There's no better proof that even the smallest detail is a priority to Town employees than the flourishing, green, grassy entranceway leading into Town Hall at 500 Poplar View Parkway. With this kind of attention to the details, it's no wonder the big projects look so good, keeping Collierville on the list of great places to call home.
It's not necessarily easy being green in wintertime. Chip Petersen, Director/Collierville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department works with Parks employees to find a way to maintain several of the town's athletic complexes and Town Hall entrance green year-round.
The Town of Collierville offers 15 boards and commissions for service by volunteers to use their voice to advise staff on policy, practices and procedures.
Annually, some 130 appointees give many hours to assist elected officials with precedents and guidelines through boards/commissions. Applicants submit their name and information at the close of each year for consideration by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen.
The members of the Collierville Heritage Commission are appointed annually and work to preserve the history of Collierville, to ensure future generations have the opportunity to learn of the rich history and growth of the Town.
Once again it's just about time for the annual Fair on the Square held in the historic town square district in downtown Collierville. Always the first weekend in May, this year, the 39th annual event is set for May 3-4, 2014, Saturday, 10 AM-6 PM and Sunday, May 3, noon-5 PM. Admission is free to visitors.
The Fair on the Square was first held in 1976 as a part of the United States' bicentennial celebration. It continues to be an eagerly anticipated family festival sponsored by the Collierville Twentieth Century Club.
The quaint and charming historic town square is the backdrop for approximately 170 vendors who set up their tents in the park to sell hand-made items such as children's clothing and toys, wood and pottery wares, jewelry, bakery items, garden decorations, candles, and many other items appropriate for Mother's Day gifts or simply a gift to oneself.
