Welcome Theresa to the Writing Team!

theresahesseIt is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Theresa Hesse, the newest writer/editor of This is LaVergne. Theresa has been a resident of our fair city for nearly 16 years, so has seen it grow and change for nearly two decades. When she moved here, there was but one traffic light.  There was a grocery store where CVS is now located along with Food Lion, and TeeGees was the only restaurant.

Theresa is the mother of two precious kids:  Robert (5th grade) and Robin (kindergarten).  Robin is currently the “Little Miss People’s Choice” of LaVergne and currently up for vote in LaVergne Loves as “Favorite Celebrity.”  (Mentioning that here may give Robin an edge, but that’s okay since she’s only 5 years old.  Sweet Robin turns 6 on February 13 and is very proud of that!).

Meanwhile Theresa is a Box 100 volunteer and loves to attend city activities (Trail of Treats, Old Timers Festival, parades, egg hunts, etc.).  If you ever want to talk with Theresa, you can easily find her at city functions. Theresa has been a guest author on many online sites and has written children’s stories.  In fact when she was in the 5th grade, one of her stories was “published” as a book (Bugsy Beetle Saves the Day, a story about a super-hero who happened to be a beetle) by the school librarian. How awesome would that be to have your name in a card catalog at 10-years old?

Please give Theresa a warm welcome at This is LaVergne.  And if you have story ideas for her, email her at theresa (dot) hesse (at) comcast (dot) net.

(Thank you Lola and Ivy for allowing me to write the introduction of my friend, Theresa.)

    Welcome Theresa and yes the store where CVS not seats was called The Pharmacy Market..store/pharmacy and then Simth’s CB store moved in for some competition. We had an M & M variety store where the Dollar store is, a skating rink where that Medical place is up around Tee Gee’s and Miss Nancy’s Bait shop where an auto parts place sits at the light where the underpass is. My how things have changed……….

      Linda, we used to have a skating rink?! I’ve been here since 1989 and had no idea, but I live on the west side of I-24 and may have just never noticed it. We also had Hardee’s back then, too. We were building our house and ate there almost every day for lunch.
