Seniors ready to travel

CROSSVILLE — Members of the 127 Senior Citizens Center met Oct. 5 for conversation, snacks, bingo and dominos. Arlene Simmons was the bingo caller, with the prizes furnished by members of the center.

Fred Zoeller, president, called the business meeting to order. Betty Barrett gave the prayer, followed by Cathy Slager with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.

Jan Neitzke gave her report and mentioned that everyone should be at the center by 7 a.m. Monday for the trip to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. The trip to the historic Ryman Auditorium will be Nov. 6, and they plan on leaving at 2:30 p.m. The final trip for the year will be Dec. 11 to the Smoky Mountain Opry's Christmas Show in Pigeon Forge. Money for this trip is due Oct. 26, and the cost is $65.

There will be a trip to Mackinaw Island in September 2013. The first bus is full. So Jan has booked a second bus, and there are seats available on it. Give her a call if you are interested.

The Thanksgiving dinner will be Nov. 16 and will cost $7. The Christmas dinner sign-up sheet is out so you can sign up and pay $5 at any time.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report and asked everyone to remember Pat Mount, Dot Conklin, Shirley Jernigan, Pat Gambacccini, T.C. Lewis, Emil Nietzke and the military in their prayers.

Sandy Devine announced birthdays and anniversaries. With Gwen Flynn playing the piano, everyone serenaded the group with "Happy Birthday" and "Happy Anniversary."

Remember to keep buying Kroger coupons and to bring items for the 127 yard sale for 2013. Bring items to the center or call if you have large items for them pick up. The next game day will be Oct. 23. Bluegrass will be performed at the center each Thursday. So come and join the fun.

Tom Fincher announced the next Music of the Cumberlands will be Oct. 30, at 6:30 p.m. at the Palace Theatre. A great program is planned, so come and enjoy. The cost is $10 and can be purchased at the Palace.

The guest artists of the day were Sandy and Paul Thomas and  Judy Kistler. It was a great show. After dinner prayer, led by Bob Jones, Jan and her staff served a delicious harvest dinner.

  • 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.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
