The latest newsletter was released Friday, as it is each and every Friday! This newsletter focuses on the violent tornado that struck the Tansi community in May of 1995. That was a phenomenal storm that, after many quiet years, reminded us of our vulnerability to severe weather. Find out about this and more at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/! Proceeds from subscriptions go toward supporting the MM kids classes taught monthly at both TCAT Crossville and Roane State Clarkrange.
The next MM kids class will be at the Clarkrange Roane State Campus on May 19. This will be the first MM class in Fentress County! That class is now full.
Classes for the Crossville campus at TCAT will now be every third Wednesday of each month. That class will start at 4:00 p.m. To register for this month’s class just go to https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScoWowC2e5wpuu1cqDp2SQBcWwoCpYzhHzqxbOjThznSL7gug/viewform
