The family of Robert E. “Bob” Porter was deeply saddened by his passing last week. To honor Bob and thank the local community that befriended and supported him, an informal gathering will be held starting at 1 p.m. Sunday at Bob’s former home at 3520 Bluff Point Drive in Knoxville. A lunch buffet with drinks will be served.
Bob’s children, Christopher and Abbey, welcome attendees to bring stories or thoughts about their father.
Please rsvp by Thursday November 28 (end-of-day ok), just so we can judge the luncheon requirements.
Any questions, please call or text Abbey at 610-585-5147.
BLUEGRASS AND BREAKFAST-FOR-SUPPER:
The Lake Hills Presbyterian Church has invited the entire community to participate and enjoy bluegrass and breakfast on Sunday night, March 5, at 6:00 pm at the Church. Bring a breakfast dish to share (potluck). Drinks are provided.
After eating, the Misty River Bluegrass Band will give a concert. They are an outstanding band who also perform a couple of times a year at Blackberry Farm. It is a great opportunity for fellowship, good food and fun.
If you have questions, contact Suzan Bowman at 865-579-9001.
Most residents of Lakemoor Hills are not City of Knoxville residents, do not pay city taxes, and therefore do NOT have fire protection unless they subscribe to the service that Rural Metro offers. At our last homeowners’ meeting we learned that Rural Metro will respond to a fire in our neighborhood whether that family has subscribed to fire protection or not. If you are a subscriber, the visit is free. If you do not subscribe, the fee is $1,500 per truck per hour. Multiple trucks are typically dispatched. The average cost charged to the homeowner to put out a fire is $8,000. If you do not subscribe to fire protection, then it is time to do it. Don’t gamble on never having a visit from the fire department. That is a costly mistake. Here is a document that will give you information on their service.rural metro
The Lakemoor Hills Garden Club’s annual pecan sale is easy as pie again this year. Place your order before mid-October and your new-crop pecans will be delivered to your home before Thanksgiving. A garden club member will call or e-mail you to arrange the most convenient delivery time.
These are mammoth whole new-crop Georgia pecan halves for only $12 per pound (+1$ for online purchases). Pieces are also available. Remember, proceeds from the pecan sale are used to beautify the neighborhood’s public garden areas. If you have questions call Fran Thomforde at 621-2418 or e-mail email@example.com.
