Donelson Non-Profit News – April 2019
Leadership Donelson Hermtage’s Lead-UP event that is a gathering of those interested in being part of the next class was one of the largest turn-outs I’ve seen. Executive Director Deann Bradford and the board do an amazing job with the organization. I encourage everyone to check out their website as there is something for everyone that will enrich your life and help create lifelong friendships and great business networking opportunities. Their events are great as well and are open to anyone who would like to support the organization. Here’s a picture of me (Class of 2013) with two great people – Deann Bradford and Phil Ponder (Class of 1999).
I thoroughly enjoyed being a speaker at a recent Donelson-Hermitage Exchange Club meeting. They are a great organization and serve our community in extraordinary ways.

I had a great opportunity to welcome Colin Magee and Anne Coulter from Belfast, founders of the PANARTS Belfast Nashville Songwriter Festival. They brought three wonderful songwriters from Belfast on Saint Patrick’s Day to NECAT Network’s studios for a special show taping. Niamh McGlinchey, Allison Mcgrath and Rory Nellis all performed original songs. Belfast is a Sister City of Nashville’s and we have a special relationship.
