The City of Nashville lent its support to several different events and organizations at their second meeting for February held on Thursday, Feb. 19.

The council first heard from Carolyn Detering who helps to put on the Walk With the Dogs against Pancreatic Cancer.

This will be the tenth year this event is held. The Walk will be on June 6 at 8 a.m. in Memorial Park. The council agreed that the city would help provide police presence and would close off streets around the route, same as in previous years.

Tom McFeron spoke on behalf of the Washington County Sportsman Club, who will be holding their 42nd annual kids fishing derby on May 3, also at Memorial Park.

The council agreed to donate $350 to the Club for the event, same as last year, and also agreed to stock the lake shortly before the event and to have a police presence in the area.

The council voted to donate $250 to the Nashville Educational Support Team, which will go towards the sponsorship of Post-Prom activities.

The City will be putting another $250 towards the NCHS Music Boosters Patron Program, which will put the city’s name on the side of the new trailer the boosters acquired for the band.

“I think it’s a worthwhile project,” said Mayor Ray Kolweier. “The Band promotes the city where ever they go.”
