127 Seniors wowed by Christmas skit, song

CROSSVILLE — Again on Dec. 13, the members of the 127 South Senior Center gathered to play dominos and billiards. This week was their Christmas party, so there were special Christmas prizes for the bingo games and other prizes furnished by Bob Folger of State Farm Insurance. The bingo caller, "Mrs. Tinker" (aka Arlene Simmons), called the numbers with her "demure" personality.

Emil Neitzke, president, opened the general meeting, with Bob Jones saying the opening prayer and Fred Zoeller (Santa in PJs) leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Emil explained the process that was used in electing the 2014 officers at the last meeting.

Fred Zoeller passed the kitchen help list for people to sign up for future Fridays.

Jan Neitzke reminded everyone who is going on the Maine-Vermont trip that their deposit of $100 is due Jan. 3. Also, the New Orleans trip's money is due Jan. 17. The first trip of 2014 — the Corvette assembly plant — monies of $42 are due Jan. 10. They will be going to see the "living tree" in Knoxville Dec. 21.

Members exchanged gifts, with "Mrs. Tinker" and Santa passing out the gifts.

Nancy Fincher, sunshine lady, reported on all the sick members and informed them that Charlie Ferguson should be coming home before Christmas. Keep all the sick members in your prayers. Please do not forget to keep the military in your prayers, too.

The entertainment was provided by a very well-known duo, D.J. and Donna Garrison. They did an enjoyable skit with the "12 Days of Christmas," with "Edward" sending the 12 items of the song to "Emily," who was just beside herself with all the animals, etc. lt was great. They closed the hour with D.J. singing "O Holy Night" was beautiful. Thanks, guys.

After the dinner prayer, the members had a delicious Christmas dinner catered by Beef and Barrel Restaurant. Until next time have a blessed and wonderful week.

    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.
