Saturday, Dec. 6th – Karns Christmas Parade!  Line up at Ingles at 9 a.m.

Parade starts at 10 a.m. and proceeds to the red light at Walgreen’s.  

Cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place floats!

All street legal vehicles, tractors and horses with diapers are welcome.  We already have Santa from the Lions Club so no other floats can have Santa.  Questions?  Call Roger Kane at 405-5103.

The mission of the Northwest Knox Business and Professional Association is to promote the common economic interests of the commercial enterprises within the communities of Northwest Knox County in Knoxville, Tennessee.  These communities include Ball Camp, North Cedar Bluff, Hardin Valley, Karns, and Solway.  We accomplish this, in part, by:

  1. Encouraging development and events that support our local businesses and promote our communities as desirable places to live, work, and shop;
  2. Promoting continuous improvement in business knowledge, safety, customer focus, ethical business conduct, and the role of business and business leaders within the larger community; and
  3. Partnering with schools and other community institutions, organizations, and service-providers in mutually-beneficial ways to support the education and development of our future entrepreneurs and workforce.

All businesses in the community are invited to send representatives to join our noon lunch meetings (and our occasional dinner meetings). The meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, typically at 7708 Oak Ridge Highway in the Karns Community Center Building.  The dinner meetings take place in March, June, September, and December, with the next dinner meeting being on December 11.

The next regular meeting will be Thursday, November 13, 2014 at noon at the Karns Community Club Center, 7708 Oak Ridge Highway.  Lunch will be available for $5 for members; $7 for non-members.

A dynamic new time has begun at NWKBPA.  Be part of it.  Invite at least one new business to attend.
