Appreciation Days

Usually held in October. 


The first “Scotts Hill Appreciation Day” celebration was in the fall of 1982.  It was a one day event.  The idea for the event evolved from the previous year at an anniversary celebration staged by two stores in Scotts Hill.

Bands entertained with gospel, country and pop music.  Arts and crafts and flea market booths were set up.  Kettle stew was made, refreshments were provided, prizes were given away throughout the day.  A live radio remote was there all day.   A large crowd attended and had lots of fun.

The statement was made that it would be nice if all the merchants of Scotts Hill would join together and do the same thing at the city park as a reward to their customers; a show of appreciation for their loyalty and support for the year.  Wham!  Reckon that is where the name “Appreciation Day” came from?  Anyway, a group of volunteers got together ( forming what is now referred to as the  Appreciation Day Committee ) talked to the Scotts Hill merchants and concerned citizens –- got enough donations and support to organize the event.

It was an immediate success.  Through lots of hard work and dedication by several people the event has grown each year.  There has been a wide variety of activities throughout the years.  We have had some flops – lots of criticisms – but are proud of what we have accomplished.  We try to add something new each year while holding to our old values.

In 1986 the State of Tennessee staged an extensive statewide campaign “Homecoming ‘86” inviting everyone back home to Tennessee.  We joined that campaign and brought lots of people back to Scotts Hill, Tennessee.  We were proud to be a part of that effort.  After all, we had experience.  That had been our goal since the fall of 1982.
