Blount Partnership News & Events

It's hard to believe that Memorial Day weekend is upon us. Did you know that Memorial Day originally began to honor and celebrate Union Soldiers who died during the Civil War? So let's be safe and say "Thank you" to a veteran.
Before then, there are many activities and events this week and next. If you want to be active in a child's life, check out the Big Brothers Big Sisters Lunch and Learn at Boys and Girls Club on Tuesday. Also get out and enjoy the Foothills Antique Tractor Show and the Smoky Mountain Quilters 34th Annual Quilt Show and Competition taking place in Townsend this weekend.

Don't forget about coffee club next Thursday sponsored by Five Star Food Service at DENSO and the BYLD May social at Smoky Mountain Brewery.

Well, RSVP to Amy for this Blount Partnership 101 to see how you can make the most of the benefits afforded to you. It takes place Thursday, May 29 at 9:30 a.m., at CBBC 330 East Broadway, Maryville.
If you like tractors and engines, then be sure to mark your calendar for the Foothills Antique Tractor Show, May 23-24, at the Visitor's Center in Townsend. This two-day event brings together all kinds of tractors from every era along with food, vendors, music and arts & crafts. Admission is free with $5 parking.
Who can forget the raspy vocal stylings of Kim Carnes as she topped the Billboard Singles chart this week in 1981 with "Bette Davis Eyes?" It spent nine weeks at No. 1 and was Billboard's biggest hit of the year. The recording won the 1982 Grammy Awards for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
