Our Woodland-in-Waverly neighborhood never got a notice to put in the newsletter. We publish a neighborhood list and a District 17 list and we've never gotten a notice for those either. Our Councilman told us about one five years ago in our District that we went to, and we heard about one up in Madison that we went to a couple years ago. Subsequently we heard about one in West Nashville and the one Mike mentioned recently at the John Henry Hale homes. That's it; we've known about four. I thought they were random events publicized exclusively through the Council members and that they did not want the whole city to feel invited. We had a big crowd at the one in Dist. 17 that we promoted on our newsgroup and a lot of other promoted it too in other ways, but in Madison it was more officials than citizens.Doesn't it defeat the purpose of a Mayor's Night Out for Nashvillians not to publicize it to many Nashvillians?
