Donelson Neighborhood News October 2016
Vice Mayor Briley called a special hearing on gun violence before the October 18th Council Meeting. Presentations from Metro Health Department Dr. Bill Paul and MNPD Chief Steve Anderson were very informative and provided suggestions for how to curb this violence by getting more involved in providing opportunities and mentoring for youth. Chief Anderson provided heat maps of Davidson County showing where incidents have occurred over the last few years.

Thanks to an invitation from Bob and Deb Strasser to come to their farm to be part of the annual Mud Tavern Community reunion. I learned a great deal about the history of this community that has stayed connected through this annual event. It is gratifying to see the wonderful history of Nashville preserved and celebrated here in Donelson.
