Join us for our May membership meeting at Rothchild's where we will be hearing from the Knox County Community Action Committee.  

Our IREM Chapter 57 will be sponsoring and participating in the PAWS Among the Blooms.  PAWS is a program with the Knoxville-Knox County Community Action Committee (CAC) and their mission (Placing Animals With Seniors) is to place adoptable pets from local shelters with eligible seniors.  Research indicates that pets improve seniors’ physical, emotion, and mental health and we all know that local shelters are at all time overflowing with pets.  It’s a beautiful idea for two very worthy groups.

We will be assembling/designing silent auction baskets (using donated items and gift cards that have been donated) during this meeting to help prepare them for the PAWS Among the Blooms on May 17th.  

PAWS among the Blooms will be held on May 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 at Stanley’s Greenhouse.  3029 Davenport Road in South Knoxville.  There will be live music, plants, flowers, silent auction, andhors d’oeuvres.  Tickets are $25 at the door or online at knoxseniors.org.  In addition to funds raised through ticket sales and silent auction items, Stanley’s will donate a percentage of the gross sales from purchases made during the event.

If you want to get involved before the event, here are a few Volunteer Opportunities

  • Tickets sales (before and during the event)
  • Advertising (hanging event flyers, sharing the event through your personal or business social media and e-mail channels
  • Soliciting donations and sponsorships
  • Staffing the event (welcome table, silent auction, replenishing food stations, after event clean-up)

As you can see there are many ways to get involved and help.  Please think about participating in some way.  Any kind of support is appreciated.  You may contact Cat Scussel (CScussel@utmck.edu) or Amy Sherrill (asherrill@benefieldrichters.com) to sign up.
