MEMPHIS SECTION Drive and Dine to Pickwick Dam on the Tennessee River, June 19, 2021. In our Section’s first group event in more than a year, six Mercedes-Benz models from an SLK to an SUV, and 10 members and spouses made the 90-mile drive from the showroom of Mercedes-Benz of Collierville out to Pickwick Landing State Park in Counce, Tennessee. Our route took us east along TN 57, one of the most scenic rural byways in west Tennessee. The first order of business when we arrived was lunch at the newly renovated restaurant at the Lodge and Conference Center at the State Park. The great view from the restaurant included the lock and dam at Pickwick Landing, built in the 1930’s by the TVA as part of the navigation system that allows commercial river traffic all the way up the Tennessee River to Knoxville. Sure was great to get out and drive and meet again with Section friends!
