The Galveston Service Center was recently selected as the 2009 Business of the Year by the Hitchcock Chamber of Commerce. The service center was chosen because of its restoration efforts after Hurricane Ike and employees' continuous follow-up work. Galveston Service Center employees were also recognized for their on-going volunteer work in the community, which includes participation in an annual cook-off, the Hitchcock Good Ole‟ Days Festival and the week-long Galveston County Fair and Rodeo. The award was presented at the 50th anniversary and salute to the Hitchcock Chamber of Commerce.
