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 basketball coach Keith Dambrot 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.
Conversations & More would like to invite the community to meet author Sara Ruble March 12 at 7 p.m. at the Tallmadge Community Center, 80 Community Road. The name of her new book is "Grief and Pain: Life's Greatest Challenges … It ALL Has Meaning -- Part III."
Ruble is founder of the Christmas Box Angel of Hope Children's Memorial in Stow. Her love for her only child, Scott, and his death at 19 brought her to a place of needing greater understanding … a deep need to understand more about the pain and grief and all that came with it. Meet Ruble and learn how through her own spiritual experiences and seeing the "bigger picture" brought her clarity and peace of mind. Ruble will share what she has learned about grief and pain…and how it can help others.
