DAR to present Tennessee Women Brunch May 4

CROSSVILLE — Believe it or not, spring flowers will be blooming in abundance at the Cumberland Mountain State Park Recreation Lodge on May 4. The beautiful, rustic, stone and cedar lodge, located next to the state park pool, is the setting for the Tennessee Women Brunch, Style Show and Silent Auction, sponsored by the Crab-Orchard Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution.

Ladies of Cumberland County will want to buy their tickets early for this festive and “country chic” event of the season. Not only will guests be treated to a delicious and bountiful brunch, they will have the opportunity to be introduced to and be served by several famous “Tennessee women” of great acclaim, some who are well-known and some, though highly accomplished, not so well-known.

Pat Summitt, Dolly Parton and Minnie Pearl you will recognize, but others —May Justus, Feb Burn, Nancy Ward and other notable Tennessee women —will also be there to entertain and serve you. Although not a Tennessee lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, who was instrumental in the establishment of the Homesteads and the state park and who visited the area in the 1930s during her husband’s administration, has also been invited to the brunch.

Two other featured events during the Tennessee Women Brunch are the fashion show of current styles at Jones New York and Kasper and the silent auction of several items ladies just cannot resist.

Tickets for the brunch are available from members of the Crab-Orchard Chapter DAR for $15 or by contacting Jean Wright at 456-6861.

    Every Wednesday after 1 p.m. from May through October, there is a steady stream of people converging on the kitchen of Heritage Hall on Church St. in Pleasant Hill with baskets and bags. Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

    Garry, a new resident in Crossville, emailed to ask how to gather a soil sample and where to take it to have testing done. Your local University of Tennessee Extension office is the place to go. Those in the Crossville area should call UT Extension Cumberland County at 484-6743. A staff person at the office can explain how to collect soil samples. (Those new in town who may not know where the Extension office is located may also call for driving directions.)

  • 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.
