City of Knoxville Neighborhood Conference - March 11

Trying to decide whether to spend part of Saturday, March 11, at The Neighborhood Conference in Knoxville?
Sure, you’re thinking, there is no charge to participate and enjoy a free continental breakfast, a fun-packed photo booth, a neighborhood tee shirt contest, and door prizes.
But what else?
Well, there IS the free luncheon, where Knoxville Jazz and Blues Singer Kelle Jolly will be on stage with middle and high school students singing blues songs. And eight individuals will be honored for their service to their communities, with Mayor Madeline Rogero presenting one of them with the Diana Conn Good Neighbor of the Year Award.
But what else?
Granted, there will be over 80 information booths provided by city and county departments, nonprofit organizations, and conference sponsors.
But what else?
True, you can meet elected leaders, local government officials, and some of the candidates running in City Council races this year.
But what else?
And, yes, you will be meeting residents and leaders from other neighborhoods, and you will be inspired by others who also care about the quality of life in THEIR neighborhoods.
But what else?
