The Annual Good Friday Prayer Breakfast will be held at the Beaver Dam Baptist Church Fellowship Hall on Friday, March 29, at 7:30 a.m. This annual event, sponsored by the Halls Business & Professional Association, attracts businesses, professionals and residents from the community and is always a sold out affair.
The guest speaker this year is Foster D. Arnett, Jr., Knox County Clerk. He was elected to an interim term in 2008 and re-elected with over 78% of the vote in 2010. He served as Public Information Officer for six years with the Knoxville Police Department. Arnett has the unusual record of news anchor on all three local television stations – WATE-TV, WBIR-TV and WVLT-TV. Arnett has been active in many local organizations and served as deacon at both Second Presbyterian Church, and Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian Church. His wife, Dottie, is a teacher in Knox County Schools.
A catered breakfast will be served prior to Arnett’s Easter Holiday remarks. Tickets are available from the Halls Shopper office Shannon Carey (865) 922-4136 or Halls UPS offices Karen Hurley (865) 922.3946. Sue Walker is chairperson of the event.
