History of JCCC - Book Sale
The Historical and Centennial Committees has published the book, "Johnson City Country Club: The First 100 Years" in late October 2012 for sale and distribution in time for holiday gift-giving season.
The book is the result of four years of research and preparation by a twelve-member committee that has contributed thousands of hours researching and interviewing several hundred members (past and present), member descendants, local citizens, city and county officials, and local historians.
The result is a hardbound book of up to 120 pages that includes black & white and color photos, drawings, sketches and maps - many of which have never been seen by the membership. Of special interest is the compelling story of the Club's founding and growth and the people who made it possible. The history of the Johnson City Country Club are inseparably tied to the history and development of the City of Johnson City and East Tennessee and Appalachia. The book describes these relationships as well as those with East Tennessee state University, nationally known celebrities, and details of activities of "Cynthia", the Clubhouse's friendly ghost.
This will be a limited edition printing and is being offered to the membership now before it is offered for sale on the open market. To insure your personal copy and gift copies are reserved please contact Katrina Borden in the Club office at 975-5520. She will arrange to have $75.00 (or $15.00 over 5 months) billed to your account for each copy. The monthly payment program was designed by the Committees to eliminate the need for any Club financing. You can also click on the link below and print an order form for the book.
