Stones River Women's Club

Donelson Non-profit News – June 2019

I am thankful the opportunity to return to visit with the Stones River Women’s Club.  They do a great deal of impactful projects in the community and I always enjoy my annual visits to bring them up to speed on things happening at Metro Council and in Donelson.

Speaking of Two Rivers Mansion, at the Friends of Two Rivers Mansion annual “Phil the House with Art & Friends” event, former District 15 Councilman and founder of the Friends group returned to showcase his latest series of Donelson prints entitled “Donelson Revived”.  You can see them all at Picture This.  I thought these two would be perfect together as we’re witnessing the revitalization of Donelson Plaza plus a new library.  Proceeds from the sale of these prints support the Friends group.

Don’t forget the Hip Donelson Farmer’s Market is happening there every Friday as well as tours of the Mansion property are going on now as well.  Visit this link for more information on Two Rivers Mansion events.

I’m very proud of my son Joey and his Boy Scout Troop 777 and all of the other Scouts for placing flags on the grave sites of our heroes at Nashville National Cemetery during Memorial Day weekend.

As you drive by our two Donelson Gateway Project entranceway signs, check out the circles on top and you’ll notice they’re new. The graphic in their circle was always hard to see and had become faded. We replaced it with the DGP logo.
