10 Things I Love About LaVergne

  1. I love that several times every year, the fireworks store on Murfreesboro Road lets it rip… fireworks up to Independence Day, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve!
  2. I love how the guys at Mixed Grill Gyros will make you a cup of hot tea – their own special blend not on the menu – if they like you.
  3. I love that the street lights sometimes pop on or off as you drive underneath them, making you feel magnetic or magical or … worried (?!) !!
  4. I love that from almost anywhere in LaVergne, you can get to downtown Nashville in just 30 minutes, depending on traffic of course.
  5. I love that there are two boat ramps here, along with at least one walking trail lakeside.
  6. I love that there are so many talented musicians in this town, evidenced by the phenomenal performance of The National Anthem during the November swearing-in ceremony.
  7. I love how sometimes when I drive home at night, I see deer.
  8. I love that when the USAF Thunderbirds come to our area to perform, we can often see them from our own front- or back- yards.
  9. I love that roundabout.  I really do.
  10. I love that you can walk through Kroger and say hello to at least one or two people you know.

What do you love about LaVergne?

Merry Christmas!!

    I love that in the 2 short years here I have made (and continue to make) a lot of friends and feel like I have been accepted into the community. Through my volunteering I feel like it's a two way street. I truly love serving my community that way!

    Merry Christmas to all!

    Old Timers Day. As cheesy as it sounds, I look forward to it every year.

    Veteran's Memorial Park.

    When the kids and I are bored we can always go feed the ducks at Hurricane Creek.

    I love living in La Vergne because of the people. They are like no other People in this entire country. They see a need and fill it without asking who, where or why. They volunteer without reservations. They expect nothing in return, not even a hand shake or a thank you. Then they come back the next day or night ready to start over. What wonderful people, the best part of the entire deal is that I am honored to call these people my friends and family.

    The top 10 things that I am thankful for.
    1. I am thankful for our new Mayor.
    2. I am thankful that our old Mayor is gone.
    3. I am thankful that the good old boys are leaving fast.
    4. I am thankful that the people of La Vergne want to see the city cleaned up as much as I do.
    5. I am thankful that the City hall and our roads are getting cleaned up. (snow and ice and signs)
    6. I am thankful that the city workers are getting to do their jobs without being told who to leave alone.
    7. I am thankful to see the people opening their eyes to the 2 board members for who and what they are.
    8. I am thankful to see all these people looking for city pride
    9. I am thankful for new beginnings, thank you Mayor Mosley, Vice Mayor Farmer and Alderman Broeker.
    10. I am thankful that I am not a new Mayor, Vice Mayor or Alderman.

    Merry Christmas La Vergne

    "4.I love that from almost anywhere in LaVergne, you can get to downtown Nashville in just 30 minutes, depending on traffic of course."

    30 minutes? I left my house last Thursday and clocked myself – 22.13 minutes from my driveway to my office in MetroCenter. You people are driving to slow!

    Of course in normal rush hour, that's about a 45 minute trip!

    *Rich innocently whistles* " We won't talk about driving times and uh well… speed" 🙂

      Hurricane Creek Boat Ramp, off Stones River Road. I didn't know of the trails before doing the community clean up at the Lake this past fall.
