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.

  • 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.
