Support The Signal Mountain Police And Fire Christmas Fund 2018

Sunday, December 2, 2018

Centennial celebration planning, new Town Council members, strong schools, sports and extracurricular activities, a second fire hall and 10 new firefighters, a lot is happening in our community due to the selfless efforts of so many leaders and public servants.

As we prepare for the Centennial Celebration of Signal Mountain (April 4, 2019) and reflect on the many men and women, families, and generations who have invested in the community in which we are fortunate to live, work, and play, we are thankful for the 46 police and fire personnel who protect us every day. 

Over 45 years ago, my grandfather, Silas M. Robertson, Jr., started the Signal Mountain Police & Fire Christmas Fund. After his passing in 2004 and in light of his legacy of giving and of loving our community, we named the fund the S. M. Robertson Police & Fire Christmas Fund. This is a time for the citizens of Signal Mountain to express our thanks by contributing to a Christmas Fund, which is divided among the police and fire personnel on Christmas Eve.

Please join me in showing our overwhelming support for these men and women. As Christmas is a time to rejoice with family and friends and a time to thank God for our many blessings, please consider making a contribution as part of your year-end giving. No gift is too small or too large ($10, $25, $100, $500, or more).

Due to our growth, we have added 10 firefighters over the last year so any additional dollars would  be greatly appreciated. You can put your contribution in a box located at the Police Station or mail a check payable to the S. M. Robertson Police & Fire Christmas Fund, to the Police Department,
1111 Ridgeway Ave., Signal Mountain, TN 37377 or donate with PayPal.

As we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, your police officers and firefighters join me in wishing you and yours a safe and happy Christmas season.

Why Does Walden Need A Large Grocery Store?

The town of Walden has a population of 2,118 people. What do those citizens need with a 49,000 square foot grocery store? Or with 10,000 square feet of commercial office space? Or a fuel island? Or increased tractor trailer traffic with proportional damage to the road up and down the mountain? Or multiple traffic lights at the “W” Road intersection and at Timesville Road? When ...

So the New York Yankees are banning Kate Smith's rendition of "God Bless America," as they have found some allegedly racist lyrics in two of her songs from more than 80 years ago. That's pretty funny coming from a Major League Baseball franchise since at that time there were no black players allowed in MLB. It would be at least a decade before Jackie Robinson took the field for ... (click for more)
