New Spring Hill Recreation Center to open soon

The Williamson County Parks & Recreation Department is pleased to announce the dedication, open house and ongoing programming activities for Longview Recreation Center in Spring Hill. The public is invited to the dedication ceremony of this new facility at 10 a.m. April 12. Public tours will follow from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
As I look and read through the many activities offered, which happen to be too many to put in this column, I encourage you to go by or call 790-5719 if you have specific questions. I have driven by and looked, and we all should be really thrilled and proud to have such a nice-looking facility for our use. It looks very impressive to me from the outside.
Williamson Recycles and Keep Williamson Beautiful have many environmental events planned for the spring. The first event will take place April 26. This will be Shred Day — free shredding of important documents that could be used for identity theft. This event will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 420 Century Court in Franklin. They will also be accepting cell phones and rechargeable batteries for recycling. For more information, please call 790-5848.
I received the following information past my deadline but wanted to share with you that nationally acclaimed home organization expert Monica Ricci teamed up with Beazer Homes recently to apply her extensive experience as a consultant with HGTV. She was in Spring Hill on Tuesday and held a free home organization open-house event for the public to see firsthand the new SmartDesign options. I hope many of you were able to attend this event.
Looks like another subdivision for Thompson's Station was on the agenda this week for the commissioners to review. I am not sure at this writing exactly where the property to be divided is located, but will try to let you know more in the next column. It will apparently contain 252 lots on 226.69 acres at or near 1780 Dean Road. You may visit the town Web site at www.thompsons-station.com for more information.
Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the family of District Attorney General Ron Davis. I know he had fought an earnest, hard battle with cancer, but it was just not for him to win. He has left a legacy among many people.
