The residence at 508 St. Paul Drive has been named the “Yard of the Month” for May in Tulip Grove.

The May 2017 “Lawn of the Month” award was presented by Hal Perry to Gene and Thelma Jennings who reside at 508 St. Paul Drive. The Jennings have lived at th residence for 44 years now and they have two sons and four grandchildren that brighten their days. Gene is retired from the lamp and shade lighting business. He owned an operated the Nashville based “Home Lamp Company” for 43 years and traveled the southern region representing his company during his tenure.
Sadly, Mr. Jennings was recently diagnosed with lung cancer.  “I believe that them winning this month seemed to uplift their spirits when I visited them Sunday evening,” Perry said. “All of the Jennings’ grandchildren were at their home that day loving on him in full support.”
Thelma is also retired after having been employed at Castner Knott Stores. She was also a tour guide for The Hermitage. The Jennings say that they love their neighborhood and have nothing but praise for their long time neighbors. Gene enjoys trimming his shrubs and bushes from time to time knowing that soon Thelma will eventually be rewarding him with a tall glass of sweet tea to help replenish him after his efforts on a long hot southern summer day!
