Editor’s note: Below is list of City of Terrell happenings from the City of Terrell.
It was no vampire, but the Carter BloodCare bus was on hand to host a recent City of Terrell blood drive. Among those donating were city employees Troy Smith, TPD Capt. Michael Bulin , Cindy Hunter and Mayor Rick Carmona. Our Library Director Becca Anderson tried to donate but, apparently, she needs to boost her iron levels a bit before they will let her.
Heart of Avon owner Erin Green . . . dropping off Avon books to City Hall and spreading excitement about Downtown Terrell.
Chamber of Commerce President Carlton Tidwell . . . surprising the Tuesday morning networking group with a new breakfast choice – breakfast tacos from Taco Cabana.
City Council District 3 representative Mayrani Velazquez, former Dist 3 City Council member Debra Kelley and Interim City Manager Mike Sims . . . sharing city news at the Stallings Neighborhood Association meeting.
The countdown is upon us. Hobby Lobby opens July 15 at 9 a.m. Join the Chamber for a ribbon cutting at 8:45 a.m. then be one of the first in the door to load your buggy. For future reference, when your wives are MIA on Saturday mornings, there’s a good possibility we might know where she is.
Front Porch owners Jerry and Beverly Burr . . . celebrating July with 50 percent off selected items every Friday.
Ashley “Ruby” Whitaker, Don Johnson and new Chamber of Commerce Director of Marketing Talana Morris . . . making a rare appearance at the weekly EDC meeting where they shared valuable insights about social media.
It’s Small Cities Month! What better way to celebrate than taking time to enjoy all our city has to offer – culture, great food, friendly community and my favorite – no traffic . . . well, maybe that’s a stretch! Seriously, it’s such a great community with much more to offer than many neighboring cities of comparable size. By the way, great job Terrell Chamber of Commerce on the 4th of July festivities and fireworks show.
Just announced . . . the theme for Terrell Chamber of Commerce 38th annual auction is “Sunsets and Spurs.” Mark your calendars for the 38th annual event on October 19.
Film Alley is hosting a live bird show to celebrate the release of The Lion King! The event begins at 10 a.m., July 20.
Stephanie Weems Jones . . . celebrating her 40th birthday (that means I’m really old) with a special celebration attended by friends and family.
Tanger Outlets .. . . celebrating the Summer Family Fun Festival July 11-14.
Walmart . . . hosting a Teachers Only Event with cake, ice cream, cold drinks, photobooths and goodie bags from 12:30 to 4:40 p.m. Saturday, July 13. The first 300 teachers at every store will receive a goodie bag with treats from Crayola, 3M, Bic, Fiskars and more! Please bring your teacher ID or email address.
Brookshire’s . . . Apparently their remodel has some locals worried. No need for a panic attack. It’s business as usual, aside from the confusion of finding things.
First Assembly of God Pastor Lonnie Harris . . . celebrating his last Sunday as the church’s lead pastor on July 7th. Mayor Rick Carmona was on hand to read a proclamation honoring him for 23 years of service. Although he is “retiring”, he will still be working alongside church staff, continuing his mission to “Help Hurting People.”
