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.

  • 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.
