Robertson County Sheriff’s Office –

The Senior Awareness Service is for seniors, disabled residents, and their families who need that extra reassurance that someone cares. A deputy from the Sheriff’s Office will call once a week to check on you or your loved one and ensure their needs are being met.

Are you eligible for the SOS program?

If you are a Robertson County citizen over the age of 60 and/or disabled, you are eligible for SOS. We will accept applicants as long as resources are available.

Why would you need this program?

If you are alone or feeling lonely.
If you have recently been discharged from the hospital.
If your friends and family live far away.
If you have a need for weekly contact with a caring person.
Does this program cost anything?

No. The Senior Outreach Service is funded by the Sheriff’s Office. We have partnered with local churches, senior organizations, and volunteers to facilitate a network devoted to outreach for seniors.

What happens if I do not answer when they call?

If there is no response when we call, your emergency contact person will be contacted.

If your emergency contact does not know where you are, the Sheriff’s Office will then do a wellness check. The deputy will respond to your home and ensure your needs are being met.

Need more information?

United Way’s (Free) Community Laundry Love…

Our next Laundry Love day is set for Friday, September 17th – first loads in at 8am, last loads in at 11am. This free laundry day is available to anyone in need. I have attached the updated 2021 Laundry Love Schedule in both English and Spanish.

If you’re able to join as a volunteer in September or any other month please let me know via email, phone, text, or stop by my office.

For August’s Outreach:

August’s outreach was sponsored by Tom Onstott’s Sunday School Class at Springfield Baptist Church. This group has been supporting Laundry Love in various ways since its inception. Thank you, thank you for your generosity, and for believing in this community ministry!

We had 16 volunteers this month – we couldn’t have made it through without each and every one of them!!! Two of our new volunteers were from Regions Bank (Springfield Branch). They not only spent their morning with us washing laundry, they also brought snacks for our friends. Check out some of our sweet friends’ little ones who enjoyed snacks and helped out too.

Our volunteers washed, dried and freshly bagged 910 loads of laundry.

Community Support:

Robertson County 4-H’ers collected quarters during their quarterly meeting and brought us $51.75 of support from one meeting!

Girl Scout Troop 788 started collecting quarters in recycled detergent bottles. We were so grateful one of the troop members was volunteering with us because we needed some extra quarters to get us through all that laundry! They donated $26.75 in August and will continue to collect quarters – thank you!

We had two anonymous donors provide us with $13. They dropped by interested in what we were doing and pulled out some money to support us – wow!

We want to give a huge shout out to our friend Ethan Black, a 7th grader from Coopertown Middle School. A while back Ethan came up with an idea to support our ministry by putting gumball machines in local businesses. He bought the gumball machines and the gumballs to go in them with his own money. One of our business friends who hosts a gumball machine, South Side Drug Co., called to let us know they needed a refill. We met Ethan and his mom in early August and he handed over a gumball container filled with $207 worth of quarters for us to use. Thank you Ethan for finding ways to support your community, it means the world to us!

A bit of History from the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office…

Did you know the Robertson County jail in the 1950s was not only the County jail but the Sheriff’s house? The jail was on the first floor and the Sheriff lived with his family on the 2nd floor. When someone was arrested and brought to the jail at night, the Officer would hit the drainpipe with a piece of metal outside of the Sheriff’s bedroom window to wake the Sheriff up. The Sheriff would come downstairs, let the inmate in, and book them into the jail.

Sept. 26: Williams Chapel Baptist Church Homecoming Invitation

5946 South Lamont Rd. Springfield, TN

Phone: 615-654-3101

Brother Keth Wilson, Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

We would like to extend an invitation to all of our former and present members, families, and friends to join us for a day of sharing memories, Christian fellowship, and our love for Jesus Christ.

In the book of Romans we find this verse, “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and everyone members of one another.” It takes each one of us to make Christ’s body, the church, complete. Without you, our homecoming would not be complete.

The celebration will be held Sunday, September 26 with worship Service at 11:00am with special music. Bro. Jerry Heflin will be the guest speaker. A special offering will be taken for the upkeep of the cemetery as on this day we will be celebrating the memory of loved ones buried in our cemetery. Donations can also be mailed to the Cemetery Treasurer in care of the church. An old fashion dinner will fo11ow.

NOTE: After we printed out invitations, Covid cases have been rising. We still plan on having our homecoming celebration with a few changes to keep us all as safe as possible. Masks are optional and we will have them and sanitizer available. Instead of a potluck fellowship lunch, the church will be purchasing all the food nothing prepared by individuals. Instead of a food line of serving yourself, our fellowship committee will be handing you a to-go box already prepared along with bottled tea, water, or soft drink. Tables and chairs will be set up inside the fellowship hall and outside under tents if you would like to visit with others while you eat. Don’t forget the Cemetery is in wide-open fresh air for you to stroll through and reminisce about loved ones who have gone on to be with our Lord.

We will post any updates on our church Facebook page. You do not need to have a Facebook account to visit it since it is a public page.

Feel free to contact our homecoming committee: Diane White Fuquay 615-9 69-9263, diane.white [email protected] or Ann Mason 615-3 84-7165, [email protected]

Please make plans to attend this wonderful day of thanksgiving and commemoration.

Your friends in Christ, Homecoming Committee
