of Washington County EMS in our community.
Thanks to the vision of previous leadership, the Chappell Hill Chamber of Commerce saw this as a community priority, and for the last two years, we have worked with our county officials and community leaders to provide those emergency medical services (EMS) that continue to benefit our friends and neighbors. As you may recall, as an incentive for the County to make this agreement, the Chappell Hill Chamber of Commerce agreed to fund part of the EMS operating expenses. The Chamber being a volunteer organization is totally dependent on the community donations for the funding of all of its operations. Our current Memorandum of Understanding with Washington County requires the Chamber to submit our annual portion of $11,500.00 during the month of May 2018, this is our share of the estimated $90,000 annual operating budget to house the ACP.
At this time, the Chamber is asking for your financial support to help maintain this valuable service to our community. Your monetary donation will be greatly appreciated to help us meet our obligation and we look forward to continue working together for our community. We will also be hosting a community update on May 1st at the Providence Baptist Church, 5:30PM to share with you the impact the ACP has had in the area.
Should you have any questions please feel free to call me at 713-899-5100. You can mail your donation in to P.O. Box 113, Chappell Hill, Texas 77426 or drop it off at the Chamber office, and thank you for your continued support.
