Local educators create own economic stimulus

The Tri-County Teachers Association knows it receives a lot of support from parents, students, and others in the community and has found a way to say, “Thanks.” 
At 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, members of the association are banding together to form a “cash mob” and unleashing an economic wallop at Terrazza, 210 Franklin Village Drive, in Franklin. 
Cash mobs have become popular vehicles for supporting locally owned businesses. The “mob” selects a shop or business and then arrives en masse with each member committed to spending at least a minimum amount of money agreed upon by the group. 
“Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School teachers know that the families in the communities we serve appreciate the work we do with their children. That support is vital in our ability to develop the best programs possible for our students” said Tri-County Teachers Association President Mary Taintor. “We as an association wanted to show our support for the communities that use our school. We know it’s been tough out there for local businesses, so we chose one for our ‘cash mob’ to visit. A lot of teachers like Terrazza, so that became an obvious choice for us.”
