Nashville, TN, March 09, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The 2012/2013 political year is historic for Nashville. 50 years ago the Metro government combined the city and county into a unified body and this unique concept has rippled across the country as a model. Other cities that are consolidated as city-county include Indianapolis, Indiana; Jacksonville, Florida; Louisville, Kentucky and Athens, Georgia, among others.
In honor of this historic year, many events are springing up around Nashville, such as a recent panel discussion centered around Nashville’s Neighborhood Associations. Labeled Metro@50, the event took place at Lipscomb University and was moderated by John Seigenthaler.
The city itself will host a bash on April 6, 2013 at the Historic Metro Courthouse where residents will find music, food, history and shopping.
Just a week after this, on April 13, Council member Sandra Moore will host a District 17 celebration to honor Metro’s 50th. This celebration will take place at John Wesley United Methodist Church beginning at noon. Many churches from the district will participate with a musical selection to salute the many great leaders of Metro.
Church choirs participating include Belmont United Methodist Church, Southside Community Church, Church of the Messiah, Seay-Hubbard United Methodist Church, Saint Luke’s Primitive Baptist Church, Church of Scientology and more.
During the program there will also be a historic overview of District 17 with special attention to the past leaders, historic sites and the Trail of Brown’s Creek.
All District 17 residents are welcome and invited to take part in the festivities on April 13 from 12–2pm at John Wesley United Methodist Church. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
