Senior center honored for charitable contribution

CROSSVILLE — On Friday, Sept. 27, the 127 Senior Citizens of Cumberland County met for the regular meeting. Bingo began at 9:30 a.m., with Bob Jones calling the numbers and prizes contributed by Dr. M. Stewart Galloway of the Cumberland Eye Center of Fairfield Glade. Last week, Dr. Galloway was credited with donating the gifts in error. The correct contributor of gifts last week was Buckeye Home Health.

President Emil Neitzke called the meeting to order at 10:45 a.m., and the opening prayer was offered by Joy Moyer. Harold Moyer led the Pledge of Allegiance. Emil then welcomed Pat Wiedemann from Habitat for Humanity to speak. She described the work being done by Habitat and thanked the members for their donation of materials following the recent corridor sale. She presented a plaque to Lucy Elmore who had supervised the corridor sale, and it will be placed on their bulletin board. Thank you, Pat!

Emil then told them that the memorial service for Pat Mount was set for Saturday, Sept. 28, at the First United Methodist Church in town at 11 a.m. Emil also reminded them that Jan and the second bus that went to visit Michigan and Mackinac Island would be returning on Friday. He had heard from Jan that the weather had been beautiful for their time in Michigan. 

Sunshine lady Nancy Fincher gave her report on members that were out sick and gave an update on Ron Mansavage and Jim Visage. She also reminded members that today was the birthday of Emil Neitzke and Janice Hall.

Following the meeting, entertainment for the day was Tom Fincher, singing and playing his trombone and Cowboy Bob also singing and playing his guitar. 

Afterwards, they were escorted to lunch by Carol Kirkland and treated to a fine dinner of chicken and dumplings prepared by Anna Cox and the kitchen staff. Members enjoyed that fine dinner as well. 

Just a reminder that anyone is welcome to their meetings and for your first visit you get treated to lunch. They always welcome new members, too, and membership is reasonable, only $10 per year. They hope you’ll come join in the fun and bingo begins at 9:30 a.m. every Friday.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.

  • plateau gardening-hydrangeas5117.jpg Prune flowering shrubs: now or wait until February?

    Experts say, “Don’t prune woody-stemmed plants (shrubs, trees and some types of vines) after mid-August.” Do pay close attention to that advice. The purpose of this late-season pruning prohibition is to keep plants healthy.

  • IMG_1850.jpg Burgess Falls offers a big payoff for a short hike

    At Burgess Falls, you can be out of your car and taking in the breathtaking view of the Falling Water River as it falls 136 feet in the third and final drop of the river with just a short walk through the woods.
    But even though the state park is close to civilization, this natural wonder retains its wild and scenic reputation.
