Volunteerism Shines at The 2014 Happiest Community of the Year
Knoxville, Tennessee (PRWEB) December 20, 2014
Residents living in one of the best waterfront retirement communities in Tennessee put a lot of thought and effort into giving as volunteers. To kick off the holiday season, the participating Villagers of Tellico Village received recognition for their volunteer initiatives with a celebration and awards ceremony. The caring and sharing mentality goes a long way in the community near The Smokies.
On November 19, 2014, the residents gathered around at the Property Owners Association’s President’s and Honors Awards Ceremony. Twenty-four nominees held their heads high as their community thanked them for their dedicated initiatives in five categories. These volunteers were recognized for volunteering in social, recreational, environmental, management and service-related programs in Monroe and Loudon counties. The winners are:
Community Service Award
Hugh and Jody Brashear

Sharon Addison, Karen Brown, Claire Moxim, and Lynne Pecze
Citizen Observer Patrol (COP)
Dan Dyer and Jim Marotta (Mr. Marotta received his award earlier before he passed away)

Outstanding Individual Award
Sam McQueeney (Ms. McQueeney received four nominations – a new record)
POA President Alan Hart presented the prestigious President's Award for exemplary service to the community to:
AWE Hospitality – Andy Fox and the Yacht Club team
When living in the Knoxville suburbs, many Villagers chose to lend a helping hand to their surrounding communities and to make a positive impact for years to come. This ceremony and the efforts of these volunteers show how caring Tellico Village can be for retirees interested in relocating to Tennessee.
Volunteer programs and organizations are an active part of Tellico Village. In fact, more than 400 volunteers! This friendly community located near The Smokies seamlessly enjoys incorporating their social activities with volunteer initiatives. Folks interested in relocating to Tennessee won’t want to miss meeting the 2014 Happiest Community of the Year during the holidays to see what they’re up to next. Just recently, The Tellico Village Woodworkers Club participated in the Toys-For-Tots Program. This annual event occurs every December, and the members of this social club at Tellico Village get to show off their talents and make children happy at the same time.
These gifted volunteers built and donated more than 7,650 wooden toys from 2008 to 2014! The woodworkers create wooden horses, trucks, helicopters and more and then present them to Loudon County Sheriff. Both the woodworkers and Loudon County Sheriff coordinate the program, and help bring joy to the children living in the Knoxville suburbs. This club along with the 60 other social clubs bring happiness and cheer outside their private gates every season – It’s no wonder why this community won Real Estate Scorecard’s 2014 Bliss Award for Happiness Community of the Year!
