Cheyenne entertains 127 South Seniors

CROSSVILLE — On Friday, June 20, the members of the 127 South Senior Center gathered together to play dominos and bingo, which was called by Helen Lord, and the bingo gifts were furnished by Buckeye Home Health. The general meeting was called to order by Fred Zoeller, president, with Arlene Simmons saying the opening prayer and Gene Brown leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Sunshine Lady Nancy Fincher announced all the sick members and those recovering from surgery and asked that they be kept in everyone's prayers. Also, remember all the brave military and the veterans.

Fred introduced the guests, Jane Eroh and Sue Allred. Welcome!

Do not forget to bring in items for the 127 Corridor Sale. The picnic will be July 18. Sign up before June 27. There will be wonderful food and great bingo prizes. Come on out for a fun day at Obed Park, which will start at 9 a.m.

Fred announced the kitchen help for the week, and Annie Lewis asked for more help in the kitchen for the 127 Corridor Sale. So come and sign up to support the organization and have fun.

This writer failed to recognize the great Tommy Dee last week, who provided the entertainment Friday, June 13. He is always a delight and did you know that he had a number one hit, “Heart, Body and Soul"? Gene Brown filled in to give him a breather with a few gospel songs. Thanks for a good time.

This week they had the wonderful and very talented young lady Cheyenne as their entertainer. Cheyenne sang all great songs that the members recognized. Would you believe some members even danced? Thanks, Cheyenne, for a most enjoyable time.

After the dinner prayer, which was sung by Bob Jones, a delicious dinner was prepared by Lorraine Harvey with her helpers Anna Cox, Marietta Dion and Velma Pauley, with the members furnishing the side dishes and desserts.

By the way, Jan Neitzke has put out a new trip for 2015 to St. Augustine, Amelia Island, Jacksonville, FL, and more for seven days and six nights. It will be March 22-28, 2015, at the cost of $625. More details will be announced, or call Jan 788-3667.

  • 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.
