William had served the Knoxville Chapter as President during 2008-2009, so we were happy to join the celebration. Nine Knoxville representatives were able to head to Chattanooga and enjoyed an evening with our Chattanooga colleagues at the Five Wits Brewing Company, as Kenny Tyler, Chattanooga President, led the awards ceremony. Our own Gary Bergeron received a Technical Award for his excellent technical articles published in the ChattaData.

The CSI Chapter saw firsthand the power of electricity and water through a hands on demonstration by experienced crew members from KUB in the parking lot of the AGC Building.

CSI Goes Cruising for Christmas

Posted: Tue, Jan 30 2024

The Knoxville CSI Chapter took a cruise down the Tennessee River for our Christmas Celebration on the Volunteer Princess. Over 50 CSI members and their guests enjoyed the 2 hour dinner cruise decked out in their Holiday garb. We were honored to have special guests from the East Tennessee Design Center, Duane Grieve & Jan Mosadegh, join us for the festivities.

Our Fun Committee created games to play & prizes to be won. Check out the prize on Geoffery's head.

We collected Toys for Tots again this year, a tradition started by then president Curtis Rosenbaum in 1997. These toys were delivered to the Marine Base the following day, and were greeted with great gratitude. Many, many children were blessed.

Lots of fun, food and fellowship, old friends and new. A Merry Christmas was to be had by all.
