American Legion Post 88 Concept

Donelson Non-Profit News February 2016

The Friends of Two Rivers Mansion and the Metro Historic Commission selected Encore Interpretive Design to manage the master planning process for the Two Rivers Mansion, 1802 House and 14-acre property.  This is an exciting time for this historic crown jewel of Donelson.  The community is invited to a kick-off of the process on Wednesday, February 24th at 5:30pm at Two Rivers Mansion.  Come learn how you can be part of this process and what deliverables to expect.

The American Legion Post 88 has been working hard on a plan to beautify and enhance the War Memorial triangle site that has been there since 1970.  Thanks to an architect team at Lose & Associates for helping put the vision to paper.  We’ve now presented it to TDOT and are awaiting their assessment and approval, which I hope to receive so plantings could be done this Spring.

As a graduate of Leadership Donelson-Hermitage, I can attest at the experience of being involved with the organization to be very fulfilling and a worthy investment.  As an alumnus, I have the opportunity to Chair the Government & Media Day for the prospective classes and I truly enjoy it.  The annual recruitment event, LeadUP, is coming Monday, March 7.  See flyer for details and to RSVP to come out to learn more about how this great organization can open up doors and create lifelong friends.
