This Thursday is the kick-off for the Go Local! Campaign spearheaded by Patricia Lecy-Davis (she of the pink scooter) and that irrepressible bunch from Leadership Tacoma-Pierce County. It's also--and not coincidentally--the first day of the Tacoma Farmers Market. Both venues come together at 2:00 p.m. in Theater Square for a blast off!
The BIA is one of the sponsors for this program. We donated the banners that have been popping up lately on downtown's arterials.
This Friday is the day that downtown Tacoma recognizes those individuals, companies and groups that are making a difference. It's not another candidate forum--it's the fourth annual presentation of the New Tacoma Awards!
Over the past three years, the New Tacoma Awards have sparked excitement as the event has spotlighted outstanding achievers:
- Ghilarducci Award - Avanti Spa, Tacoma Art Museum, and Thea’s Landing
- Popham Award - Marty Campbell, Patricia Lecy-Davis, and Sondra Purcell
- Union Station Award – The Grand Cinema, John Tartaglia, and the University of Washington Tacoma
- Schoenfeld Award - Aroma Coffee, heel! Shoes and urbanXchange
