Tuesday, April 30, 2013

On April 17,  McKendree Village  commemorated 50 years of service to the Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, Donelson and Middle Tennessee communities with  a celebration event featuring a rededication of the organization’s  mission as well as a  special closing benediction written by the  campus chaplain.   It is the  first event that  marks the start of  a  year long celebration of the organization’s heritage of caring. Quality service, strong foundations, active lifestyle and bright future, are just a few of the reflections celebrated during the ceremony.  

Joining in the anniversary celebration were many dignitaries and community leaders, including Mayor Karl Dean from Metropolitan Nashville/Davidson County and Congressman Jim Cooper. Also of  importance were representatives from the McKendree Village Resident Association whose quality living on the local retirement campus has spanned from less than one, to over thirty years! 

McKendree Manor was established in April of 1963 by the Tennessee Conference for the Methodist Church. The 30 acre campus on Lebanon Road was purchased to establish a home for older adults within the conference. Fifty years later that tradition continues at the site of the original Manor, which is now McKendree Village, offering active living and caring for senior adults with varying needs, in a faith affirming community. Home options include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Health Care, and Rehabilitation. Residents of the McKendree Village campus  benefit from a thriving and vibrant chaplaincy program, activities and services to meet the needs of residents wherever they are in life’s journey, and supportive and caring staff  who are available to share a love of people and commitment to servant leadership. There are also many volunteer programs and opportunities for community involvement.

Serving all of Middle Tennessee with particular focus on the Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, and Donelson communities, residents at McKendree Village will discover themselves immediately finding home, friends and family within a safe and secure environment. During the anniversary celebration many residents shared that they could not imagine their life without the quality services, friends, and new family in the place they now call home. A commemorative History Wall  was unveiled and is available for the public to enjoy viewing. The display  features  many noteworthy events and accomplishments of the organization over the past decades and pays homage to the rich heritage of excellence and service  from 1963 until present.  Additionally, exciting plans for new construction and renovations to be accomplished in the future were revealed during the week’s celebration. 

The anniversary event launched  a series of  special events that will be offered throughout the year to mark this momentous occasion for all of Middle Tennessee. The Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, and Donelson communities are invited to visit the campus and share in the excitement of McKendree Village, which is and will continue to be “The Heart of Hermitage”.

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Quick-casual BBQ chain, Bar-B-Cutie, releases today the projected opening of its newest store at 2037 North Mt. Juliet Road in downtown Mt. Juliet. 

Bar-B-Cutie, which began serving Nashville in 1950, is excited to share Mt. Juliet’s legacy of tradition, family values and unity. 

“Because Bar-B-Cutie has the same core values as the City of Mt. Juliet, I feel we are a perfect fit to the community,” comments Brett McFarland, COO Bar-B-Cutie Franchise Systems.

In an effort to celebrate and authenticate Bar-B-Cutie’s deep roots, Jim Anderson, Mt. Juliet’s owner, and Ronnie McFarland, CEO Bar-B-Cutie Franchise Systems, have added a few special touches to this new location. 

In this location, you’ll sit in “family grown” tables and chairs. The tables and chairs have been hand-made by the same family that cut and grew the wood. 

This location will bring back a menu item, the Original Treat Sandwich (now called the “Cutie Club”), that has not been served since the original Bar-B-Cutie on Murfreesboro Road relocated to Nolensville Road in 1979. Another uniqueoffering this location will bare is iced-down bottled Coca-Cola.

The Mt. Juliet Bar-B-Cutie will truly be the best of all worlds serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

“We are combining the traditional BBQ favorites such as hickory-smoked barbecue, baby back ribs & half chicken (boasting the memo “cooked and served daily until we run out”) with new “customer requested” favorites such as fried pickles, BBQ Pork Nachos and a Burger Experience,” says Ronnie McFarland. 

Breakfast at Bar-B-Cutie will also center on traditional favorites that are cooked to order such as sweet potato pancakes, eggs cooked just the way you like them and omelets with all the stuffings (tomatoes, onions, black & green olives, mushrooms, jalapenos) at no additional charge.

This is the first Bar-B-Cutie store for owner/operator, Jim Anderson. 

Mr. Anderson commented, “We’re very excited about bringing the Bar-B-Cutie experience to downtown Mt. Juliet next Wednesday, May 3, 2013! We are also thrilled about being a good neighbor to our community. I believe our menu offers a little something for everyone and our goal is to serve up great food at a fair price with smiling faces.”
