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.

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.
