TACC Lending Library to open Sept. 1
Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce held their monthly meeting on July 24 at the TACC Building in downtown Thorndale. The minutes of the previous meeting were accepted as presented. The financial report was given by Treasurer Peggy Weise and included an updated final report on the Car Show and the Louis Run.
Commit tee repor ts were heard including a new business in Thorndale, Streamline Commercial Development, with owner Rodney Huband attending the meeting.
In old business, the 2013 Christmas Parade was discussed. Co-chairs Donna Harris and Deana Caffey were noted and they have begun work on the event.
The TACC Lending Library has made some progress. Several boxes of books have been donated and shelves have been purchased. The Lending Library will be open one day a week beginning around Sept. 1. Patrons will be able to check out one book for each book donated. When that book is returned, another book may be taken. There will be no fines collected and no due date for returning the book. Interest in the library is growing and the TACC feels it will be a welcome addition to our community. If you have any questions regarding the library, call Darleen Tucker at 512-898- 2727 for more information.
The Meriwether and Culpepper Circus is coming to town. The circus is slated for Oct. 14. Watch for more information as soon as our flyers begin to be posted around town. For more information on the circus, call Brian Morton at 512-658-5378.
In new business, the TACC expressed support of the new Girls’ Softball Field. Ideas were discussed on how to best support this new venture. The impact on the community of the Softball Field for increasing business in Thorndale was discussed and the TACC is requesting more information from the steering committee for the project.
Brian Morton noted that he had met with the new Milano City Council and discussed the Milam County Film Guidelines with them. The Milano City Council will consider the guidelines at their next meeting.

This is part of a Leadership Milam project to promote the adoption of identical Filming Guidelines in all the Milam County municipalities.
