Bluebird in the Boro

Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

For two consecutive evenings during the final week of February, Alive Hospice supporters and music lovers gathered at The Grove to listen to some of our best local singer/songwriters perform their hit songs. Appetizers, drinks and dinner were provided, followed by the performances of different songwriters each evening.

The final evening always sells out quickly because local songwriters Tim James and Dan Couch, along with friends, are the performers. The songwriters share their stories, tell jokes and totally captivate their audience.

Proceeds from Bluebird in the Boro support Alive’s community services including fi nancial support for patients, grief counseling for adults and children and community education about the end of life. Alive is a 501©3 charitable nonprofit organization.

We’re fortunate to have an Alice Hospice facility right here in Murfreesboro, turning away no one, regardless of ability to pay. For more information and to donate, visit
