Glenn Moser Memorial Park Dedication
“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” ― Steve Maraboli
Friday, June 4, 2021, was sunny and warm with white puffy clouds floating lazily in the sky. It was weather typical of a beautiful southern spring day. It was also a day that will be long remembered in Madisonville, Tennessee. This was the day an incredibly special man was honored by the town he loved so much. That man was Glenn Moser, beloved Mayor of Madisonville who passed away on December 17, 2020.
The Glenn Moser Memorial Park was dedicated with much fanfare on this day. Guests from far and wide came to pay their respects to this great man who gave 28 years of exemplary service to Madisonville and its citizens. There were several speakers who spoke eloquently about how Glenn was an example for all to follow.
The speakers included Gus Davis current Mayor of Madisonville, Monroe County Mayor Mitch Ingram, Tennessee Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally, US Representative Chuck Fleischman, State Senator Mike Bell, State Representatives Lowell Russell and Mark Cochran, and Tennessee Governor Bill Lee.
The Park is one of the first steps in updating and developing the downtown area of Madisonville, a goal Mayor Moser had set for the town some time ago. It is fitting that this park be named for the leader who always put the city first.
Glenn Moser was born December 5, 1941, in Madisonville where he lived his entire life. His commitment to his community was apparent early in his life. He always tried to do what was best for his beloved hometown. If there was ever a person who deserved this honor, it would be Glenn Moser.
We, as citizens of this fine city, should follow Mayor Moser’s lead and do whatever we can to help improve the lives of everyone around us and to show the world that great things can be accomplished by those who care.
The next time you visit downtown Madisonville, go by the park, which is located across the street from City Hall’s current location, and see for yourself what the beginning of a dream looks like. Glenn Moser’s dream was for a beautiful and vibrant downtown Madisonville. Let us all help him achieve that goal.
