Grateful Gobbler Virtual 5K To Host Drive-Thrus For Participants To Pick Up Their T-Shirts

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Over the past 20 years, thousands of people who have made the Grateful Gobbler Walk their Thanksgiving Morning tradition typically descend upon Coolidge Park on Thanksgiving Eve to pick up their t-shirts in preparation for Thanksgiving morning.
 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers of the 21st Annual Grateful Gobbler Walk made two changes this year to safeguard the community.

First, organizers decided to make this year’s event virtual, meaning individuals and families can choose the location whereby they can walk, run, roll or stroll a 5K on Thanksgiving morning at 8 a.m.
 
Secondly, organizers made a decision to host two drive thrus to give participants an opportunity to safely and conveniently pick up their t-shirts.

The drive-thrus will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at The First Horizon Pavilion, 1826 Reggie White Blvd. in Chattanooga, this Saturday and on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
 
There is still time to register for the 2020 Grateful Gobbler Virtual 5K.  The cost to participate is $30 for adults and $15 for ages 12 and under.
 
Every dollar raised from the Grateful Gobbler Walk will ensure that the Maclellan Shelter for Families can continue to provide shelter, childcare, transportation, life opportunities and hope to families experiencing homelessness.

County Employees Need A Bonus Too

A few weeks ago we learned that Sheriff Jim Hammond was asking for a second raise. Earlier this year Hamilton County employees were notified that "due to COVID-19" there would be no raises for employees of any kind this year. I guess Mr. Hammond didnt get that memo about no raises. Why is it that some employees will be getting a raise and others are not? That doesn't really ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: A Thanksgiving Lesson

We had a strict rule at our house in my childhood that whenever there was a festive dinner of any type, politics were never allowed to be broached nor discussed, and the only time religion was ever mentioned was during the blessing itself. So, I laughed from a lifetime of experience when I heard on Saturday that one of my dearest friends, suddenly surrounded by flaming lefties who ... (click for more)
