Braydon's Birthday Bash
Car, Truck, & Bike Show / Benefit Auction

Snow White Drive In • 1714 W Main Street • Lebanon, TN

Join us for Braydon's Birthday Bash, a Car, Truck & Bike Show along with a Benefit Auction at Snow White Drive In on October 17th, 2015.

Braydon Brown is only 2 1/2 years old and suffers from severe eczema and a rare form of Job Disease where he has reoccurring skin infections. There are days that Braydon looks like a burn victim and suffers in pain like a cancer patient. We have been told that we need to seek out of state help because no one specializes in his disease. The National Jewish Hospital in Denver, CO has a therapy program to help get him relief and can teach us how to control his flares and get him the comfort he deserves.

Insurance covers none of the expenses for the treatment he needs. We are raising funds to help him get the help he needs. We know the cost will be $26,000.00. God has a plan for him.

If you have an item to donate, please let us know as we would appreciate so much for the fundraiser. You can reach us through email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Current goal is $14,000! 50/50 Drawing, D&D Entertainment, Trophies, Specialty Trophies, Sausage Biscuits and Coffee from 9AM to 10:30AM, Silent Auction and much more!

We are very grateful for all the outpouring of support. We hope to see you there!

Thank You.

2015 07 21 3
On Tuesday, July 21st, 2015, there will be a Clean Tennessee Energy Grant Check Presentation to the City of Lebanon for $250,000 at 11:00AM.
 
2015 07 31 1

TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau, Kathy Glapa, Office of Sustainable Practices (she helped with the grant), Lori Munkeboe also from the Office of Sustainable Practices, Assistant to the Commissioner David Owenby, Reggie Mudd, Nashville Regional Rep for Economic and Community Development, and PHG representatives will be in attendance.

Governor Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Bob Martineau awarded more than $3.1 million to fund energy efficiency projects for local governments and municipalities, utilities and state entities across Tennessee. The City of Lebanon was awarded $250,000 for a biomass gasification project. The City of Lebanon is planning to implement a waste-to-energy biomass gasification project at their Wastewater Treatment Plant. The project will utilize existing wood waste, wastewater treatment plant sludge, and the discarded tires as fuel, to produce renewable energy. The entity is expecting to save $341,180 annually, or $8.5 million during its 25-year operating life. Additionally, these cost savings will be noticed through avoided transportation costs for disposal. Overall emissions reductions include: 2,717 tons of carbon dioxide, 9,809 pounds of sulfur dioxide, and 3,719 pounds of nitrous oxide. In addition to the reductions in emissions, the gasification system will generate 748,880 kWh.

Project supporters include: LoJac, Nutro, Wilson County, and Bane and Associates.
