June 2013 Community Events

June 11. Meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA). This month’s agenda includes an update regarding the renovation of the Watervalley Lake Bandstand, a discussion about the installation of speed bumps on Hasty Street, and a continued discussion about an ordinance regarding the use of bathroom porcelain as yard art. The motion was tabled due to the heated discussion from last month.

Tea June 12. The Society Book Club Meeting.  This month the SBC will be reviewing Margaret Thatcher: The Authorised Biography, by Charles Moore. Tiny Loftin will lead the review discussion and the meeting will be held at the home of Camilla Tindale. In keeping with the theme of the book, the meeting time has been moved to 2:00 in order for the ladies to enjoy high tea rather than a light luncheon. Camilla has noted that she will be “decorating the house to a British theme with Etonian banners and Union Jacks.” (Like anybody cares.)

On a similar note, the Three Sisters Beauty Salon is offering a $10.00 dollar discount during the entire month of June for anybody wanting to have their hair done like Margaret Thatcher.

June 15. Watervalley Line Dance and Bingo Club. The monthly gathering of the LD&BC will be at the Memorial Building starting at 6:30. This month the Dog Creek Howlers are the main event playing a great variety of Blue Grass. The lead howler, Lester Crump, will be dressed like Snoop Dog since he lost a bet when the Lady Vols softball team finished second in the National Championship. You won’t want to miss this.
