For the past two years, the Crossings Nashville Action Partnership has sponsored the event, which was held in Antioch. However, in talking with organization officials, they told me the expenses involved, as well as the time commitment and number of volunteers required has made the event too prohibitive to host.

Alma Sanford, the president of CNAP, said on the AntiochTenn.com Facebook page, ” So sorry that CNAP could not again sponsor. It was a lot of fun to work with the children and the wonderful volunteers who helped put it on in 2014 and 2015. However, it is a very time consuming project and one we just didn’t have the necessary number of people who had the time to contribute to continue as volunteers/ fundraisers/ donors.”
