Piecemakers donate beautiful quilt to 127 Seniors

CROSSVILLE — The members of the 127 South Senior had another terrific day (June 7) at the 127 South Cumberland Senior Center, socializing, playing billiards, dominos and playing bingo, with Arlene Simmons calling in the numbers. Bingo prizes were provided by Quality Health Care, who also checked  their blood pressures.

The general meeting was opened by President Emil Neitzke at 10:35 a.m., with Jean Wettlaufer giving the opening prayer and Bob Jones leading the Pledge of Allegiance. The members were shown the beautiful quilt the Cumberland County Piecemakers donated to the center. It is just gorgeous with beautiful butterflies on it. They thank the Piecemakers for their generous donation. There will be a drawing for the quilt at the 127 Corridor Sale this August.

Some of the members and guests are packing and getting ready for their trip to the UK. Everyone wishes them a wonderful trip.

Jan Neitzke gave her trip reports: the July 9 trip to Hollow Day Lily Farm (they also have a variety of hostas) has a few seats available and includes a guided wagon tour and lunch in the pavilion. The Aug. 13 day trip to the Jack Daniels Distillery with lunch at Miss Bo-Bo’s Boarding House Restaurant has three seats available. The Sept. 22-28 trip to Mackinac Island, which includes a carriage ride, sightseeing in Sault St. Marie, Kewadin Sault Casino plus many more fun things to do, has six seats available. The day trip to Dollywood on Oct. 8 is sold out. The trip to the Cumberland County Playhouse with dinner at Gondola Restaurant has a few seats open, which is on Nov. 26. The last trip for this year will be to see the Rockettes in Nashville. If interested in any of the above trips, see or call Jan at 788-3667. She also has a waiting list for the full trips.

The corridor sale is just around the corner. So bring your items to the center, or if it is too big, just call 484-2547 for pickup.

Nancy Fincher, the Sunshine Lady, gave her report on all the sick members, requesting that everyone keep them in their prayers as well as the military.

Mary Brown, the Birthday Lady, announced all the birthdays and anniversaries in June, and everyone sang “Happy Birthday” with Gwen Flynn playing the piano.

Lucy Elmore, the chairman of the corridor sale, announced she will be passing around a sign-up sheet next week for those who want to volunteer with the corridor sale.

Jan also gave a sneak preview on a trip she is planning in 2014. It will be for nine days and eight nights to Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont probably in September. So put this on your “bucket” list for next year.

The wonderful entertainment was provided by Sandy Thomas and Judy Fistler singing the “good ole oldies” and Paul Thomas playing the harmonica. After the dinner prayer, all enjoyed a delicious meal made by the kitchen with salads and desserts provided by the members.

    Every Wednesday after 1 p.m. from May through October, there is a steady stream of people converging on the kitchen of Heritage Hall on Church St. in Pleasant Hill with baskets and bags. Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.
