The week ahead: Fish, farming, and vaudeville

There’s a lot going on this week, including fresh Atlantic fish, some District 33 meetings, and quite a few more activities in the area, so let’s dive right in.

First, don’t forget to head over to Southeast Farmer’s Market. Held Monday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Southeast Park, next to the Library, about a dozen vendors are expected this Saturday. This includes a new vendor – Fresh Fish, Inc., featuring fresh, wild-caught Atlantic seafood. There will also be cheesecakes, fresh produce, handmade pastas and sauces, homemade soups, fresh meat and eggs, breads, seasonings, beans, jams, jellies, bath products, canned goods, skin care, and the list just goes on and on.

Don’t forget Antioch, this is our Farmer’s market so head out and be supportive.

A series of meetings will be hosted by District 33 Council Member Sam Coleman, and two will be held over the coming week. They are:

  • Antioch Community – July 26, Mt. View Elementary, 3820 Murfreesboro Road.
  • Priest Lake Community – July 28, Smith Springs Elementary School, 3132 Smith Springs Road.

Two more meetings are scheduled for August.

There are also some great events at the Library, but two caught our eye. One is Saturday at 10:30 and is Jack and Kitty’s Vaudeville Show for Kids. Presented by Emmy Award winners, this show has been described a “Beyonce meets Leon Redbone or Alicia Keys meets Tom Waits.” It’ll last about an hour.

At 2 p.m. Saturday, Ronald McDonald will be at the library for about an hour for an interactive show filled with magic and fun.

I know it is a little ways down the road, but if you are a business owner, this seminar on business taxes at MTSU might be something to consider. It is scheduled for Thursday.

Early voting is underway. This story has the details. Make sure to take some time to cast your ballot.

Finally, don’t forget that the coming weekend is the Sales Tax Holiday, and a variety of clothing, school supplies and even some computers may be purchased from 12:01 a.m. July 29 through 11:59 p.m. on July 31. More details are available at this link.
