When you join this group you have a free 90-day trial period and then you will be asked to pay dues of $4 which is good for a year.
This group is open to anyone transplanted to the Knoxville/Smoky Mountain area from other parts of the country or world. Many of us have no family here. Join us if you are looking for friends or social networking, and things to do around town. Examples of our meetups are dinners, brunches, festivals, entertainment events, game nights, free or cheap classes, outdoor activities. Members are expected to be active - either by coming to events or suggesting events.
Due to problems with an ex-member, IT IS NOW MANDATORY THAT YOU HAVE A PHOTO OF YOURSELF AND A REAL NAME. This group is completely private, and only members will see your photo. If your membership is denied, please fix the reason why and submit again. If you have a photo of yourself and then remove it after you've become a member, I will remove you from the group. We don't have any "whackos" in this group and those are exactly the ones who DON'T want to post photos of themselves.
I COULD USE MORE ASSISTANT ORGANIZERS to plan events in west Knoxville. Our dinners are usually adult-only but there are plenty of other events that are family-friendly. Meetup locations are scattered around a broad area.I want you to feel this is YOUR group and you can plan any sort of activity you wish.
**IMPORTANT: This group is very diverse. Young, old, single, families, liberal and conservative, Christian and non-Christian, straight and gay. Tolerance is MANDATORY. Unless you know members feel the same way you do, we avoid discussions of religion and politics. If you have a problem with any type of person, please do NOT join this group.
