Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan speaks about her Economic Development and Cultural Exchange trip to Saudi Arabia

 

City of ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – A few weeks ago, I was extremely honored to be asked to represent Clarksville on an economic development and cultural exchange trip to Saudi Arabia. The trip was organized by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and was fully funded by the Saudi Arabian government.

It was not funded by the taxpayers in any way. This is the fifth year that select U.S. mayors have been invited to Saudi Arabia. I was so pleased that Clarksville was selected as one of the represented cities because I believe it shows that our reputation as a growing and vibrant city is being recognized around the country and now around the world. «Read the rest of this article»

The third day of Rivers and Spires dawned clear and sunny. As the day rolled by, the clouds rolled in. Luckily the rain held off for most of the evening as was expected. However just before the 9:00 p.m. John Michael Montgomery concert festival goers suffered through a sudden downpour.

The Clarksville Online crew arrived between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., and promptly divided our efforts. Our videographer Mark Haynes went off to record the acts at the Strawberry Alley Stage with his high definition video camera. Reporter Turner McCullough Jr. disappeared in the direction of the International Streetfest, while I meandered throughout capturing images of people enjoying the festivities.

Around 11:30 we gathered together to watch the MCES Honor Choir perform. Their performance was an auditory treat. It was clear that the students had put a lot of work towards preparing for this performance, and their efforts paid off.
