Phil Bredesen’s campaign rally was well attended yesterday by local citizens at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant. This is an excellent candidate for the U. S. Senate so it was necessary to attend the event. I don’t go to many political rallies, but do so when I really like the candidate. Here is what I saw at the event.
First, Melinda and I ran into some dear friends, Steve and Liz Petty.
The Applewood Farmhouse was ready for the Bredesen visit.
A line formed to sign in and enter the rally inside the restaurant.
I signed in and was ready to meet the former governor. He is my choice for U.S. Senate.
Excitement was evident as Bredesen entered the room. He entered quietly from another part of the restaurant so it took a minute to realize that he was there.
Bredesen was introduced to the crowd as his wife stands to the left.
Phil Bredesen spoke about his retirement and decision to run for U.S. Senate. The crowd was glad he decided to come out of retirement.
Melinda enjoyed a moment with the candidate. I enjoyed my moment as well!
A handshake with retired teacher, Dale Gilmore. We always enjoy seeing Dale!
I didn’t realize that this was a casual dinner event so it was nice to try the AppleWood Farmhouse restaurant chili—and it was fabulous! A little spicy, but enough to make it good. There were tiny cornbread ‘crackers’ to dunk in the bowl as well. You must try this the next time you are at the AppleWood Farmhouse! Smokymountainfoodie approves.
Everyone is encouraged to vote in November. This is the best vote for U.S. Senate.
