127 Seniors travel to Grand Canyon in October

CROSSVILLE — The 127 South Seniors met Sept. 28 for their usual games, coffee, sweets and conversation. Wendell Lester called the bingo numbers and Dr. Galloway furnished the prizes.

President Fred Zoeller opened the regular meeting with Janice Clingerman giving the prayer, followed by Bob Jones leading the pledge to the flag.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report and please pray for the following: Joy Moyer, Louise Visage, Toy Smith, Bea Stamper, Kathleen Zuk, Dot Conklin, Pat Mount, Betty Slopey, and our military.

Jan Neitzke reminded everyone about several trips:

Grand Canyon in October — the bus will leave the senior center at 8 a.m.

Oct. 5 - Harvest dinner, cost is $5.

Nov. 6 — Trip to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium; the bus leaves the center at 2:30 p.m.

Nov. 16 — Thanksgiving dinner, $7 per person.

Dec. 11 — Trip to Pigeon Forge to see the Smoky Mountain Opry Christmas Show, cost is $65 and is due Oct. 26.

Mackinaw Island, Sept. 2013 — a waiting list is available.

October 23 is the next game day.

Oct. 30 is the next Music of the Cumberlands, a fundraiser for the senior center. Tickets are available at the Palace Theatre for $10 each.

Fred reminded everyone to keep buying Kroger coupons, bring in items from the 127 yard sale, and to enjoy Bluegrass music at the senior center.

Jay David was the program for the day. He has a beautiful voice and everyone enjoyed the "old" songs.

After the table blessing, Virginia Herbert and her kitchen helpers served meatloaf along with sides, which were brought in by members.

  • 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.
