127 Seniors plan monthly trips

CROSSVILLE — The senior citizens of 127 South met April 6, with President Fred Zoeller opening the meeting. Prior to the meeting, bingo was played. Gifts were furnished by Quality Health Care, with a nurse present doing blood pressure readings before bingo. Members thanked the wonderful people who furnished gifts. Bill Bullard called the bingo numbers.

Lucy Elmore gave the opening prayer, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, led by Betty Barnett. Guests were Shirley Seifert and Kathleen Zuk's granddaughter, Katie. They also welcomed back Pete and Betty Thompson, their "snowbirds."

Jan Neitzke reported on the trips. There is one for every month. Four are sold out: NashTrash mystery trip for April 19; Savannah, GA trip for May 21-25; Grand Ole Opry day trip for Sept 21; and Grand Ole Opry Show for Nov. 6. You can reach Jan at 788-3667 for any information.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report and asked members to remember Evelyn Dye, Frank Knapp, Bob Jones, Betty Slopey, T.C. Lewis, Carol Kirkland, Dot Conklin and Doris Fraser in your prayers. Rita Marvin requested prayer for her son, Donald Rocke, and two of her grandchildren.

Sandy Devine called out the birthdays. Only four were present: Mary Kirsch, Jan Neitzke, Janice Clingerman and Carol Kirkland. They marked the anniversary of John and Sheila Borcher, 37 years. Gwen Flynn played the piano for celebrants. Rachel Schellinger was the lucky winner of the drawing held each week.

Entertainment was the multi-talented Tom Fincher. He sang, played different instruments and even tossed in a joke or two.

The center is mainly self-supported, and members greatly appreciate anyone who can volunteer to work there. The kitchen ladies always do a great job of getting the dinner out and the clean-up that comes afterward.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.
