Big congrats to Lisa Maddox, who is our new Director of FiftyForward Donelson Station. Lisa is a fantastic leader at the center and her energy and passion for FiftyForward’s mission can be seen and felt each and every day. Thank you, Lisa and congrats on this very well deserved promotion! Lisa is seen here with Mark and Kevin with Donelson Café & Catering during the recent Casino Night fundraiser.
The Donelson Gateway Project’s annual Fall Work Day will be on Saturday, November 8th at 9am. Most of the help is needed at the Briley Parkway site, but we will be working at the Tollgate (Stewart’s Ferry) and Stones River Bridge sites as well. We will be spreading pine straw and planting winter color.
The Friends of Two Rivers Mansion will host their annual Holiday Historical Tours on December 12th, 13th, and 14th. This is an excellent opportunity to see the continued restoration progress and visit this unique historical treasure in Donelson decorated for the Holidays.
FiftyForward Donelson Station welcomed new a director, Angela Bryan, just over eight months ago and she is doing wonderful things at keeping our community center thriving and active. The 28th Annual Donelson Fall Festival & BBQ fundraiser was a big success and included live music, children’s activities, a haunted theater, much more, and of course fantastic BBQ. Congratulations to Angela and all involved in making it a success. Coming up will be a Holiday Craft Fair on December 6th during the Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce’s 30th Annual Christmas Parade. Contact Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a booth.
