In Ballard Merchants Association

The and Tuesdays in Ballard ball continues to roll! Last week we officially formed the In Ballard Merchants Association, a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization to oversee the Tuesdays in Ballard campaign. On Tuesday, June 2, we had our first merchant meeting. It was attended by over 50 Ballard merchants, as well as the Ballard News Tribune and news organizations. At the meeting we unveiled the new Tuesdays in Ballard logo designed by Design Hovie Studios and provided information on the campaign. The response has been wonderful and many Ballard businesses are joining the campaign. Deadline for merchant sign up is June 9 and after that we will have a much better idea of the scope of things that will be able to be done this summer. All very exciting.
