Saxton helps 127 Seniors bring in new year

CROSSVILLE — The first meeting of the 127 Senior Center for the year 2013 was held Friday, Jan. 4. Many members played bingo beginning at 9:30 a.m., with prizes donated by Quality Health Care.

Following bingo, they had the installation of the new officers and board members for the new year. The installation was conducted by the Rev. Jerry Mayo of Pomona United Methodist Church. Officers installed were President Emil Neitzke, Vice President Mary Borman, Treasurer Jan Neitzke, Secretary Elaine Mumme, Assistant Secretary Lucy Elmore and new board members Ted Mumme and SaIIye Sykes.

They welcomed a new member, Becky Moles, and greeted guests Gary and Lucy Winger, friends of Ginny Herbert.

Jan gave the treasurer's report and announced the next trip would be to Renfro Valley March 9. Cost is $65 and due by next Friday. In May, she will schedule a tour of the Sutton General Store, built in 1902, and a tour of the museum, Pioneer ViIIage and concluding with dinner and a bluegrass show. Cost of this trip is $55. She also asked the members if they would like to see a comedy at the Cumberland County Playhouse in November called Sweet Surrender, followed by dinner at Gondola Restaurant. The cost is not available at this time. The members heartily approved.

Following the meeting, members€ were entertained by Frank Saxton, who sang and played the saxophone, accompanied by Catherine Munkelwitz on the keyboard. They really enjoyed his smooth sounds and wonderful easy listening music. He is a newcomer to the area, having moved here from Las Vegas, where he played with many familiar and famous music stars.

Remember the trips are open to non-members as well as members. So if you are interested, please call Jan Neitzke and get your name on the list before all the spots are taken. You can reach her at 788-3667.

  • 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.
