May 1, 2024


As we kick off another summer at the lake, we look forward to the days ahead and treasure the memories of seasons past.  We are so fortunate to enjoy the beauty of the lake and the company of friends and family.   


We have begun organizing the 18th Annual Firecracker 5K Fundraiser.  The recipient of the following scholarship have been selected by a committee of your Deerfield Community.


Because of your generosity and race support, the Firecracker 5k at Deerfield Committee will be giving one $10,000.00 scholarship to a very deserving young Senior.  Maggie Faulkner met all of our scholastic achievement and community involvement requirements. But, more importantly – she met our need requirements.  The $2500 she will receive for four years is essential to her realization of her higher education goals.


In addition, the Committee has decided to make a gift of $2500.00 to TCAT – Tennessee College of Technology.  We are requiring the money to be distributed based upon need for uniforms, books, tools, or medical instruments, as requested by students.  We particularly liked this program because it serves high school Co-op students as well as adults returning to technical school.  Supporting this program will serve our community well.


The Firecracker 5K at Deerfield will be held on Friday, July 5, 2024.

All race participants must be registered in advance of July 5, 2024.
