Eddie Poole: Hey, everybody. We lost somebody that was really important to Mount Juliet this year, Charlie Daniels. And we wanted to find a way to honor Charlie. I’m Eddie Poole with Keller Williams Realty. I’m here with Judd Sellars of Sellars Funeral Home. Judd, appreciate you hanging out with us. We’ve got an event coming up, right?
Judd Sellars: We do. It’s going to be called the Charlie Daniels Honoring our Heroes, October 17th at The Circle P Ranch there on west Division. The festivities are going to kick off around 1:00. It’d be from one to four, but we’ll have a patriotic service starting at 2:00.
Eddie Poole: Sounds exactly what Charlie stood for. Honoring our heroes and patriotic stuff. So who are the heroes that’ll be honored Judd?
Judd Sellars: Of course, we’ve invited all the local law enforcement from city police to county police. Brother Tom Henry’s coordinating that with all our different surrounding counties in middle Tennessee. Your first responders, firefighters to emergency management, veterans, of course, Charlie was all about our veterans. He did many, many, many tours across seas, and that was his heart’s desire was to do what he could do for the men and women that serve our country. Because our freedom is not free, it’ because of men and women in our military, that’s willing to replace their life on the line for our freedoms. And we salute them for that. And that’s going to be a big part of this patriotic service as well.
Eddie Poole: Absolutely. And I think Charlie would love this. We’re going to have a lot of food trucks there, from what I understand too. Is that right?
Judd Sellars: We are. Lots of different vendors. We’re talking to, of course, a lot of the same vendors that’s usually at the Wilson County Fair. Also a lot of folks that, I think they’ve postponed the actual October Fest that Wilson Bank & Trust does such a great job with, we’ll have a lot of those same vendors. It’s going to be a lot of festival things like maybe face painting for kids, jumpies. This is a family day, God, family, and country. And this is what we’re celebrating. And I think that’s with all the divisions in our country now we want to bring this thing together. It don’t matter what party you’re in. This is a family day and we want to honor God, number one. And of course, Mr. Charlie, he was all about God. He was a very godly man. A lot of things for whatever age you are, from the food trucks, to the bouncies, to the different things for the kids, as well. Bring your kids. We want this to be a family day and I think it’s very important to teach your kids about what it’s about to be patriotic.
Eddie Poole: Judd, I appreciate you hanging out with us and telling us all about the events coming up and the possible museum honoring Charlie. Hey, I appreciate you watching.
