Residents in Metropolitan Nashville’s 18th District will celebrate on Nov. 18 longtime successful efforts to preserve and revitalize the area’s urban neighborhoods. The “Celebrate the 18th on the 18th” event is also designed to thank outgoing council member Ginger Pepper Hausser for her eight years of service and to welcome the newly elected Keith Durbin. In addition, the program will feature a Taste of the 18th District, with samples from some of the district’s independently owned restaurants, and activities and entertainment for children, including the Metro Parks Kids Jam Band, face painters and jugglers. Residents are encouraged to bring photographs of their favorite places and memories for an interactive, giant timeline of district happenings and history (photographs will be scanned and returned). For more information, call the Vanderbilt Community, Neighborhood and Government Relations office at 322-7311.
