Charles W. Bone Honored at Salvus Center Dinner in Hendersonville

On April 6, Charles W. Bone was honored at the 2019 “Seed to Harvest” Spring Celebration for the Salvus Center, Inc. a faith-based primary care health center in Gallatin, Tennessee. Salvus seeks to reclaim the Biblical and historical commitment to care for poor and underprivileged patients so they can experience wholeness, wellness and healing. Joined by more than 300 guests, the annual event celebrated the volunteers and donors who have supported the center since its opening in 2006. All proceeds benefitted the center’s programs and future patients. Tennessee State Representative and Bone McAllester Norton attorney Johnny Garrett and his wife Kara Garrett served as event chairs.  

In 2004, Bone was among the group of community leaders who founded Salvus Center to address the health care concerns for people who work and support their families but cannot afford health care and do not qualify for TennCare. After much planning and meeting, the Salvus Center started seeing patients in 2006 with the vision that every citizen in Sumner County would have access to affordable health care. Over the years, the center has served more than 62,000 patients.

Bone was introduced as the Honored Guest of the 2019 Spring Celebration Dinner by his daughter, Baylor Bone Swindell, who shared how her grandparents Nokes and Billy Bone established the family’s tradition of giving back to others in Sumner County.

Law firm seeks help for our neighbors

Posted in Gallatin News

The responsibilities we all share as Americans and as good citizens within our respective communities are important.

As we approach the upcoming holiday season, we, as a law firm, are reminded of how fortunate we are to live and work in this great county. However, despite our county's excellent reputation as one of the state's foremost marketplaces, its wealth, and its acclaimed growth, we still have those within our community who are in need.

We have many who are out of work, who have families to feed, or who may be elderly and simply do not have the resources to adequately provide food for themselves or their families.

We believe we have a responsibility to help our neighbors, who perhaps have not been as fortunate as we. To answer these calls for help within our community our law firm is initiating a campaign to facilitate the replenishing of local food bank shelves.

In the coming weeks our law firm plans to make an all-out effort through a special awareness campaign to encourage our citizenry to join with us in making contributions of cans of food and other nonperishable items to area churches and charities.

We want to ask you to help us with this very special project. This effort is about serving our community and coming to the aid of our neighbors.

We are also reminded at this time of year of how fortunate we are to be citizens of this great country. In just a few days we each will have the opportunity to perform one of our civic duties when we are asked to go to the polls and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

We each plan to vote as do the other attorneys in our office and members of our staff. If you haven't already voted, we encourage you to do so. To vote is one of the most sacred privileges afforded by our great democracy. And it's the right thing to do.

Please join us in serving our community and helping our neighbors by donating cans of food to local churches and charities. To us it's much like voting. It's the right thing to do.

Attorney Johnny Garrett Invites Vanderbilt's Baseball Coach to Little League World Series

Nashville's City Paper
By Jerome Boettcher

Tim Corbin wasn’t too old for this moment.
Attending the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., always had been on his baseball bucket list. On Sunday, the giddy 51-year-old boarded a private jet and fulfilled that dream.

Vanderbilt's baseball coach couldn’t pass up an opportunity to cheer on Nashville’s “hometown” team and was in the stands to watch the Goodlettsville All-Stars knock off Petaluma, Calif., in an exciting second-round game.

“It was better in person than it is on TV. I can say that with certainty,” Corbin said on Monday, back at Vanderbilt and preparing for the Commodores’ first team meeting. “It kind of reveals every aspect of youth baseball that you can possibly see from the emotion to the winning and losing and the fans and the parents. It is really neat. It is the elite deal. It is the thing happening right now. I think it is great for the community.”

Corbin left Nashville at 7 a.m. Sunday and was back by 9 p.m. that same day, turning a 1,500-mile (roundtrip) adventure into a very long day trip. He joined Johnny Garrett, Ray Knotts and Brian Hayes, parents and coaches of Goodlettsville’s 8- and 9-year-old team who extended Corbin an offer to join them and their children on the trip.
