Executive Director of Keep Tennessee Beautiful Visits Tullahoma
Thursday afternoon she spoke to attendees at the monthly Planning and Coordinating Committee, visited the four elementary schools, was interviewed for a 30 minute program on Lighttube, and toured the Tullahoma Recycling Center.
During the school visits she introduced to the students the new book Nancy and Sluggo Love Tennessee. Mayor and Mrs. Curlee purchased a copy of the book for each of the four elementary schools, plus Lannom Memorial Library. The book, sponsored by Keep Tennessee Beautiful, tells the story of cartoon characters Nancy and Sluggo and their fun-filled adventure across Tennessee. Along the way, they help to clean up the water, land and air while meeting some wonderful, funny and wise new animal friends.
The book was written and illustrated by Nashville resident and noted cartoonist Jim Gilchrist, who has drawn not only the Nancy comic strip but also Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Muppets and the Pink Panther.
“Evelyn and I were pleased to purchase these books for the elementary school students and our public library. It tells a great story for students about keeping Tennessee beautiful,” said Curlee. “It ties in perfectly with our community effort to make Tullahoma even more clean and attractive. I am convinced 99% of Tullahoma citizens want to live in a clean and attractive community and 100% of the people who want to invest in Tullahoma want to invest in a clean and attractive community.”
“I appreciate Ms. Marshall visiting Tullahoma and helping spread the word about ways to Keep Tennessee and Tullahoma Beautiful.”
