One day last week, I went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and while I was there, got to attend a Tennessee Smokies baseball game. They have got a beautiful stadium, and here’s a shot of their scoreboard.
I’ve also been busy with our annual Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society. This year, our county goal was $115,000 – we’re at $106,000 right now, but money is still coming in, and we are confident that we will make our goal. The county theme was “Don’t Give Cancer a Sporting Chance,” and our team chose football – here’s a picture of our team banner, and a few of our “players”.
I know a lot of you are familiar with Relay For Life, but those of you who aren’t really need to look into getting involved. It’s a fun event, and a great way to raise money for cancer research. Just call your local American Cancer Society office for the details.
And, to all my great friends in country music, we could use your help … if any of you in the entertainment field have a free date this year and would like to help us out with a benefit concert for our fund raiser, please contact me. We’d love to have you!
We’ve got Fairs right around the corner, and a lot of other country music news, so check back tomorrow for some of that. And, remember, Aug. 8, is the release date for Toby Keith’s new movie, “Beer For My Horses.” First one to see it – please drop me a line and let me know what you thought. I’m not sure if we’ll get it around here opening day or not, but I’m hoping!
Take care, keep in touch, and thanks for reading Country’s Chatter!
