We will be having a “Gathering of Friends” to celebrate and commemorate the life of Barbara “Bratt” Andrews, our beloved friend and President. Bratt did not like funerals or memorial services so this will just be a time to get together and remember a life well lived. Carol will be bringing several of Bratt’s paintings for viewing. Light refreshments served. Time 2:00 – 4:00.  Date: Saturday, June 3rd.
Place – Generations of Grace, 1633 W. Main Street #1100, Lebanon, TN 37087. The church is located right off of Lebanon Road (Main Street) in a strip center behind Dunkin Donuts/Firestone. If you get off of I-40 East at the Gallatin or Highway 109 exit you turn left off of the interstate and follow until you see the turnoff for Lebanon Road towards Lebanon (Lebanon Road crosses over Highway 109). Go approximately 4 miles or so – go through two traffic lights and then turn left in between Dunkin Donuts and Firestone – church is all the way in the back of strip center. If you come on down to Hartmann Drive on I-40 you would again turn left off of the interstate and follow down to Main Street. Turn right and go approx. 1 ½ miles – Firestone on right. Turn immediately right after Firestone. Hope this information is helpful.
