“Two Rivers will forever be linked with Rhea (ray) County, Tennessee!” Lester Public Library Director, Jeff Dawson, tells us last fall he was asked to assist with a reading project in partnership with a high school in the eastern part of the ‘volunteer’ state. Dawson explains students ‘read’ their way from Evensville (evans-ville) to Two Rivers.
Of course, Two Rivers is the officially-recognized ‘home of the ice cream sundae’ and the Tennessee school ‘wanted a food destination’, so TR was contacted for the literacy project. Dawson was “then invited to the school to be part of the party.”
Jeff (Dawson) says more than 15-hundred…ice cream sundae’s were served in less than an hour…and, he paid tribute to their ‘southern hospitality.’
