Jimmy Dunn speaks at Dunbar Cave

 

A postcard like photograph of the pool at Dunbar CaveSince September 8, 1936, when Papa Dunn ran up the path to Dunbar Cave yelling, “It’s a boy, it’s a boy!”, Jimmy Dunn’s history coincides with that of Dunbar Cave’s.  As a youth, Jimmy’s first job was to operate the popcorn machine by the cave entrance.  Later he operated a concession stand by the pool. 

Tonight he is giving a presentation, “Memories of Dunbar Cave”.  He has pictures and stories to share.  This presentation is free and open to the public.  It starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Dunbar Cave Visitor Center.

June Programs at Dunbar Cave

 

Dunbar Cave State Park - Clarksville TNClarksville, TN – This 110-acre natural area in Montgomery County is honeycombed by caves and sinkholes, the most prominent being Dunbar Cave. This 8.1 mile cave has historical, natural, archaeological and geological significance. Excavations revealed that this cave has been occupied by man for thousands of years, drawn by its constant stream flow and natural air conditioning.

Dunbar Cave is located 60 minutes northwest of Nashville and about one and a half miles northeast of downtown Clarksville, TN in Montgomery County. Dunbar Cave is the most prominent of several caves located in this designated natural area. In the roomy mouth of the cave, square dances, radio shows, and big band era concerts were once held.

Peace rally planned

 

bringthemhome.gifThe FreeThinkers for Peace and Civil Liberties will sponsor a Peace Vigil on Sunday, May 27, from noon to 4 p.m. at Patriot’s Park on Fort Campbell Bvld. in Clarksville.

This peaceful event will include a prayer service, spiritual readings, music, guest speakers, and a reading of the names of Kentucky and Tennessee soldiers killed in the Iraq conflict. The public is welcome to attend.

While many of us oppose the War in Iraq, we join with Americans on both sides of the debate in sharing the same concerns for the men and women on the front lines, our soldiers serving overseas and those about to be deployed. We support our troops (that message seems universal) but not the flawed policies and politicians that have immersed them in this escalating conflict.

As this Memorial Day approaches, fatalities in Iraq are escalating rapidly and another landmark number, 3500, is quickly approaching. That number does not include fatalities in Afghanistan, or the civilian death toll in either country. At home, many returning troops and their families face both physical and psychological difficulties from extended (and multiple) deployments. «Read the rest of this article»
