This year marks the Sesquicentennial or 150 year milestone of the incorporation of the Town of Tazewell. Many special events are being planned in celebration. To extend the celebration, the event planning committee is designing a commemorative Taztown-opoly game based in the classic Monopoly game. Businesses, events and landmarks will be featured that are the heart of Tazewell. Board spaces and corresponding deeds are on sale now, depicting company logo and a description of the business. Spaces range in price from $350 to $100. To include all businesses that want to be a part of the game, we are also selling the traditional Monopoly Community Chest and Chance cards for $30, with the business description printed on the card. All proceeds will go towards all the exciting events planned for the celebration. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to showcase your business and be a part of the history of Tazewell.
Those interested should call the Treasurer’s Office at Town Hall 276-988-2501 by April 8 to reserve a limited space or card. The design process will start later in April and each business will be contacted for the unique illustration of their business. Sales to the public should be available in the fall just in time for that special Christmas gift. The Sesquicentennial Committee looks forward to joining every one for this once in a lifetime celebration of the Town of Tazewell.
