Men’s 2017 Basketball Team

Our men’s basketball team in TN finished up the season in 3rd place in the Morristown Park & Rec League.  They played 18 games (after work, of course) and put up a total of 1,069 points through the season!

Great Start to Blood Drive

Tennessee recently held a blood drive on May 24th through Medic Regional.  They collected 21 units of blood to help supply the area hospitals.  They gave away prizes to those who donated and Mark Potenza was the grand prize winner of 2 tickets to the Titanic attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN.
