Fair Park Senior Ctr. thankful for VECustomers Share sponsorship

CROSSVILLE — The CustomersShare program is a very well-known and greatly appreciated program for area non-profits.  Customers of Volunteer Energy Cooperative participate in the VECustomers Share by having their bills are rounded up to the next highest dollar. The amount is then placed into the VECustomers Share fund to support projects that benefit communities in the Volunteer Energy Cooperative service area. Fair Park has been a recipient of numerous grants from the VECustomersShare program that have been instrumental in improving programs such as the adult day services program, craft classes, computer lab, and more.

According to the VEC, although each average VEC customer contributes about $6 per year (and never more than $11.88 annually), thousands of dollars each month are distributed to community groups each month as a result of this generosity.

Scout troops, youth sports, senior citizens groups, PTAs, and civic groups are examples of the types of organizations that benefit from VECustomers Share funds.

You can learn more about the CustomersShare program by going online to to VEC’s website at http://www.vec.org/.

November will be a great month at Fair Park to take part in programs that will improve your health and lifestyle – stay tuned! To keep informed about Fair Park’s activities and to learn about its corporate partnerships, you can visit the Center Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit the Center’s website at http://www.fairparkseniorcenter.org to keep up-to-date on the latest programs and activities that are being offered as well as on-line versions of the Center’s monthly newsletter “Newsline.”

  • 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.
