Cyndi's Expo Report

Cyndi:  I'm all set for my solo post today.  I'll be whispering ... er, reporting from deep within my news studio so the other Funny Farmers won't hear me and interfere.  You know what busybodies they are.

Last Thursday Jan went to the Thomaston Business Expo and I'm going to share a few photos from it.  Jan stood on the stage to take photos of the floor.  Not the floor specifically.  Perhaps I should change that to a stage view of the room.  There were a lot of vendor tables and visitors.

Businesses handed out cards, pens, candy and smiles as visitors stopped to learn about them.

Three Rivers Workforce Development.

Fletcher-Day Funeral Home.

A few friends from Thomaston Toastmasters.

Our mayor J. D. Stallings and Matt Sharpe, editor of The Upson Beacon.


To the left is the Publisher of The Upson Beacon, Debbie Lord.

Local artist Fawne of Flint Rose Studio. 

Here is the Flint Rose table again.

The folks manning the local Rotary Club table.

Upson County BOC (Board of Commissioners).

This is Tim.  He founded A.C.T.S. (Always Choose To Serve) Outreach of Georgia.  He is a firefighter and was exhausted, since he had just come off a 48-hour shift.  Instead of going home to bed, he attended the Expo. He works hard to raise funds to assist people in need. 

This is just for fun. 

Riverside Health & Rehabilitation.

Jan finally broke down and had her first taste of cotton candy in many, many, many years.

(Oh, sorry, Jan, I didn't mean to imply you're old.)  

She wasn't very impressed with it.

Two very nice humans from Gordon State College.

This ends my Expo 2016 report.  If you enjoyed the brief tour, we accept tips.  Bags of fishy flakes will do.  We all love them.  Except Jan, but that's okay.  I'll eat her share.



  1. My human found our house at a business expo! Well, she already knew about the house - she'd seen it and fell in love with it years before - but she didn't know it was up for sale until she stopped by the realtor's table. So business expos are great things!

  15. Well, great photos and of such wonderful and lively people! Your town sounds as if there are many programs for active adults (and kids) who want to serve the community. And Marci's report was spectacular, even if she did not get a taste of cotton candy. And yes, after childhood, it falls pretty flat....
    after kibble, I should say.

    Love, Loulou
