Reflection of a New Board Member
I’m coming up on a year as a Board Member of Three Rivers Market and several things have been reconfirmed during this time: 1. Knoxville is a great community, 2. Three Rivers is a great community resource, and 3. You get out of any organization what you put in.
Over the past year, it feels as if a week scarcely goes by without someone posting an article or link about Knoxville’s attractions or rankings in a national poll. I don’t think most people are surprised. It just reflects the pride many people have felt over the years for our community. As Central Avenue & North Knoxville/Happy Holler transform before our eyes, we can see how this pocket of Knoxville will soon be on everyone’s radar. Several years ago, Three Rivers Market made a thoughtful business and community decision to be an anchor in this neighborhood and we’re seeing some of the results of this decision today. Walking to lunch on Central Avenue, I relish the transformation of neglected buildings and look towards the day of a better crossing at Baxter. It has been a treat to have Three Rivers Market as my work ‘cafeteria’ and to share it through business meetings and lunches with friends.
I continue to be impressed with the management, employees, and board of Three Rivers Market and I know you are too. Please plan on attending the annual meeting on Tuesday, December 2nd and meet the people that help make Knoxville a great place to live and consider how you can get more involved and support Three Rivers Market.
