June  2019

 

 

 

The Hickory Withe Community Association met on June 6, 2019 at the HW Presbyterian Church.  The meeting opened with the Pledge and a prayer.

 

Thirty Five people attended and there were a few newcomers.

 

After a wonderful pot luck meal, the program was given by Christian Stanfield and Tommy George.  They presented several banjos from different eras of time since around the turn of the twentieth century.  They played their incredible hand-crafted musical instruments, and also played vintage recordings on an old Victrola phonograph.   It was a fascinating and historical presentation.

 

The business covered included naming a new slate of association officers for the next term.  The list will be finalized soon and voted on by the membership.

 

Also covered was preparation for the next meeting in July which will be the First Responders appreciation event.  It will be held on Thursday, July 11th at the First Baptist Hickory Withe church gym.  The event will include food, tributes, and door prize gifts that are being prepared to honor our community’s first responders.

 

The meeting was adjourned.

Minutes taken and submitted by Sandra Brewer, Secretary

Hello fellow Fayette County Citizens and Friends!
Spring has finally sprung and I hope you all are enjoying the sunshine and beautiful weather as much as I am.  Our County is continuing to grow and thrive and I believe it is a place we can all be proud to call home.  The last few months have been very active and we will see increased activity over the next few months as we begin deliberating over the budgets for the County.  I would encourage each of you to get involved and attend a County Commission meeting so that you can hear first hand how your dollars are being disbursed.  
Most recently we have received numerous letters, calls, and complaints about the trash on the roads, especially in the more rural areas, and we are taking action.  Last week during Development Committee we recommended reallocating funds from the litter department to the Sheriff’s Office.  The individual who was overseeing the litter pick-up is retiring and this will give us a more active response with the Deputies and inmates running the trash clean-up efforts.  I believe you will quickly begin to notice a cleaner County and at little to no increased cost!
Our County Schools are also continuing their great work and more than just a few have taken notice.  Within the last few weeks our Governor, Bill Lee, took a tour of Fayette-Ware’s College, Career, and Technical Education programs and stated he was highly impressed with the things he saw happening.  Most recently the new TN Commissioner of Education, Dr. Penny Schwinn toured Oakland Elementary’s classrooms and had in-depth discussion with the teachers and staff there.  Having the leaders of Tennessee come to our schools just further shows that we are on the move in the right direction.  Let Dr. King know how much you appreciate his and the members of the school board’s efforts to make education in Fayette County a priority!  Great job team!
Last, but not least, Easter is tomorrow!  I know this day will be filled with egg hunts and family meals, but I hope you will all take time out of your day to celebrate the Risen Savior!
“ For God so loved the world, that he gave His only son...”. Happy Easter Fayette County!
Our next Commission meeting is Tuesday at 7:00 in the Justice Complex in Somerville.  Please reach out if I can serve you in any way.
