Building a Mountain out of a Mole Hill
It all began with a small group of people (Debbie Dorsey, Paul and Jean Michaels, Bill and Jackie Hite Sarge and Eva Duffy and Betty Cole) back in 1982. Debbie talked her friend, Roy Garr of Garr's Feed Store, into letting her have her first meeting in the store's back room. They often thought about organizing into a club but seems like it wasn’t to be until Debbie Dorsey decided to lead the way and (with the help of the others) made it happen. Thus the birth of The Middle Tennessee Cage Bird Club in 1983. Early meetings were held at Garr's Feed Store until Sarge Duffey, a Nashville Firefighter, aquired the Firemans Union Hall in Donelson, TN until Sarge retired. It was then we moved to the Senior Citizens Club where we now reside.
The club's first Bird Fair was held at The Firemans Union Hall in 1984 followed by a Fair and Show in 1985. The show and Fair out-grew the union hall and were moved to small motels in Nashville. The Fairs have become a bi-annual event held in April and October and the Show an annual event held in October. These events are all held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds as we out-grew the smaller locations.
