RE/MAX Renaissance Realtors and other local businesses supported residents and staff of the Dominion Senior Living Center at 2143 Northpoint Boulevard, in Hixson on Friday, hosting the first annual Corn Hole Toss Tournament to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

Over 25 teams registered to play. Other activities included dancing, food vendors, a silent auction and free giveaways.  Representing RE/MAX were Hixson residents and agents, Brenda Purcell and Mike Purcell along with Katie Carpenter Ashley.

Ms. Purcell’s parents are residents at Dominion.

She said, "I am always looking for ways to support the center’s staff in engaging these seniors. Activities such as these allow my mom and dad as well as other residents to remain in a vital “helping” role in our community.  Such activities allow them to enjoy much needed socialization with their peers. They feel good about serving others.  My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease over 10 years ago.  One important thing that I learned early on was to keep him active and moving.  Exercise and socialization have played a huge role in helping him cope with the disease.  At the center, he can live as independently as possible at this stage.  He needs some assistance and a safe environment.  As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I know first-hand some of the struggles and decisions families must face when selling mom and dad’s home to allow them the freedom to continue living as independently as possible.  I also realize there is a time when they need more assistance…more than a family can give.  For that reason, I will continue to be on a personal mission to give back to such worthwhile events."

Here We Go Again With The Same Cummings Highway, 12th Street Flooding - And Response

Here we go again with the same pitiful news reports about the Cummings Highway Interstate interchange with I-24 - Flooding yet again after a heavy rain.  TDOT is derelict in not having repaired this years ago.  How hard is it to get some excavators out there to dig up the collapsed drainage pipes which TDOT says are the cause of the flooding and replace them with ...

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
