set for April 20
Tallmadge Asphalt & Concrete will again serve as event sponsor for the 2013 Tallmadge Community Expo, scheduled for April 20.
The Expo is a one-day, communitywide event that began in 1997 and is held every other year in April. The Expo provides a single venue where Summit County area visitors can come to know the community of Tallmadge and what it has to offer. Guest celebrity this year will be former Ohio State University football coach Jim Tressel, now vice president of strategic engagement for the University of Akron, U of A head football coach Terry Bowden and Kent State University head football coach Paul Haynes.
The Expo will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tallmadge Recreation Center, 46 N. Munroe Road. Exhibitors rent booth space to showcase their products, services and capabilities.
Booth space is moving along, with more than 40 exhibitors booked.
As there is limited space for booths, those who haven't sent in their form to reserve a booth are asked to do so as soon as possible.
Those interested in renting exhibitor booth space should contact the Tallmadge Chamber of Commerce at 330-633-5417 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
