Welcome. More than three years ago, Tally Connection was launched with a simple idea to connect readers to information, helping all to make the most of living in our beautiful and lively community. At that time and to this day, we're driven to provide free resources to you and free advertising and promotion to local businesses, organizations and nonprofits, to provide useful resources to all as a service to our community, promoting local living, and to support our communitys' nonprofits and charities in every way possible. Whether you’re here for the first time or back to see what’s new today, thank you for visiting. We welcome you to visit often for local events and deals, to browse our blog, to choose a restaurant or museum to visit, to plan a day outdoors or to share with your neighbors. Every visit helps us do more for you and our community.

Tally Connection is proudly brought to you by FSU Credit Union
