    - The Kingsport Town Center (formerly Fort Henry Mall) and the Sullivan County Humane Society are partnering to present a community dog wash to benefit SNIP (Spay/Neuter Impact Program), a low cost spay neuter program for companion animals in Sullivan County. Wash-N-Wag will offer dog washes for dogs up to 100 lbs for an $8 donation and a $12 donation for dogs over 100 lbs.

    On August 15th, media sponsor 98.5 WTFM / 102.7 WVEK will be broadcasting live from the Kingsport Town Center spreading the important message of pet spay & neuter and helping to raise money for SNIP. You can come by to donate to the Sullivan County Humane Society, collect educational materials on having a pet in your family, as well as adopt a dog or puppy from the SBK-Kingsport and Blountville Animal Shelters. The humane society will also have a “Kissing Booth” where you can get happy puppy kisses! Local breed specific rescue groups will on hand to educate on the importance of re-homing and will have information about how to foster or adopt. We will also have information about SNIP low cost spay & neuter and how to become an active volunteer with the Sullivan County Humane Society. The 6th Annual “Wash-n-Wag” is sponsored by the Kingsport Town Center, The Friendship Family of Dealerships, 98.5 WTFM / 102.7 WVEK, Food City Paws and Claws Pet Club, and OmniSource Recycling.

    Join us for the 6th Annual Wash-N-Wag at the Kingsport Town Center (lower parking lot at the intersection of Fort Henry Drive and Memorial Boulevard) on Saturday, August 15th from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Load up the dog and come on down for an afternoon of fun and information, dog washing and tail wagging!

    The Sullivan County Humane Society's goal is to advance the humane treatment of animals, primarily companion pets, through spay/neuter services, adoption promotion, and animal welfare education. Since 2010, the humane society's Spay Neuter Impact Program (SNIP) has assisted in the low cost spay/neuter of companion animals currently in homes. Pet overpopulation is the biggest problem facing companion animals in our area. SNIP is funded 100% by donations, grants and volunteer fund-raising activities.

    - In many of the countries where Doctors Without Borders/ Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) works, a shocking number of women and children die each day from preventable deaths. Although we know how to prevent the transmission of HIV from HIV-positive mothers to their babies, over 700 newborns are brought into this world each day with the transmitted virus. Join us for a discussion with local MSF OBGYN field worker, Durell Hiller, on some of the most vital but often neglected areas of women's health and what still needs to be done to address the medical needs of women and children around the world as he shares his experiences of working in Nigeria and South Sudan.

  • | All Day | NATL - National Holidays
    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world
