My bad. I haven’t written the press release on this yet. I am jumping the gun by posting this info here. But TiLaV readers have stuck by this site through thick and thin, so again… am jumping ahead.
Not only do we have an official Facebook page now AND a Twitter account, but we’re growing more! So click through and like, follow, comment, have fun.

LaVergne TN wants Old Navy
LaVergne Command Duck (I humor them only.)
I believe a fan page is coming for the LaV Senior Center, as well.
It’s been awhile since we’ve opened this up, though it doesn’t appear anyone is having trouble expressing their opinions on the other posts. So what’s on your mind?

I saw this on my friend Angie’s Facebook status update and thought it would be something really important to share here. Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps is coming to Nashville via McGavock High School on February 19th and 20th. The medical entourage is seeking help from local dentists, dental hygienists, optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians.
With more than 600 missions throughout the U.S. already completed – including one in L.A. where 10,000 people were helped – the two-day health clinic is open to anyone within the Channel 4 viewing area. It is advised that people arrive by 3:00 a.m. each morning in order to get help at this first-come, first-served clinic.
From Channel 4 news,
“We’re having a free medical mission for patients without health insurance, people unable to pay for health insurance,” Sanfilippo said. “We will provide free vision care, medical care and dental care as well.”
Click and read the entire story to learn more about the program AND the volunteers needed.

I can’t confirm some news I read on Facebook that one of our young adults of LaVergne passed away yesterday. If it’s true – and I pray that it is not – I hope the family knows my thoughts and prayers are with them, their daughter, family and friends. May you find peace in this time of sorrow.
I won’t publish a name or more information until it’s verified.

From the Facebook fan page for This is LaVergne, I learned about a 14-year old girl from LaVergne suffering from renal cell carcinoma, a type of kidney cancer in which the cancerous cells are found in the lining of very small tubes (tubules) in the kidney.
Tay Tay’s mother Maria is trying to raise money to offset the costs of this terrible disease by selling “Pray 4 Tay” bracelets. If you’d like to buy one of the bracelets for $2.00 – or send donations – here’s how:

It would be great if you could how this family some love and support.
