2008 East Nashville Calendars now Available!

Only 11 shopping days left until Christmas!!!!

Just a reminder:

13-month full-color calendars celebrating East Nashville are available for $10 each. All photos were taken by East Nashville residents of East Nashville. Local businesses each sponsored a month of the calendar.

Sampling of some of the includeded photos:

-February 2008 - snow-covered entrance to Shelby Bottoms
-April 2008 - image of tornado damage from April 1998 tornado
-June 2008 - rainbow over East Park (photo by Alan Murdock)
-August 2008 - photo of Mr. Tomatohead (from TomatoFest)
-October 2008 - Canoe to Work Day (canoes & kayaks on the Cumberland River)

You can purchase your calendar at the following retailers:

- Art & Invention Gallery - 226-2070 (open 'til 6:00pm everyday, 1-5pm on Sunday)
- Alegria - 227-8566 (Corner of 16th and Ordway) - open at least 'til 6:00pm everyday
- Urban Decor - 226-0173 (901 Main Street)

They are also available at the Margaret Maddox YMCA and soon at Groove record shop.

We hope you will buy one for yourself and several for your friends (to make them jealous of our cool little neighborhood). We are aiming to make this an annual project to promote a positive East Nashville, but a lot will depend on the sales of this year's calendars.

All proceeds benefit the programs of Rediscover East. Most recently we participated in distributing/planting over 500 trees throughout East Nashville. Our main focus in the coming year will be the 10-anniversary of 1998 East Nashville tornado and continuing work to realize the vision of East Nashiville Civic Square (oval) in front of East Literature Magnet.

Happy Holidays from Rediscover East!!!
