Lucas and Friends show sells out

CROSSVILLE — A special thank you goes out to Ruth and Wayne Lucas for a great job on the fourth annual Lucas and Friends Christmas Show. They certainly got a sold-out crowd in the Christmas mood. Everyone is hearing it gets better every year. This was the best one yet. It really was a good show. Thanks to all the talent and folks who bought the tickets. Maybe next year you will be lucky enough to get a ticket early.

Fair Park offers a lot of active programs, like the line dancers that were in a lot of the scenes in the Christmas show. They really added a lot of neat action. The Crossville Kickers (the Fair Park Line dancers) will be having a New Years Eve Dance and Party on Tuesday, Dec. 31. Of course, there will be a lot of line dancing going on, but also if you would like to waltz or do some two-stepping, everyone is welcome to join them to ring in the new year. Just bring some snacks to share and your favorite non-alcoholic drink. It is $5 per person. The party will start at 7 p.m. This group usually meets every Thursday night with dance Instructors Ann and her husband, Don Weaver. Elizabeth Haywood leads the class on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m.

This Friday, Dec. 27, Cowboy Wetwood Dalton will be entertaining the seniors with his fun songs and gentle humor. You are invited; be there by 9:45 a.m. Bingo will be furnished by the United Grocery Outlet and Anthony Woolbright.

The Fair Park Senior Center is a nonprofit 501(c) organization and always welcomes monetary donations to provide programs for seniors. The center will be closed Dec. 24, 25 and 26 for Christmas and for Jan 1.

The Fair Park Senior Center is at 1433 Livingston Rd., across from the fairgrounds. It is open to seniors Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with some evening classes. Check out the website to learn more at or call 484-7416.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
