Donelson Neighborhood News – May 2019
Congratulations to Merry Oaks neighbors for kicking off a campaign event on June 1st from 4-7pm on Woodberry Court to build their own beautified entranceway sign. If you’re in Merry Oaks or want to contribute to this project, see flyer below for details.
Also in Merry Oaks, they were identified as the neighborhood needing paving the most and will be getting the following streets paved during the warm months:
- Deerwood Road from Fairway Drive to Blue Hills Drive
- Fairway Drive from Lebanon Pike to Deerwood Road
- Elm Tree Drive from Elm Hill Pike to Acord Drive
- Mapleleaf Drive from Elm Tree Drive to Massman Drive
Another sign recently cleaned up by Craigmeade neighbor Josh Gulick turned out great. Neighbors have plans to continue working on it.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the May 18 Clean-Up for the community organized by District’s 12 and 15 Beautification Commissioners Erin Evans and Michele Mazzu respectively. Thanks to McGavock High School for hosting, Sgt Jeff White with MNPD for collecting old prescriptions, Troop 700 for spending the morning collecting tons of trash on the area around McGavock Pike near the school and all the volunteers. Randy Mazzu, Karen Cowell and I enjoyed cooking burger and hot dogs for everyone in the Dumpster Diner.
A good friend in music, Shannon Williford was a Metro Parks employee and ran the summer music programs for Parks and also earned a Keeping the Blues Alive Award from The Blues Foundation for his Blues in the Schools programs here in Nashville. He recently performed one of his programs at Two Rivers Middle. He and family moved back home to Louisiana and he will be missed but wish him well and so thankful for his friendship and service to so many kids in Nashville. Terry Bulger at WSMV recently did a story about him. Enjoy it here.
Congratulations to River Glen HOA President Pam Miller for being a finalist in Neighbor 2 Neighbor (https://www.tnrc.net/) ’s Trew Neighbor Award named after in remembrance of Donelson’s very own Frank Trew. She was among great neighborhood leaders in the county recognized for her tireless efforts on behalf of her neighborhood.
