Episode #6 Stella Reed Patterson - Teaching Artist!

August 30, 2015

On today’s show I am privileged to be speaking with Teaching Artist Stella Reed Patterson. Stella is a professional actor, director and educator who created Stories with Stella a class for pre-schoolers that puts to use Stella’s theatre skills and her original music.
Stella is here in Nashville at a great time as our very own Metro Parks Department teams up with the Boys and Girls Club of Middle Tennessee. This partnership has a bright future for nurturing and teaching excellence to our young people.

And don’t forget about your chance to meet Stella in person this Tuesday September 1st at 4:00pm at the Cleveland Community Center. Papa John’s will be there serving up hot pizza to the first 100 kids who show up!

And a special thanks to our sponsor Moonshine Cowboy Boot Wax, the Original, All Natural, non-toxic boot wax with a scent of orange. The Nashville Wax Company is now offering Moonshine Biker Boot Wax – yes the same high quality boot wax now available in black. To order a tin of your very own, just go to MoonshineBootwax.com. Buy it there online or check out the growing list of local retailers in and around Nashville who carry these fine boot wax products.

And remember neighbors every Wednesday until the end of October is the East Nashville Farmer’s Market in Shelby Park!
