Breakfast is sponsored by BESCO and the meeting will begin at 7:45am. 

Our speaker will be the new Knox County Mayor, Glenn Jacobs. A celebrity known the world over as WWE’s Kane, Jacobs could have lived and served anywhere but chose Knoxville as home. Long before becoming mayor, Jacobs served his community by giving back and making a difference. He serves on the advisory council at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, as well as the board of the Halls/Powell Boys and Girls Club, owns Jacobs Insurance Associates, is the local champion of the Kindness Revolution, a national anti-bullying initiative. He and his wife Crystal also founded Kane’s Crusaders, a non-profit organization with the mission of bringing joy to the chronically ill teenagers of East Tennessee.

Be a Secret Santa at Fulton High School

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.

Don’t miss this meeting at 7:45am on November 9th at Fulton High. We will meet in the Library. This meeting will also have an auction to raise money for the Secret Santa program, word has it that Broadway Carpets will bring a special rug to auction for the holidays.
