Due to COVID-19, the Cannon County Good Ole Days festival has been postponed to May 14 & 15, 2021.
The Cannon County Senior Center Board of Directors and Cannon County Good Ole Days Committee made the decision to postpone Cannon County Good Ole Days until May 14-15, 2021, following Tennessee Governor Bill Lee's Executive Order No. 50, which extends the State of Emergency related to COVID-19 pandemic to August 29, 2020. The order urges Tennesseans to limit activity, stay home when possible, and limits social and recreational gatherings of 50 or more persons unless adequate social distancing can be maintained. Cannon County Good Ole Days originally scheduled on May 15-16, 2020, was rescheduled for August 28-29, 2020. The decision to postpone the event until 2021 was difficult, as Cannon County Good Ole Days is the largest fundraiser for the Cannon County Senior Center, and an annual community tradition. However, protecting and safeguarding Cannon County citizens, and particularly vulnerable populations, is considered priority. Planning for the 2021 festival will begin soon!
Meanwhile, the Cannon County Senior Center Board of Directors will be hosting a live ONLINE auction, a virtual fundraiser, On Monday August 17th, 2020. Please join this exciting event, as it will be a fun and safe way to interact with others while supporting the Cannon County Senior Center.
For additional information, please contact the Cannon County Senior Center at 615-563-5304 or go the the Cannon County Senior Center Facebook page.
The Center will be closed until August 29, 2020 he

From the Director: Happy Independence Day! Whether you celebrate our nation’s independence with fireworks at Dillon Park, friends at the Lions Club Horseshow, on a boat at the lake, at a picnic in the park, or with family members at home...even with the chaos and uncertainty all around, please remember that we still live in the greatest country in the world! Many thanks to all those who sacrificed for our freedoms! Although we have not been open to the public at the Center, Sue Springer is still leading exercise! Meet her in the mornings, 6 days a week, at Dillon Park for the “Walking With Ease” Walking Club. “Walking With Ease” is an evidenced-based health promotion/disease prevention program. It has been proven successful in aging adults with arthritis and other chronic conditions. Even if you do not experience a chronic condition, walking helps with balance and coordination, maintaining healthy weight, strengthening bones and muscles, and improving mood. Meeting with friends and seeing smiling faces, even while social distancing, can elevate your mood. Be sure to protect yourself from the heat and sun by wearing sunscreen, a hat/cap, and drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. Enjoy your summer! Please know that we are in anticipation of reopening the Senior Center soon. Although we do not know the date, we do know there are guidelines we will be required to follow for the safety and protection of everyone. The Tennessee Commission on Aging has provided reopening guidance. Please be patient and understanding with the process, and know there will be changes ahead. Like myself, you may not enjoy change or adjust well to it. But, one thing we can be assured of in life is, whether we like it or not...things change! I want to thank our Board of Directors for their time and dedication to the Senior Center during these past 4 months. Congrats to Board Member, Mitzi Brandon, who will be serving on the UCDD/AAAD Advisory Board in Cookeville. She will represent us well! Congratulations also to my parents who will celebrate their 60th Anniversary on July 15th! Deborah R. Leach, Director
