We’ve made it through another long, cold winter!  Time to mark your calendars, pack up your gear, and come out with your fellow “Nuts”, both old and new members, to paint the ever beautiful Cheekwood Mansion, and it’s surrounding landscape!

Choose one, or attend all three!

April 29, 2016 – 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

May 31, 2016 – 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

September 2, 2016 – 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

When you drive up to the gate, just tell the keeper that you’re a Chestnut Member and entry is FREE.  (You will need to wear a Chestnut shirt, cap, or pin if you have them.  Rachel has the buttons – 615-504-7201)  Here’s our link if you’d like to purchase a cap or T-shirt for these events! 

At 9:30, Someone will be in the first parking lot past the entrance to greet you, and give you a name tag.  (no worries if you arrive late, we’ll find you!) 

At 12:30 – Bring a bagged lunch, or we’ll pre-order a boxed lunch for you from the pineapple room.
