The Caney Fork Chapter of the American Red Cross is being disbanded and the counties within it are being incorporated into other chapters. American Red Cross restructuring in Tennessee is reducing the number of chapters across the state in an effort to keep up with the demand for financial assistance.Warren County’s chapter will be part of the American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee and the position held by longtime director Kathy Nesmith is being eliminated. Nesmith has been the local Red Cross director for 12 years and was among a regional group of disaster relief experts who went to New York City in the aftermath of 9-11.According to American Red Cross regional communication director Benjamin Prijatel, the office in Warren County will remain open.“The office is not shutting down,” said Prijatel.
