Blue Slip Winery at the Historic Southern Railroad Depot

Please save the date, Saturday, April 22 at 7PM-10PM for our annual special event to benefit CMC! We will have heavy hors d’oeuvres, lots of beverages, including a Blue Slip wine tasting. The amazing Chillbillies will be on hand to provide music for dancing, and we’ll also have Silent Auction items to browse and bid on. Links to purchase tickets will be coming soon. We are still accepting sponsorships which come with tickets and swag.

Purchase an unlimited number of tickets at $75 each.
CMC volunteers can purchase up to two tickets for $25 each.

Add-on: Blue Slip wine tasting: $10 for 4 tastings (4 different wines) and a glass.


It’s time for our annual holiday party once again, to be held on Tuesday, Dec 13, 6-8PM!  I can hardly believe the holidays are almost here, along with all the cooking, wrapping, traveling, and end-of-year list-making.  Joy is here, too.  We all look forward to seeing the ones we love, hugging, eating good food and raising a toast.  Our favorite mid-December ritual is our party for mediators, those who give the world so much in their work, especially those who give their time freely by volunteering for CMC.

You’ve probably gotten an email invitation already, thanks to Whitney!  CMC and TVMA will provide wine, beer and other libations, as well as cups, plates, and for those who need them (!) forks, spoons and knives!  Please sign up here  to bring a pot luck contribution.  If you only have time to stop by and say hello, that’s OK too! We want to see you.

This year our party is in a new place.  Fran Clemmons, one of our volunteers and a well-known provider of parenting seminars, has offered her special place, good for gathering and mingling:

Fountainhead College of Technology
3203 Tazewell Pike
Knoxville, TN  37918

Easy on and off Broadway or 640, plenty of parking—and you get to drive by Rita’s Bakery!  Give yourself a little time to maneuver traffic if you’ve never been in Fountain City.  It’s not hard!
