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.

Jeff Jarnigan, will be our speaker. You have heard his voice on the radio for years, he is a radio legend here in Knoxville and a Fulton High Alumni! He is the voice that gives you the low-down at UT Football and Basketball games as the University of Tennessee PA Announcer, he is also currently operations manager for Cumulus Media here in Knoxville, which includes WIVK’s country station, News-Talk WOKI, and Sports-Talk WNML. That makes him a busy guy, with some great stories. This will be a fun meeting you won’t want to miss!
