August 14th
Dallas Street, block between 1st & 2nd street

Everyone come enjoy the fun of watching and catching over 800 ping pong balls being dropped. Gather up the balls and cash in on the savings. Local merchants are sponsoring the balls with lots of free stuff and ways to save. Some will give away school supplies, some in store credit, some a percentage off of your purchases and some balls can be redeemed for free merchandise.

Participating merchants so far: Cranford's Shoes, The Petal, Treats and Treasures, Strawberry Patch Too, Lawsons, Movie City, Mary Kay and Alco. I apologize if I left out a business, several committee members are still out there collecting more sponsors.

Everyone who comes downtown will also be given a free canvas shopping bag reminding them to "Shop Talihina First!"

This event is being sponsored by Talihina Main Street.
If you would like to help with the event or advertise your business with some balls, just let me know.

Just about half of the ping pong balls are sponsored so far and the collective value of the merchant giveaway is over $900.00 in free merchandise and in store credit. This doesn't account for the %off of store purchases.
Talihina businesses are the most generous group of people. Please remember them and "Shop Talihina First!".

Everyone is invited downtown this Saturday,August 14th to catch as many balls as they can. The drop will start at 11PM.

New sponsors include: Betty Gail's Bakery, TJ's Diner and Talihina Tag Agency.

Unfortunately, I woke up really sick this morning and missed it. Was there a good turnout? Hopefully I can make it next year. I think it is a wonderful idea.

I could not make it... to many unforseen issues.. (which sucks, I normally make it to these things) There looked to be several people, and it looked like it would be fun.. To bad it was 102 degrees..

I think next time the unbrellas should be out lawed. I heard several people saying how they were poked or scratched by them.

Idea, I have heard the same thing. We didn't know they would cause a problem with it being our first time. Next year we can say no umbrella's or container.
Let's hope for a cooler August next year. This is a time of the year that the retailers really need a boost. Most people go out of town to shop for school clothes and our merchants need something to get the attention back to them.

Thanks to everyone that came and hope Mother of 3 is feeling better.
