Keene ISD Supt. Ricky Stephens will speak at the monthly luncheon of the Keene Chamber of Commerce at noon Thursday, Sept. 26, at BB's Venue, 3125 CR 815 B.

Check-in begins at 11:15 a.m. and the meal service line opens at 11:45 a.m.

The meal will be catered by Massey's BBQ. The cost is $15 per person for those who RSVP by noon Tuesday, Sept. 24. Admission at the door is $18.

This is the 5th consecutive year the September luncheon has been held at BB's Venue, a beautiful indoor-outdoor wedding facility located at the north end of Keene. BB stands for Beautiful Beginnings.

Stephens will discuss the latest developments in the state's third smallest school district, including national attention focused on the district after selected faculty were legally certified to carry weapons and the new school lunch program.

Stephens, a former Keene Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year, will probably also discuss his golf game, since he is the two-time defending Keene City Golf Tournament champion.

Eva was an ever-present presence in the Keene chamber office, always pleasant and professional.
