Elizabethton Twins and the Shepherd's Inn

Summer has gone by and I haven't been to a Twins game. We haven't had a church outing either. So Sunday, August 30th let's go to see the first place Elizabethton Twins!

The special thing about it is that it is Shepherd's Inn Night.

Our church supports the Shepherd's Inn, the Carter County domestic violence shelter. The director, Paul Gabinet, is a member of our church board. Here is the scoop:


The Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department will be sponsoring “SHEPHERD’S INN NIGHT” this Sunday, August 30th with The Elizabethton Twins. The Twins will be playing the Bristol White Socks at Elizabethton. There will be a team photograph given to the first 500 fans with proceeds contributed to The Shepherd’s Inn courtesy of Walgreen Drug Store.

“We are happy to sponsor THE SHEPHERD’S INN NIGHT as part of our Twins season…The Shepherd’s Inn is a vital part of our community and worthy of our fan support…” says Mike Manis Director of Elizabethton Parks and Recreation and Manager of the Elizabethton Twins.

From 6:00 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. there will be Karaoke with well-known personality Michael Hawkins. All wishing to sing will be ask to make a financial contribution to The Shepherd’s Inn.

Also beginning at 6:00 The Shepherd’s Inn will be serving “Sundaes on Sunday.” There will be a charge of $3.00. All proceeds will go directly to The Shepherd’s Inn.

Elizabethton/Carter County’s only emergency shelter assisting victims of Domestic Violence and temporarily homeless women and their children, The Shepherd’s Inn is a 24 /7 operation. Shelter funding relies totally on gifts from the community. There have been over 1000 guest admissions to the shelter since beginning operation in 1997.

Everyone is invited for a fun night and support for the league’s first place TEAM ---The Elizabethton Twins and The Shepherd’s Inn.

Let's do it! See you Sunday at Joe O'Brien Stadium!
