The success of the restoration, preservation and increased community awareness of The Friends of Two Rivers Mansion continues to receive much deserved recognition. Congratulations on receiving The Commissioner’s Award at the recent Metro Preservation Awards. The picture is Mayor Megan Barry presenting the award to Vice President Marilyn Swing and President Phil Howard.
The Two Rivers Mansion’s popular “Music at the Mansion” summer season is back and once again kicks off the series with the Nashville Symphony! See poster below for all the dates and shows this summer. Come on out and enjoy a great evening of music under the stars.
Don’t forget the Hip Donelson Community Farmer’s Market is every Friday from May – October, 4-7pm. They have a fantastic website that is always updated with the latest news, events, music and much more. Check out the flyers below, especially about the double SNAP program for those with EBT cards. I look forward to seeing you there.
