You might have noticed the new “Historic 4th and Gill Neighborhood” street signs that have been installed over the past few weeks. The effort was lead by a fundraising committee, including Katy Hawley, Joe Miles, Kaye Osborne, Sue Russell, Brent Waugh, and Melynda and Bob Whetsel.
Not only did the neighborhood surpass its goal of $8,000 needed to purchase the signs, we did so in only three weeks—a week earlier than planned. As a result, the City of Knoxville was able to install nearly all the signs by early April, in time for the 2018 Home Tour.
We reached our goal through nearly 50 gifts of all sizes—thank you to the supporters who made Fourth and Gill’s historic district street signs possible, including:
Gabrielle Boudreau and Gordon Coker Thomas Boyd
Sam Crockett Howard Cyr and Katy Hawley
Nick Della Volpe Elisabeth and Scott Dossey
