Everyone is invited to join Lake Commission member Levonn Hubbard on Tuesday, September 8th to take a guided hike of the new Soldier’s Beach Trail at Meadow Park Lake. This new trail was named after the World War II German prisoners who would be escorted to the lake where they would bathe. The trail passes by the area the prisoners used. Everyone is invited to meet for the 8:00 a.m. hike at the trail head parking lot on City Lake Road. For more information, contact the Park Office at 931-788-2034. Soldier’s Beach Trail will also be included in the September 2015 Hiking Trail Marathon. Nine (9) trails in Fairfield Glade/Cumberland County have been identified to make up 26.2 miles. Participants will have the entire month of September to complete either a 13.1 (half-marathon) or the full 26.2 (full-marathon). This is not a race but rather a “go at your own pace” fun event. You must register for this free event. For more information go to time2meet.com/marathon
The Memphis City Council has voted to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest from a public park. Council members voted 11-1 Tuesday to remove the statue of the rebel general, slave trader and early Ku Klux Klan member from Health Sciences Park. However, it could be as late as October before the statue is removed because the Memphis City Council may require approval from the Tennessee Historical Commission before they take it out of the park.
