Bird dog tumblers for sale

From Staff Reports

Acrylic tumblers and mugs sporting the Bird Dog Capital of the World could be the next big thing in Burke County.

Waynesboro Downtown Development Authority (DDA) members are taking orders for the customized Tervis Tumblers and are hoping they’ll be big hits with Christmas shoppers and field trial enthusiasts.

The microwavable, scratchproof cups come in a variety of sizes from 10 to 24 oz. and are guaranteed for life. Customers may purchase single tumblers or boxed gift sets. Spill-proof travel lids are also available.

According to DDA chair Lindsai Mobley, the tumblers are expected to arrive by Halloween and will be available at the Nov. 21 Downtown Open House and Dec. 3 Christmas on Liberty. Several downtown merchants are working with DDA to stock the tumblers on their shelves, as well.

Since quantities are limited, orders placed before Oct. 20 will be given first priority and are available for pick-up as soon as the shipment arrives.

To download an order form and view the tumblers, go to www.downtownwaynesboroga.org or become a DDA fan on facebook by searching “Downtown Waynesboro: Main Street.” Forms are also available at the DDA office at the Waynesboro Fire Department and at the Burke County Chamber of Commerce.

All proceeds benefit the DDA and its Inside-Out Grant Program, which provides up to 50 percent matches business owners who want to improve downtown properties.
