Our meeting for May was an Open Topic Night plus a "Get to Know Your Neighbor" segment: Inice and Ed Patnode.  We also celebrated an early Cinco de Mayo with an array of Mexican dishes to enjoy.


At our April Meeting, the Fayette Academy Drama group shared excerpts from their upcoming spring musical, “Annie.” Here they are enjoying the potluck dinner provided by the Association


Above are the photos from our February meeting.  Somerville Banjo crafter, Tommy George, shared with us his local, handmade art of custom crafting banjos.  He and his business partner, Christian Stanfield, believe that banjos are extremely important to Tennessee’s musical heritage.  Their art was featured in this fall’s edition of Tennessee Home and Farm magazine.  We all enjoyed the performance.

Hello Everyone,

     Things continue to happen fast as we just had one election and another is coming up in November. More on that in a minute. Also, our children are already back in school and many have gone off to college.We know and have experienced the loneliness when our children leave the nest and go away to school, but it gets easier as we think of their eagerness to get that education and be prepared to face the challenges in a complex world.
     Back to the November mid term election. This will be an extremely important election, mainly for governors, senators and congressmen. Their decisions affect many aspects of our every day lives, so it is highly important that we go vote. This election will impact education, immigration, tariffs, environmental problems, military defense, freedom of speech and many more important issues which are coming under attack. I respectfully ask that you do your research and then do your civic duty and vote.
     Superintendent Marlon King continues to make great progress in improving our Fayette County Public Schools. His vision is proving right on as he continues to hire the right people to fill all needs. He continues to do the right things at the right times and I believe within the next five years we will have one of the best public school systems in the state. My typing does not permit but, to see for yourself, just go to the web site or go by to give him a word of encouragement and he will tell you all about it.
     For your information, The West Fayette Republican Club meets tomorrow night at 6:30 at the Warren Church, 11800 US64. It is pot luck, so bring a vegetable, salad, bread, dessert or something and join us for a nice get together. All are welcome, not just repuiblicans. Hope to see you there.
     As you are aware, I did not run for re-election, so this is my last letter to you and my last Commission meeting is the 28th. Robbie Sills is going to fill this position and he is a fine young man. I truly believe we are extremely fortunate to have young people, like him, willing to take on the political challenges in today's world. The only sadness I have about leaving is I won't get to work with him. I will give this email list to him, as he has stated he will continue to keep us updated.
     It is my parting desire to leave you with this scripture from the NIV interpretation of the Bible, 2 Corinthians 13:14. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Kindest regards,
Homer Bunker
