All the other trips are posted in the meeting room, or call Jan for more information at 788-3667.

Do not forget to sign up for the picnic, which is July 18. Next week for lunch, the center will furnish the soup and the members will furnish sandwiches, salads and desserts. Nancy Fincher, the Sunshine Lady, reported on all the sick and or recovering members. They all are wished a speedy recovery and are in all their prayers. This weekend is Memorial Day. Please keep your military men and women in your prayers. Also, a big thanks goes to all the veterans who made it possible that we live in a free country. God bless every one of our brave military women and men. And remember all the military who gave their life for you and your country.

The two new members, Shirley Whitaker and Wanda Whittenburg, were welcomed to the center.

There was a birthday singing for Dottie Bickel’s birthday and all enjoyed the lovely birthday cake that was furnished by Dottie’s children. May you have many, more, Dottie.

Tom Fincher presented the entertainment, Southern Pride Band and “Cowboy Bob” (Bob Johnson). All enjoyed their songs from country, gospel and rock- n- roll. Thanks, guys.

After the dinner prayer a delicious pork roast was prepared by Denise Acquista with her helpers, Anna Cox, Rita Varney and Phyllis Jones. The members furnished the side dishes and desserts. Have a blessed and safe week.

  • 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.
