Harriman Rhapsody in Blue Band Aides is having a car wash to raise money for their 2015-2016 Marching season. It costs around $80,000 a year to run a band program. With your help they can keep their program alive. The car wash will be Saturday May 2 from 9 AM - 2 PM at Advanced Auto Parts in South Harriman.

Residents of Anderson County are asked to come out and enjoy the community festival at the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event which will be held inside Clinton Middle School.  The event will begin on Saturday, April 25th at 2:00 PM and will conclude with closing ceremonies at 12:01 AM on Sunday.  This will be the 15th anniversary of the event in Clinton which has raised more over 1.35 million dollars through the years.  The event will begin with opening ceremonies at 2:00 PM Saturday afternoon as area cancer survivors are individually recognized and then as a group take the Victory Lap while being cheered on by their family, friends and the public.  This is followed by the Parade of Teams.  This is an opportunity for participating teams to strut their stuff with banners, custom made t-shirts and costumes which fit with the theme of their team.  This year the overall even theme is, “Relay”opoly – Fighting Cancer is Not a Game”, so teams will have various themes consistent with games of all types.  Throughout the event the music groups performing include the Leon Thomas Band at 2:45 (country band from Sevierville), The Tenos at 7:00 PM, Handsome and the Humbles at 8:00 PM (alt-country band with strong harmonies and rich guitar tones), and The Oliver’s at 9:15 PM.  There will be a demonstration from the US Taekwondo Academy at 6:00 PM.  The public is invited to join in on Zumba at 6:30 PM led by Joy Winchester from the Take Charge Fitness Program and Karaoke at 11:00 PM.  In addition, there will be a silent auction on the front porch of the courthouse and a live auction around 4:30 PM.  There will be kid’s activities and games throughout the duration of the event on the lawn of the Clinton Middle School with The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department Canine Unit doing a demonstration at that venue at 7:00 PM.  The Clinton Regional Antique Car Club will have a “Cruise-In For a Cure” with cars lining Leinart Street.  The luminaria ceremony will be held at 10:00 PM with hundreds of luminaria bags being lit in the dark as we remember those persons we have lost to cancer and honor our survivors with a special tribute.  Hoskin’s Drug Store will have food and ice cream available with proceeds going to the Relay For Life.  Other teams will also be selling pizza, hot dogs with chili/cheese, funnel cakes, snocones, baked goods and much more.  What better way to contribute to fighting cancer than to bring your family down for a late lunch or dinner on Saturday! You do not have to be on a team to participate.  The public is invited to come throughout the afternoon, evening and night to take a lap or two around the walking path on Main and Leinart Street in memory or honor of someone they know whose life has been touched by cancer.  The teams will also keep the public entertained with the Celebrity Look-A-Like contest at 4:15 PM and the Game Piece Boxcar Race at 7:00 PM.  EVERYONE IS INVITED to attend and enjoy the entertainment, food and activities.  This is a great way to show your support for anyone who has survived their battle with cancer, to remember someone you have lost to cancer and to Fight Back by helping raising money for research so hopefully you or a family member won't be the next one diagnosed with this terrible disease.  Our efforts continue to pay off with new treatment options and declining death rates.  For further information, please call Kelly Lenz, event public relations chairperson at 457-1649 or email her at cptcklenz@aol.com.  You may also access the event website at www.relayforlife.org/eastandersontn

A benefit golf tournament will be held at Whittle Springs Golf Course on May 23rd at 8 am with a shotgun start.  Lunch will be provided.  The cost is $40 per player.  The tournament is for a man named Chris Janeway.  He is a 41 year old father to three girls.  He has had 3 heart attacks and many complications including but not limited to congestive heart failure, a-fib, he had less than 15 % of his heart left and the doctors here in Knoxville told him that there wasn’t anything else they could do.  He went to Vanderbilt to see if he was a candidate for the LVAD (left ventricle assistive device) which works as a bridge to keep him alive until he can get on the heart transplant list.  He was chosen and has since had the procedure and is in therapy.  He has to stay in Nashville for 6 weeks to make sure there are no complications.  His sister in law came from Montana to stay with him.  The reason for the tournament is that he can go on the heart transplant list after the 6 weeks but has to have 10,000 in the bank for rejection medication before they will put him on the list.  If you have any questions please feel free to call me, my name is Dan Hatmaker and you can reach me at Daniel.Hatmaker@mcnabb.org or 865-318-9710.

There will be a thousand women who gather for the upcoming Fresh Grounded Faith women's event in Clinton, TN. The event is hosted by one church but presented by a dozen co-host churches from the region May 1 & 2, 2015  The motto of Fresh Grounded Faith is “One Event. Many Churches. For Every Woman.” "It's inspiring to see so many different churches coming together in unity to bring this event to the area," says founder and featured speaker Jennifer Rothschild, who became blind at age 15. "The process of putting on a Fresh Grounded Faith event breaks down traditional denominational barriers, and brings women together. There are over a hundred volunteers from these different churches working together to bring this event to the area.” It’s the process that empowers women from the area to be focused on one goal - to create a life-changing experience for women. Using teams and team leaders, women have been meeting for months preparing for the big day. Local Conference Coordinator, Sid Brewer, says “It's a beautiful picture to see the Bride of Christ working together to impact the lost and disciple the redeemed. We are blessed to be partnering with Jennifer and her team from Fresh Grounded Faith to bring an incredible event where women can be revived, refreshed and renewed in their walk with Christ, all for the glory of God.” When the day arrives there will be over 120 volunteers present for the volunteers-only meet and greet getting their marching orders for the weekend. Every one of the volunteers plays an important role in the success of the event. “Listen, I may be on the platform in the spotlight with an award winning author and worship leader, but let me tell you, it’s the women who will pour you a cup of coffee, greet you with a smile, and point you to the restrooms that will set the tone for this event,” says Rothschild. “It’s all about creating an atmosphere where every woman feels welcome. We’ve got women in attendance that have a deep and rich faith, but we also have women who have a small cup of faith, or no faith experience at all. Everyone is welcome - we want to meet women where they are. We’re just real women wanting a refreshing experience that’s packed with relevant truth for everyday living,” Rothschild says. The event is being held at Second Baptist Church and will feature popular Bible teacher Jennifer Rothschild, best-selling author Vicki Courtney, and Dove Award winning worship leader and guest artist Meredith Andrews. The event will take place at Second Baptist Church, 777 Public Safety Drive, Clinton, TN 37716. Tickets can be purchased by calling the host church at 865- 457-2046 or toll free 1-800-859-7992, or by visiting www.FreshGroundedFaith.com.
