From the mayor,
NOTICE: Box 100 has opened the Multipurpose Building behind City Hall for anyone seeking shelter from the major storms heading our way. This is for Thursday, February 24th.
What are you ideas for performing random acts of kindness, LaVergne?
Quick! The lyrics are from…
Okay I’m not really going to tell you. However I did want to mention that we have a yard sale link here on TiLaV. I’ve moved it over to the left hand side of the page (under Sites of Interest) since it seems to have disappeared off the top of the page.
I’m hoping the weather will be nice this weekend for a yard sale scheduled at 1534 Ridgemont Drive. From 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., you will fine baby items including crib, mattress, car seat, and girl’s clothes, and some home decor items.
So… it’s FRIDAY! What’s on your mind?
For today’s new word, let’s explore Mashup. According to Urban Dictionary.com, mashup is “v. To take elements of two or more pre-existing pieces of music and combine them to make a new song. n. A song comprised of elements of two or more pre-existing pieces of music.”
Mayor Elect Senna Mosley called me this morning with an idea for our own LaVergne Mashup. She would like to invite people who are attending the Swearing-In Ceremony tomorrow (Thursday) at 6:00 p.m. to consider bringing a new toy for the police department’s “Toys for Children” program.
Ms. Mosley said one of her goals as mayor is to invite residents to be more involved in community activities like the Toy Drive. Any new unwrapped toy is welcome because children of all ages are being served. Need is not limited to age, so little kid and big kid toys are wanted.
If you have questions, again you can contact Alderman Waldron at at 708-2909 or Lt. Cindy Murphy at 394-8402.
By the way, the best mashup (imo) of all times is the Green Day “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” mix with Oasis “Wonderwall” … great great music mix, especially the Aerosmith thrown in at the end, “Sing women, sing for the years, sing for the laughter, sing for the tears…” (Earworm!)
Ay yi yi… what a busy day in LaVergne! We started this morning at Hurricane Creek Boat Ramp with a clean-up activity. Tons of people showed up, including this old woman with creaking limbs, an out-of-control sciatic nerve, and easily-sunburned skin! My little group filled up three bags of litter from along Stones River Road.
Photos after the jump…
First, thanks to the many kind words today from people passing by our table at the Trail of Treats (some photos to follow). One person asked if the city has any animal control officers and I promised to link some contact info tonight.
If there is immediate danger, you may call 911 (emergencies only).
If you have been bitten by a neighborhood dog, but the pooch isn’t tearing your throat out, you may call the local police to file a report. The dog will likely be quarantined even if shots are up to date. To reach local police – the non-emergency number…
Finally, thank you again to the kind souls who donated candy or money for our table today. Happy Halloween!
Sorry to say that I’m not the sports enthusiast that so many of my friends are. However, even *I* know when this is a fantastic auction! Scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m. Sunday, October 10th, the auction will be held at Buffalo Wild Wings immediately following the Titans-Cowboys game.
All proceeds will be donated to the annual Christmas for the Children program sponsored by Bob Parks Realty agents. We have been able to help hundreds of families since I’ve been a real estate agent, probably even thousands since the program started. We contact schools in our local communities and ask guidance counselors which families need a little help at Christmas. We then make sure the children (whether they’re in school or not) get new clothing and toys at Christmas. The number of schools we contact will depend on how much money is raised.

My favorite items: Steve McNair autographed football, two Les Paul guitars, and a sunset dinner cruise on Center Lake!
