Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association - Mill Creek in Donelson

Donelson Non-Profit News – August/September 2015

The weather is starting to cool off a bit and there are some great events to enjoy in the weeks ahead!  Don’t forget the Hip Donelson Community Farmer’s Market is going strong every Friday until the end of October.  Lots of great information about what’s going on at the market can be found at their website.

I had a blast the weekend before last helping out the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association in building a new access point to Mill Creek.  It is located just off Elm Hill Pike under the bridge going over Mill Creek, just across from the site of the Buchanan Station Cemetery.  It was hard work, but a lot of fun and I met some new friends.  The TSRA built a very successful access point on Stones River near Kohl’s a couple years ago.  I’m meeting with them soon about a couple other possible locations to build access points in Donelson.  Check out their website above to learn more about what this great organization is all about.

The final Music at the Mansion for 2015 is coming Friday, September 18 and will feature the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band.  The great group of musicians puts on a fun show for everyone and is sure to be a good time at the Two Rivers Mansion.

The Donelson Community Garden is doing a Fall clean-up and needs volunteers.  Contact Jan King via their Facebook page to come out and help.  She and her team have done an incredible job turning this site into a very beautiful community garden!

The Larry Keeton Live Music series is back with two shows September 25 and 26 that will be during the evening of the annual Donelson Fall Festival & BBQ.  See poster below for details.  I’m also a proud sponsor of the BBQ this year.  Check out their website for the latest newsletter to see all the activities going on during the BBQ weekend and more at FiftyForward Donelson Station.
