The Bridge City Chamber of commerce was delighted to be a part of CASA of the Sabine Neches Region’s Grand Opening/Ribbon-Cutting celebration held May 9th at their newly refurbished office at 2120 Gloria Dr. in Orange. CASA temporarily used office space in the First National Bank building after being displaced due to flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. Executive Director, Michelle Jones, and her staff are glad to be “back home” in the beautifully remodeled facility.
