Donelson Non-Profit News - February 2019
I’m thrilled that our American Legion Post 88 will be building a brand new facility on McCampbell Avenue. I was honored to attend the ground breaking ceremony. Below is a picture of me reviewing the plans with Post 88 Commander Len Chappell. Also, as part of their efforts to continue raising money for their new home, they have launched a brick campaign. See flyer below. Please spread the word and help them sell out of these bricks to make it an even more special place that honors our Veterans.
The American Legion asked me to take part in judging their oratory contest as part of their High School Oratorical Scholarship Program. It was held on Saturday, February 9th at Lakewood Baptist Church at 400 Donelson Pike. See the flyers below to learn more about this great program.
Joey and I attended a wonderful Holiday concert from the Nashville Singers. They are a fantastic group and are a non-profit entity that also gives back through scholarships for music education. I was honored to present a proclamation from Mayor Briley to the group at the concert held at Lebanon Road Church of Christ.
I was very happy to learn about an Insight Counseling Center location being added to Andrew Price United Methodist Church. They offer services that support individuals and families. I was happy to join Pam Brown, Carol Smith and Karen Montgomery with Insight Counseling and Andrew Price UMC Senior Pastor Melisa Derseweh and Trustee Ralph Foley to help them cut the ribbon on the new center.
