AH! Readyville!
Thursday, October 16, 6:30
at Goodness Gracious
That's the sentiment that until recently was painted on the side of the old Holmes Service Station in the heart of Readyville, now owned by Nora and Dave Robinson, a sentiment that is shared by all of those so fortunate as to call Readyville home.
Its natural beauty is appreciated at a distance daily by the thousands of drivers who traverse the John Bragg Highway which runs just over a mile to the south. But the vast majority of them are totally unaware of the prominent place Readyville's founder, Charles Ready, and his descendaents have played in county, state, and national affairs.
Such will be the topic as Boyd Barker, himself a direct descendent of Mary and Charles Ready, discusses the beautiful place he calls home, and the contributions of its founder and several Ready descendents. Civil War generals, a son who was a U. S. Representative, and a granddaughter who was the envy of the social elite in Washington, DC are just a few of the individuals who will be discussed who have a direct connection to Charles Ready and his Readyville.
Gathering time is 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 16. The presentation begins at 7:00 p.m. at Goodness Gracious at the Readyville Mill, 5418 Murfreesboro Road, in Readyville. RSVP by October 10. Seating is limited so call 615-409-6009 or 615-563-8088 or See ad in this week's Cannon Courier.
