Spring 2016

Well it’s Spring of 2016 and everything is in full swing in at WestGate Lodging. We are getting ready for the intern season to start. We look forward to seeing all the different faces from returning interns to the new interns. We have many interns that return year after year until graduation.

The Oak Ridge mall project which is called Main Street Oak Ridge is finally moving ahead towards a start date. The new company that is doing it is set to make the final payment of the loan to First Tennessee bank and this will satisfy the remaining payments and interest. So hopefully soon they will start demolishing the old mall and making way for the new project to start.

The Secret City Festival is June 10 and June 11 with lots of activities for the kids and adults. There will be several activities for kids including a petting zoo, playful city, fire truck slide, inflatables, crafts and games. On Saturday there will be a Home Depot Kids Workshop. Also for the older kids there will be laser tag, karaoke and a video game trailer. For the Adults there will be arts and crafts fair with craft and pottery demonstrations. also a Manhattan Project Historical Park Tour on both days. There is also train excursions that leave from the former K-25 Heritage Center.

On Friday night Charlie Daniels Band will play and on Saturday night Grand Funk Railroad will play, it’s going to be a great time at both of those concerts.
