LaVergne have we got a busy weekend for you! Word has it that there’s a big ball tournament in the park this weekend, so expect the roads to be busy. Â But what else is there?
Thursday we’ll find the Cruise-In hosted by the LaVergne Rotary Club. While we are not thrilled that it has moved outside of town to Smyrna in front of Firehouse Subs, we can say that the sandwich shop has been extremely generous to the city with their donation of the six-wheeler and trailer for search and rescue. Â THIS WEEK all money raised will be donated to the United Way and earmarked for LaVergne programs, so make an effort to stop by and pitch in $5 or $10 or $20. Or more. Sources tell me they have some pretty cool cars that participate!
On Friday,Carry the Load will be making an overnight stop in LaVergne as they pass through town. Â We heard it’s because of the phenomenal welcome they received last year. Â (See the picture? That was last year!). Â According to the city facebook page, they’ll be at the city limits between 4:00 and 4:15. Â People hoping to walk with them can meet on Lillian Buchanan Drive next to the post office to join the procession as they come through. Â They will stop at City Hall for their overnight rest and it’s at City Hall where the big, beautiful American flag will be on display. Â If you don’t walk with them, wear your red, white and blue and bring an American flag to welcome them as they journey down Murfreesboro Road. Â Sources tell me you might expect some traffic delays between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m.
On Saturday we have GRADUATION for LHS seniors! Â This will be at the Murphy Center on the campus of MTSU. How many graduation parties will there be throughout town? The twice-a-year book sale is also scheduled at the Library. You can pick as many books as you want for purchase and make whatever donation you feel is appropriate to pay for them. Â If you have a lot of money, make a good donation. If you don’t, that’s okay. Â But remember this is a fundraiser to help pay for new books and activities hosted at the library. It’s not a giveaway!
What else is going on this weekend, LaVergne?
