Congratulations to Double Eagle Entertainment for being named October Business of the Month by the Bertram Chamber of Commerce!
Halloween on Vaughan Street will be Monday, October 31 from 5-7 pm
Any local business or individual can set up a table and pass out Halloween candy. Please set up before 5:00 p.m. The streets will be blocked off so that the Trick or Treaters can roam, play games, collect treats and show off their costumes. There will be a costume contest at 6:30. This event is free and will end when the candy runs out.
You won't want to miss the Bertram Country Christmas festival on December 3rd. Bring your family, enjoy the parade, the booths, the food, the music, and all the fun of a small-town Christmas festival.

Bertram Chamber of Commerce recently participated in the National Night Out held at Bertram Elementary School.
Keith McBurnett, Superintendent of BCISD, gave an update at the September monthly Chamber luncheon. He shared about the current trends in enrollment and strategic planning for the future. Superintendent McBurnett also shared that the school district had received a superior rating from the Texas Education Agency and a B rating on the state assessments. The 2021 Bond is helping with campus renovations including a new student activities center. The Superintendent went on to talk about some achievements the staff and students have made in the district and talked at length about what the BCISD is doing to keep the schools safe.
