RBS Heritage Museum Crowd Funding

We are being so bold as to inform you of new fund raising that we (Vision 2020) are doing for the Red Boiling Springs Heritage Museum.  It has been suggested to us, numerous times by the "younger folks", that we should use crowd funding to jump start the restoration on the bank building that will eventually become the Heritage Museum.   So we have gone with and started a campaign for the brick work on the building.  This is an easy way to give.  You can donate as little as $5.00 AND you can make it a one time gift OR a monthly gift.  Funds are charged to your credit card/debit card. We have been saying all along that "none of us has a lot to give BUT all of us can give a little and thereby we can accomplish great things".  Crowd funding is an easy way for those of you who live far away to be a part of this project to preserve the story of Red Boiling Springs.   Here is the link: that will take you to our page.   Let me say thank you up front for considering making a monetary donation to this work.   Rita Watson, Vision 2020 Inc Red Boiling Springs, TN 37150. Vision 2020 Inc, is a 501c3 volunteer corporation. All funds raised go back into the programs, events and promotions that enhance life in Red Boiling Springs.



New Area Code Coming!
Middle Tennessee is getting a new area code.  Area code 615 is almost at capacity, and it will be joined by area code 629.  Please get in the habit now of writing your phone number with the area code.  Be sure your area code appears on your business cards, checks, signs, and other items.  In early 2015, it will be mandatory to dial a 10-digit phone number to make a local call.  It is important to note that all cities and towns in Middle Tennessee will have some phone numbers in area code 615 and some phone numbers in area code 629.  Theoretically, you could have a phone number of (615) 234-5678, and your neighbor across the street could have (629) 234-5678.  For more information, please see;

American Picker Meets Palace Pickers

Mike Wolfe of the popular History Channel favorite American Pickers was recently in Red Boiling Springs to visit his friend Mike Silvio, owner of Cyclemos. If anyone speculates that residents of long term care facilities may not stay abreast of current events, that was put to rest when Wolfe appeared at The Palace. Silvio’s wife, Jennifer is an RN and Staff Development Coordinator at The Palace and suggested the visit. What started out to be ‘drop in’ kind of visit turned into an extended photo op for residents and staff who recognized one of their favorite TV celebrities. “We’d hesitate to guess how many pictures were made of Mike with residents, patients, and teammates,” said Jayne Hinson, Activities Director. “Many of the folks here were ‘pickers’ long before Mike was born. They love the show and watch it without fail.”

"Simple Pleasures," a history of Red Boiling Springs during the resort era of the 20s and 30s, is available from Vision 2020.  All funds raised from this sale go to the Red Boiling Springs Heritage Museum Fund.  The price is $8 and may be purchased at Macon Bank and Trust RBS and Main Lafayette branches, The Armour Hotel and Grandpa's House.
