An early notice to save the date for our next SWNA membership meeting, Monday, March 27th - 7:00 @ Woodlawn Christian Church.
The Knoxville History Project is working on a book about the history of South Knoxville. They would like to talk to us about the project and hopefully learn some new stories and find folks who may have photos, etc.
So, dig out any photos you may have and jot down stories about our area and bring them to the meeting! Here’s one example of interesting history… did you know that Woodlawn Cemetery was once a huge sweet potato farm? It’s true! Attached is an old ‘Neighborhood Connection’ newsletter from our archives where you can read a bit more.
ALSO we will be holding our annual elections in March. Our nominating committee - Tim Saults and Debbie Sharp - have been calling folk to see if they are interested in helping guide the direction of our neighborhood association. We will be electing the following positions: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, 3 district representatives and 4 at-large representatives.
You can learn more about the responsibilities for each of the positions in our bylaws which you can find on our website: https://www.swna-knox.org/
If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact Tim Saults (TimS...@Yahoo.com
Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming meeting AND get out and enjoy this beautiful day!
