The Canyon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce hosts a farewell event Thursday for winter Texans preparing to head back north.
The party is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon at the Community Resource & Recreation Center of Canyon Lake’s (CRRC) Mabel Jones Rec Center, 125 Mabel Jones Rd., Canyon Lake.
“Thank you, winter Texans for choosing Canyon Lake as your home away from home,” said CLACC Executive Director Kim Collora.
She said she encourages winter Texans to stay in Canyon Lake for two to three months.
“I’ve had a couple that have even bought houses,” Collora said.
She speculates that around 1,000 visitors from the north relocate to Canyon Lake during the winter months. Many stop by the Chamber to see what’s new and invite Collora to visit them up north when she retires.
