What is Santa bringing to the next NKBPA meeting? It’s up to you, have you shopped yet? Our White Elephant Gift Exchange is coming up. December 14, 2018 | 7:45AM This meeting is just plain FUN. Our December Program is the Annual White Elephant Gift Exchange and Election of New Officers. Join us at the O’Connor Senior Center – 611 Winona St, Knoxville, TN 37917.
Rules for White Elephant Gift Exchange: In order to get a gift, you must bring a gift. If you are bringing a guest, bring an extra gift so they can share in the fun. Gifts can represent your business, be fun or be special, the choice is yours.
We hope to see you there! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the current NKBPA Board Members! We will also recognize businesses and nonprofits for their involvement this year as well.
Note: If your organization has an event coming up, please bring flyers or information to be placed on the tables. This way our members have a tangible reminder and we can use it to publicize your events on social media. Thank you, this helps us to wrap up the meeting on time.
One of the membership’s favorite gatherings happens this month and it is an opportunity to be Santa for a high school student. No, you don’t have to don the suit, high school kids wouldn’t be seen near Santa’s shack and that big red suit, that wouldn’t be cool. Everyone should feel the joy of the season and you can spread that cheer to a high school student who might not have gifts under their tree.
Our speaker this month will be Tom Spangler, Knox County’s new Sheriff. Spangler started at the Knox County Sheriff’s Office as a jailer in 1980 and climbed the ranks to become the chief deputy under Sheriff Tim Hutchison and then under JJ Jones. He has worked as a patrol supervisor, headed the narcotics division, started the aviation unit, was a SWAT team member for 14 years and more. Come out and meet Sheriff Spangler and learn what’s new in the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.
We have started a new feature for our Business Spotlight, this month it is Old North Knoxville and they have been asked to do a radio interview on Fulton Radio. Listen live at 91.1 FM or tune in there are a variety of ways to listen, check it out here.
UPDATE: Our location has changed from Habitat to the Boys & Girls Club on Irwin.
Our speaker this month will be Eve Thomas, Knoxville’s new police chief. She began her career with the Knoxville Police Department in 1993. She most recently served as deputy chief over the Criminal Investigation Division.
Thank you to Boys & Girls Club for hosting our meeting on September 14th at 7:45 am. Our breakfast sponsor is Broadway Carpets, thank Garry Tener when you see him.
As we focus on what’s going on in our city and our zip code, this meeting you won’t want to miss!
So come to meet the new police chief and thank her for taking the time to meet with us.
