Unity Day last Weekend United the City of Clarksville for At Least One Day

 

Clarksville Unity DayClarksville, TN – On Saturday Hilldale Baptist Church played host to third annual Unity Day celebration. The goal of Unity Day is to build a stronger community by recognizing and joining together religious, governmental and business leaders in fellowship.

Unity Day was founded by Treva Gordon, the owner and publisher of the Convenient Shopper Magazine. “I was watching an awards show on television and I was so inspired by the way they honored the pop star’s and the rap artists. It was wonderful; they had the gift bags, bling bling, the limos, and everything that went with it. That was awesome!” she said to herself.

Clarksville, TN – I am not a runner.  I am barely a walker, but I have many friends who enjoy running.  My daughter has taken an interest in running and I could not be more proud.  The “Go Commando” half marathon this past weekend proves that this event is poised to be one of the best in the country.

The Clarksville Convention and Visitors Bureau took over managing this event after the previous organizer proved to be, how shall I put it, “unpopular”.  I was not that close to the race when it first started, but I kept hearing things that weren’t good. 

When that promoter tried to bring the race back to Clarksville, local sponsors and organizers were not willing to work with them.  The CVB wouldn’t have anything to do with them either, and the race looked like it had no future here.  That is where the good people of Clarksville come in. «Read the rest of this article»

Kim McMillan for Mayor of Clarksville TN“Clarksville and Fort Campbell form a great team and we’re honored by the trust placed in us by the United States Army to serve as a host city of one of the world’s most important military installations. Clarksville understands that it really is a trust, a relationship of honor, as we provide a community of support for the men and women who daily secure our great freedoms with their lives and with the sacrifices of their families,” said Mayoral Candidate Kim McMillan. “As Mayor, I’ll work hard for and with Fort Campbell. You can count on it.”

Perhaps no one understands the unique relationship between Clarksville and Fort Campbell like Colonel Ted Crozier (USA Retired), former Chief of Staff at Fort Campbell and former Mayor of Clarksville. Colonel Crozier said, “Kim McMillan has already been fighting for Fort Campbell on the front lines for years in her many leadership roles. She’s made phone calls, hosted meetings, and even made trips to Washington, D.C. on our behalf – doing what Kim does best, getting things done. I love Fort Campbell and I love Clarksville, and I know we can count on Kim to do well by both of them.” «Read the rest of this article»
