On June 11, 2016 Hensley Airpark located in Chuckey, Tennessee invited locals and anyone interested to come to the private airstrip for an entertaining afternoon. The Wings & Wheels Fly-In event drew in a crowd. Airplanes landed one by one on the airstrip and were parked neatly in the grass fields. Friendly pilots were more than willing to give visitors information regarding their airplanes and their motivations behind such an investment. Mazda Miata's rolled in on their four wheels and caught the eyes of all those who attended the event. Hensley Airpark is a flying community that comes complete with a private airstrip and grass landing strip. All homeowners are required to be private pilots.

Davy Crockett Region of the Antique Automobile Car Club of America and Food City in Greeneville, Tennessee hosted its fourth annual antique car show. The people who entered their cars in the auto show each paid a fee of $10, but the sights and sounds were free to the public. The money that was raised between the hours of 9:00am- 3:00pm was then donated to various organizations in need throughout Greene County. The community came together for the enjoyment of old cars and good times with family and friends. People could be overheard reminiscing over specific car models that brought back old memories. Children were anxious to ask questions and drag parents from one car to the next. All viewers of the auto show were encouraged to place a ballot on their favorite muscle and classic cars. There were also automobiles that were up for sale and business opportunities for people who specialize in fixing and maintaining antique vehicles. The next car show will be announced in the Greeneville Sun. All classic car owners and car lovers are encouraged to attend. This community event hopes to continue over the next several years, but is not possible without the public’s interest and participation.

    According to the ASPCA 2.7 million is the number of animals euthanized every year. The Washington County, Tennessee Humane Society hosted a fundraiser and adoption at Yee-Haw Brewing Company in hopes of raising awareness to the public about the financial needs of the organization. There were dogs and puppies located on the site that were up for adoption to a forever home. Yee-Haw Brewing Co. granted a dollar to the Humane Society for every pint of beer sold within the hours of 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. According to Young-Williams Animal Center in 2015 Tennessee alone had 5,524 adoptions and 4,330 pets that were euthanized. Organizations such as the humane society in Washington County are avid about teaching the importance of adopting pets and the need for spaying and neutering animals. Volunteers and workers are taught how to seek out the homes best fit for animals that are adopted. The Washington County Humane Society will continue to promote adoptions and set up on location at the Yee-Haw Brewery on the first Thursday of every month. Yee-Haw plans to continue contributing to the benefit through the purchase of pints of beer. People are encouraged to bring their own adopted pets to the fundraiser.
