The 2018 Hip Donelson Community Farmer’s Market season is almost here! It kicks off May 4th. There are always needs for volunteers and sponsors to support the market. Please visit the website to volunteer and learn about sponsorship opportunities. Thanks to everyone for your continued support of the market. I look forward to this being the biggest season yet at the new location at Two Rivers Mansion!
The Neighborhoods Resource Center is launching their inaugural Conference for Neighborhoods on April 14th. One of the breakout sessions is called “From Neighborhood Leader to Metro Council Member” and pleased to join District 34 Councilwoman Angie Henderson and District 6 Councilman Brett Withers on this panel. There are other breakout sessions and panels, so I encourage anyone currently involved or interested in being involved in your neighborhood to look into attending this conference.
Fifty Forward Donelson Station will be hosting a casino night in support of the center. See details in the flyer below.
Grace Story Church is a new church for Donelson and is “a community where everyone is welcome because there’s no one to impress and nothing to prove. To put it simply, we’re a community defined by grace.” They launch their services on Sunday, September 17th at 4pm and they’re located at 400 Donelson Pike in the building by the playground. Visit their website at the link above for more info.
Dear Neighbors and Friends,
I am humbled and filled with deep gratitude for the strong victory last night electing me your next member of Metro Council for the 15th District.
I’m very proud to say that the confidence you have placed in me is not a statement of “now it’s time to get to work”, it’s a statement of “let’s continue the work we are doing on a greater and deeper level”. Just over the past month, the facelift of McGavock High School has begun, two Neighborhood Watch’s are being formed by new neighborhood leadership in Sunset View and Eva Mor Heights and the hard work and challenge of revitalizing the heart of Donelson’s business community continues. By electing me to be your next Councilman, you’ve given me the great honor of serving all our neighborhoods, schools, non-profits and businesses in Donelson. I love this community and will continue being an attentive, focused and dedicated public servant. I look forward to the years ahead and am confident of Donelson’s bright future.
One note – this election season is not yet over. As you know, there will be a run-off election on September 10th for Mayor and Council At-Large. Encourage your neighbors who may not be registered to do so by Monday, August 10. They will then be eligible to vote in the run-off. Head to www.nashville.gov/vote for all voter information.
With a grateful heart, I am sincerely yours,
