Kingsport Historical Society July Presentation

July 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The Kingsport Historical Society will meet at 10 a.m. on July 17 at the Kingsport Higher Education Center. The guest speaker will be M’Liss Mather, formerly of Memphis, who came to Kingsport with her husband 40 years ago. The couple raised their children and worked in the health care community while enjoying the banks of Patrick Henry Lake.

Mather’s presentation is titled “TVA and the town that would drown” and will cover the origin and growth of the TVA from its beginnings in the Great Depression as a flood control project to its current tasks of generating electric power for most of the Tennessee River Valley, regulating water flow to the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, providing water navigation to Knoxville and water recreation opportunities to millions of residents and visitors. The event is free and open to the public.

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
