When officials with the Llano Chamber of Commerce found out they would be canceling all business and group networking events, the group decided to help a fellow merchant in another way.

On March 17, dozens of local residents spent much of the day helping Store Manager John Roberie of Lowe's Markets, 104 W. Young, restock his shelves due to the run on goods in the wake of the coronavirus scare.

The new executive director for the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce will start his new job today, bringing with him extensive experience in managing hundreds of volunteers for large events, officials said.

Jarrod Metzgar, his wife Heather and their two children had already lived in the Marble Falls community for more than a year and a half when he applied for and earned the job.

“We did have some other great candidates who were local, but not with his experience level,” said Chamber President Taylor Smith.

Metzgar previously worked for 10 years with Extraco Events Center, formerly the Heart 'O Texas Fair Complex, where he served as vice president.

“He's got experience managing large events. They had a large event every year,” Smith said. “He was responsible for managing 450 volunteers.”
