Council 645 is "The Original Knoxville Council." We draw our support from Immaculate Conception, Holy Ghost, and
John XXIII Parishes. You may contact Council 645 via our general Email address firstname.lastname@example.org. We invite you to
visit our council website at www.korrnet.org/kc645.
Council 645 is part of District #15. Our District Deputy is Russ Carvin (865) 531-8349 email@example.com.
Council business meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month at Shea Hall, 6515 Millertown Pike (Approximately 1.5 miles northeast of Knoxville Center prior East Town Mall). Both meetings begin at 7:00PM.
Our Council is over 100 years old and we were honored to host the 2002 State Convention in Knoxville from May 2-5, 2002. Our Council supports St. Joseph School throughout the year in various activities. Council 645 may be unique in Tennessee because we have a motorcycle division. We continue to support the Sertoma Center and Sunshine Industries. We are committed to support the Knoxville Columbus Home; a home for abused and neglected children which our Council was instrumental in forming. Finally, our Council is presently working to reactivate our Columbian Squire Circle.
