Stories shared at 127 South Senior Center

CROSSVILLE — The 127 South Seniors met Nov. 16 for their usual games, sweets, coffee and conversation. Arlene Simmons called the numbers, and Buckeye Home Health furnished the prizes. President Fred Zoeller opened the regular meeting, with Mary Brown giving the prayer and Gene Brown leading the pledge to the flag.

Jan Neitzke gave the treasurer's report for Oct. and mentioned the last trip for the year will be Dec. 11. They will be going to Pigeon Forge to see the Smoky Mountain Opry Christmas Show and the Winterfest lights. The buses will be leaving the senior center at 9 a.m. Next year's trips to Mackinac lsland will be Sept. 8-14 and Sept. 22-28. Another trip for next year will be to Memphis/Tunica, and the cost is $375 for five days. Don't forget the Christmas dinner will be Dec. 14, and there is a sign-up sheet at the center.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report and asked everyone to keep the following in their prayers: Mary Hirsch, Frances Brown, Helen Schilling, Bill Bullard, Kathleen Zuk, Sheila Borchers, Jim Brennan, Dot Conklin, Pat Mount, T.C.Lewis, the military and the victims of Hurricare Sandy.

Two new members were welcomed: Marie Carlson and Joseph Simmons. Betty and Mike Roe provided the entertainment. They are great storytellers and they sing and play ballads. After the table blessing, Jan Neitzke and her kitchen helpers served a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.

There will be no meeting Nov. 23 at the center. Do not forget the fifth Friday this month and to bring in sandwiches, salads and desserts. The next game day will be Nov. 27 and remember to pay next year's dues if you want your name in the membership book. Keep bringing in items for the 127 yard sale and buying Kroger coupons. Also, the election for new officers will be Dec. 7.

  • 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.
