The town of Slayden is holding a fund-raiser Saturday for its beautification project as part of its centennial celebration. Slayden was officially incorporated by the Tennessee General Assembly in March 1913 and current Mayor Gary Hodges has made improving the looks of Dickson County’s smallest municipality a priority of his first term. Saturday’s fund-raiser will be 3-8 pm at the Slayden Community Center and will feature homemade chili, hot dogs, desserts and drinks, door prizes and entertainment by area musicians. To celebrate Slayden’s 100th anniversary, the town will be featured at this year’s Old Timers Days Festival in May. The Old Timers Days Committee has been celebrating Dickson County’s communities by featuring a different one each year, with White Bluff, Burns and Charlotte already having been celebrated. Slayden will be featured this year with a float in the parade and a display on the festival grounds.
