New Danville’s “Spring Thing” Announces Troy Ball as Guest Speaker

By  | 

WILLIS, TX — New Danville announced today that its speaker for the Spring luncheon Spring Thing, formerly know as Tea on the Lawn, is native Texan Troy Ball.

Born and raised in Texas, Troy Ball and her husband, on the advice of their doctor, needed to move to a climate that would be beneficial for their two disabled sons. Moving to the up-and-coming town of Ashville, North Carolina, they were invested in real estate development when in 2008, the market took a disastrous turn. Facing financial ruin, Troy sought a way out. Her story of grit and grace is fascinating. She speaks from the heart and at times will have the audience laughing and crying.

Chairing this year’s event are Odette D’Agostino and Karen Grace.




New Danville’s Spring Thing will be held at The Woodlands Resort, 2301 N Millbend Drive, The Woodlands TX 77380 April 24, 2020. Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. For more information including available sponsorships. please visit
