Blue Star Marker to be Dedicated In Whites Creek

Twilight Garden Club to Honor Armed Forces with Memorial at Fontanel

Free_Blue_StarWhites Creek, TN – On Saturday November 14, 2015 at 1:00 p.m., Twilight Garden Club of Whites Creek and Joelton is dedicating a Blue Star Memorial Marker to honor all Armed Forces (past, present and future) at Fontanel Mansion’s Grand Entrance.

The Blue Star Markers began to appear during World War II as a recognition of our Armed Forces. This program was started by the National Federation of Garden Clubs and continues today. The Twilight Garden Club, in that tradition, earlier this year decided to erect a Blue Star Marker here. TGC President Marie Coleman, the members, Fontanel Attractions and local donors made heroic strides to accomplish this Memorial.

Northwest Davidson County, especially the Whites Creek/Joelton area, has always had men and women who answered the call to serve their country in all of the Armed Services. Some paid the ultimate price for this service, many returned and reside here as our families, friends and neighbors. “As a community, we are proud and privileged to honor those who exemplify sacrifice and duty”, said Mrs. Coleman.

A Spooky Night for Hauntanel at Fontanel 2015

hauntanel_12-23_2Whites Creek, TN – (October 24, 2015) Last night’s 2015 The Dead Among Us Hauntanel debut was greeted by hundreds of ghoulish fans! Beginning with a family friendly hayride up to the Mansion at Fontanel with spooky action along the way, guests were able to Trick or Treat at the former home of Barbara Mandrell, and enjoy more zombie fun on the ride back.

Those who dared then walked the Zombie Themed Haunted Trail, which was not for the faint of heart! They worked their way thru the Zombie Circus tent of horror, sat a spell with Country Cannibals ..and prayed they did not get lost in the haunted woods as they stepped quietly thru the graveyard … keeping their eyes open in the Corn Field…..because they feared that THE DEAD ARE INDEED AMONG US!

Click here for tickets to tonight’s event from 7:00-11:00 PM, and tickets will be available at the event at the Hauntanel Booth outside our Stone House Shoppe.

Come early dressed for the occasion for a fabulous meal at Café Fontanella, have your photo made with the coffin as you await your destiny with the Dead Among Us! 4125 Whites Creek Pike, 615-725-1601.
