Letter from East Tennessee Executive Director Michelle Hankes, June 2015
While technically, summer isn’t here until the end of June, it certainly feels like things are heating up in East Tennessee. We currently have over a dozen volunteers deployed to Texas, assisting with everything from casework to shelter management, and still we’re dealing with apartment fires and other local disasters. Volunteers are out in the community speaking and teaching about fire safety, health safety and preparedness.
To help keep everyone in the loop, I’m trying to make better use of the calendar associated with the All East Tennessee Chapter Volunteers Group Share page on Volunteer Connection. It will list meetings, trainings and other Red Cross activities and information on how to register. If you see something missing, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org with all of the details so I can add it to the calendar.
Also, please remember that the 3rd Monday at 4 p.m. ET is our All-Volunteer Meeting at the Knoxville ARC office. Our June 15th meeting will feature Rochelle from Woodmen of America to talk about the history of the U.S. flag, in honor of Flag Day the day before.
As always, be careful out there, and be proud of all that you do for others!
