Ways to get involved

We always welcome professionals to offer educational programs to our members and look for creative ways to communicate important information.

 

We welcome partnering with our local schools & colleges.  For example, we partner with Gatton School of Pharmacy, David Crockett High School, ETSU and the local UT Extension for Washington County.

 

Picnic in ParksmEven though our operating budget is through the Town of Jonesborough, we do depend on the involvement from the community to help us with our “Special Projects Fund” which allows us to offer services that are not in our yearly operating budget.  Examples are hosting special events and the support required for the event such as food, door prizes, entertainment, etc. 

 

We are very blessed to have great support with our local businesses and organizations.  For example, we have several businesses/organizations that host a monthly bingo and provide the prizes too!  Many businesses get involved by offering door prizes for our special events throughout the year and participate in our fund raising events too. In exchange for their participation we do our best to promote their involvement in our events so that our members will remember to support and patronize them.
