Kingston Springs: NEWS FROM CITY HALL



There are a few tickets left for the General Jackson for Monday, May 13th from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm. This cruise down the Cumberland includes lunch, entertainment and door prizes. If you are over 55, plan to join this group of 25 for a fun spring day. Tickets are $25 which is HALF the normal price. This is a special cruise for the over 55 age group. No children allowed. If you would like one of the remaining tickets, call Brandy or Laurie at 952-2110 at City Hall. Hurry! We don’t expect them to last very long!

The 13th Annual City-Wide Yard Sale is NEXT Saturday, May 4th from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. There is no charge to list your yard or garage sale on the free map for shoppers, call 952-2110, ext. 10 before NOON on Monday, April 29th. Leave your name, address and phone number if you get voicemail. At this writing there are over 60 yard sales registered in a 4 sq. mile area. Hundreds of shoppers will be out that day looking for bargains!

This Saturday, April 27th, is your opportunity to clean out your medicine cabinet of old, outdated drugs. We were taught as kids to flush these types of items. However, these improperly disposed drugs end up in the Harpeth River or seeping into the water table from land fills. Flushing is NOT the answer. National Drug Take Back Day creates an alternate way to dispose of these drugs. The Town of Kingston Springs, Kingston Springs Pharmacy, Second South Cheatham Utility District and the Harpeth River Watershed Association have partnered with the DEA to hold this event in an effort to protect our water sources. At the same time, you will also be removing drugs that could end up in the hands of abusers. (You will also gain cabinet space after you throw these drugs out!) This is easy to do. Just put them in a bag and bring them to L.L. Burns Park on Saturday from 10:00 until 2:00. You can “drive thru” to drop them off. It will take less than 2 minutes. Many of you may have drugs left over from child or parental care. Now is the time to get rid of them. Anyone living in the area of Kingston Springs and Pegram is welcome to drop by and drop off.
