TULLAHOMA, TENN. -- The AEDC Woman’s Club will begin their new club season Sept. 7 at the Arnold Lakeside Center and the guest speaker will be Jimmy Gentry.

Gentry was one of nine children who grew up in Williamson County during the Depression. He was a noted high school athlete, and at age 18 he went to war. He was awarded two Bronze Stars for his actions during the invasion of Germany, and he was among the first allied troops to enter Dachau, the infamous Nazi death camp.

Gentry returned to Franklin and became one of Williamson County’s most widely-known citizens, serving as a teacher and a coach for over 50 years. He has since become a popular author and artist.

Table donations at the September meeting will go to Motlow Ladies Philanthropic Society.

The social hour of the meeting starts at 9:30 a.m., with the business meeting and program beginning at 10 a.m.

Reservations must be made no later than noon Aug. 31 and are required to gain access to the ALC. Make reservations by calling (931) 393-2552 or (931) 636-4152.
