Chamber to bring back "Taste of Tallassee"

By Michael Butler

It has been several years since the Tallassee Chamber of Commerce has put on a "Taste of Tallassee." This year it returns.

Director Jerry Cunningham has set a date for the event and a venue. It will be on Thursday, Nov. 7 at the National Guard Armory.

"So far, everyone that I've asked has agreed to do it," Cunningham said. "Right now we have about 15, but I'm hoping to get 20-25."

Cunningham has concentrated his efforts within the city limits so far.

"We'll step out a little bit once I make sure everybody in town has their opportunity."

In addition to a smorgasbord of food choices, Todd Gantt and The Tone Deaf Hobos will provide the musical entertainment.

Ticket prices have yet to be set.

"I have a price in mind, but the committee will set the price. Our intention is to set it pretty low. We want people to come out and make it a family affair. The idea in mind is to not charge any more than you would go out and pay for a meal. That's the whole idea."
