Donelson Non-Profit News November 2016
I was honored to attend Mass at the Cathedral of the Incarnation and present a Proclamation to recognize the 150th Anniversary of the Sisters of Mercy. Pennington Bend is home to one of their Retreat Centers. Joining me was US Congressman Jim Cooper, a representative from Lamar Alexander’s Office, State Senator Jeff Yarbro, State Senator John Ray Clemons. Pat Nolan moderated the event.
Congratulations to one of Donelson’s newest non-profit organizations, GROW Enrichment, for securing an agreement with Metro Parks to utilize land near Two Rivers Park, Two Rivers Mansion and the Two Rivers Dog Park for their educational offerings. They offer great classes. This is an exciting opportunity for them and I encourage everyone to support them!
