Happy Fall Season, Fountain City Town Hall Members!

We hope you will join us for our quarterly Town Hall Membership Meeting on November 12th at 7:00 in the Fellowship Hall of the St. Paul United Methodist Church, 4014 Garden Drive 4014 Garden Drive, 37918. Please note the change from our usual location.

Colin Ickes, Director of the Knoxville-Knox County Emergency Management Agency (EMA), will be our featured speaker. Mr. Ickes will discuss the role of the EMA in emergency planning for our area, and measures that individuals can take to be best prepared for emergencies and disasters that could impact the community. We are excited to hear from him on this ever relevant topic.

Our program will be followed by the presentation of the Gresham Middle School Academic and Citizenship Awards to our bright and talented middle school students. It promises to be an exciting and enriching time for all.

Finally, please note that FCTH annual membership renewal fees are due. Membership dues are $15 per year per household, or individual or organization. To become a member or renew your membership, please complete the attached form and mail it with your payment to PO Box 18001, Knoxville, TN, 37928-8001.

As always, thank you for your engagement with the Fountain City community. We look forward to seeing you on November 12th, and at our future member meetings which occur the second Monday of February, April, September and November.
