If you know anyone who fits this description, WE WANT THEM!  Our guidelines are as follows:

The Princess and the Green Hat

stpattyTeam Taylorsville’s St. Patty’s Day Spring Fling Dance was a great success for Smith Co. Relay for Life.  We had 43 children to attend the dance.  The highlight of the evening was the crowning of the best  Irish dancers.  The vote was by secret ballot with Peyton Hetrick being presented with a Irish Princess sash and crown and Calvin Boyland receiving a green felt hat. Team Taylorsville’s members are:

Rosalyn Glenn, Hilda Powell, Patricia Blakeney, Tina Jordan , Janette Brewer and Marcy Jordan. Look in next week’s paper for our next event "Jail and Bail" for all the details.

Have you ever ask yourself that question, can I buy that in Taylorsville? With rising gasoline prices you may want to consider buying local. It helps everyone if you “Shop in Taylorsville”. According to the 2010 Census we lost 86 people. Our population now is 1255.

We are cleaning up the West Industrial Park site by having it bush hogged and a sign erected to attract new industries. Our present Industrial Park is getting a new sign with the help of the existing business owner’s paying for their name to be placed on the sign.

We need to display a positive image of our town at all times because you never know who is looking. Economic Development is needed everywhere but let’s start at home. Spend your money in Taylorsville.”
