TACC looks toward future events

Thorndale revue at the top of the chamber list
By DARLEEN TUCKER
TACC Secretary

The Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce met in a regular meeting on May 23 at the TACC building in downtown Thorndale.

The Thorndale Revue, where the new Miss Thorndale 2011 will be selected, was the main topic of discussion.

The Revue has been set for 7 p.m. Thursday, June 2, at the Thorndale ISD cafetorium. This will help the event better connect to the Thorndale Volunteer Firemen’s BBQ Cook Off slated for June 24-25.

The deadline for Rev ue entries is Friday, June 17. Categories are available for several age groups and entry forms can be picked up at downtown businesses.

Audrey Gamble and Brenda Hernandez are co- chairing the event. Stop by any of our local merchants for an entry form and while you are there see what they have to offer and save gas by shopping locally.

In addition, the TACC is still selling raffle tickets on their Boot Scootin’ Quilt.

The drawing for the quilt will be held at the 4 p.m. Saturday, June 25 awards ceremony at the TVFD Cook-off.

Stop by local merchants or contact any Chamber Director for tickets for the full-size quilt. The tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Call Darleen Tucker at 512-898- 2727 for more information.

Thanks go to Sarah Beard, Donna Johnston, and Rosalie Biar for their expert workmanship on the quilt.

The TACC would also like to remind Thorndale citizens that the TACC building at 120 South Main in Thorndale will be the site of a Community Communication Meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 21.

The meeting is hosted by Mayor Billy Simank, TISD Supt. Casey Callahan, Milam County Judge Dave Barkemeyer, Precinct 4 Commissioner Jeff Muegge and Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Gary Northcott.

Each will give a short update covering their area of responsibility and then the session will be open for questions and input.

Citizens from all over Milam County are invited, particularly those from the Thorndale area. Make plans to attend this informative meeting and hear first hand from your elected officials on issues of concern to the citizens of Milam County.

The next regular meeting of the TACC will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 28 in the TACC building.

The TACC welcomes individual memberships as well as businesses in the Thorndale area and all of Milam County and adjoining counties.

Our mission is to promote family friendly activities in the area and to promote and improve the business climate for our members. If you would like more information about TACC, please contact TACC president Brian Morton at 512-658-5378 or any TACC member.
