Joseph Adamo has been called to serve as the branch president for the Dayton, Tn. branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  A branch president is the leader of a congregation.  He “watches over and strengthens the members, conducts sacrament meetings and directs branch activities," according to Church officials.  A branch president holds the Melchizedek Priesthood, as referenced in the Holy Bible.  Branch presidents are not paid for their services nor do they seek the position.  They are called by The Lord.  Their employment is outside of the Church.

 

Mr.

Adamo is currently the plant manager of Rubbermaid Commercial Products in Cleveland, TN.  The plant employs approximately 180-200 associates, full-time and part-time.  Rubbermaid has a yarn plant and a sewing plant and they manufacture a variety of mops for all cleaning substrates.  Mr. Adamo holds a BS degree in Finance from Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio; a Master’s in Supply Chain Management from the University of Central Michigan; and a Master’s in Quality Control in Engineering from Kennedy Western University, Cheyenne, Wyoming.

 

He grew up in Fairborn, Ohio at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.  His father was a career officer, a fighter pilot, in the Air Force.  Their family was stationed at Bitburg and Wiesbaden AFB in Germany for three and a half years.  They traveled Europe extensively during that time.  President Adamo has lived in Tennessee for two years, and previously served as a Bishop for the Church in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.  He is married to his sweetheart, Caroline, and they are the parents of seven children – six boys and one girl – Brandon, Vincent, Collin, Anthony, Dominic, Natalie, and Spencer.  

 

Brandon is married and attending the University of Texas, working on his PhD in Battery Sustainability.  Vincent lives in South Carolina and is raising the Adamo’s only grandchild, Kynlee, who is two and wonderful joy in their lives.  Colin is married and lives in Wisconsin with his spouse and their golden retriever, Oppy.  Colin works in the construction industry.  Anthony relocated to Iowa City since graduating from Platteville University, Wisconsin with a degree in Construction Management.  Dominic is married and working on his degree in Supply Chain Management at Ensign College, Salt Lake City, Utah.  He will then go to BYU to complete his four-year degree.  Natalie is currently attending BYU-Idaho, majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Biology.  She will graduate in the spring.  Spencer recently graduated from High School and is attending the local university in Cleveland, TN.  He is working on his Construction Management Associates Degree and will transfer to one of the larger universities in TN to complete his Bachelor’s. 

 

“The Lord has guided us through the storms of life,” President Adamo said, “and He will guide you, too.  While life will not be without challenges, there will be rainbows along the way because The Lord will bless and guide us as we strive to keep His commandments.  He will make good things better.  With The Lord, all things are possible because He is the true and living Son of the true and living God.  He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world.  We invite all to come unto Christ.  As Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, ‘Come and see.  Come and help.  Come and belong.’”  

 

The Dayton branch meets on Sundays at 9:00 am at 3372 Rhea County Highway, Dayton, Tn.  Due to COVID 19 restrictions, limited services are available at this time.  All COVID-19 guidelines are in place.  Further information about the Church may be accessed at ChurchofJesusChrist.org.

BBB Identity Protection Day Failure

I was truly disappointed in the BBB’s actions on Saturday. They advertised a Shred and Prescription Medication take-back day in order to help protect identity. It was advertised from 9 a.m.-noon. I arrived on Saturday before 11 a.m., more than an hour before the scheduled and advertised end. I found a line of cars going both ways on Lee Highway, blocking traffic in both directions. ...
