The inaugural “Let the Good Times Roll” bowling event raised just over $5,000 for the Tennessee Trucking Foundation. The Young Professionals Council organized and hosted the fundraiser on March 30th. Jessie Merritt, the current YPC Chairman says, “We hope this grows to be as successful as our annual Top Golf fundraiser in October, which benefits the Haulin’ for the Holidays toy drive. I can’t thank Joe Fischer enough, who secured bowling teams and sponsorships, and Andrea Hall and Patrick Mendenhall, who helped with the planning and hand painting of 11 bowling pin trophies.” Joe Fischer, Territory Sales and Service Manager at Eaton says “We’re really grateful to the TTA members who are so generous with their time and resources. Our folks continue to show up for us whether it’s bowling, Top Golf, or golf tournaments.” Click here to view all pictures.

With the legislature adjourning several days ago, we thought now would be a good opportunity to bring you up to date on the revision of the towing statute that is PC 826. This was primarily sponsored by Senator Bailey and co-sponsored by Senators Powers and Stevens in the Senate and primarily sponsored by Representative Marsh and co-sponsored by Representative Hazelwood in the House.
