127 Seniors enjoy food, fun and fellowship

On June 28, members gathered together at the 127 South Senior Center to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They played billiards, dominos and bingo, with Arlene Simmons calling the numbers. The bingo prizes were furnished by Dr. M. Stewart Galloway, ophthalmologist. Home Health Care came and took complimentary blood pressure readings for the seniors.

The general meeting was opened by the president, Emil Neitzke, at 10:35 a.m., with Bob Jones giving the opening prayer and leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Members were advised that there will be no get-together Friday, July 5.

Again, please remember to not use glass covers for hot dishes brought in to the kitchen; only aluminum foil as a cover. This is in compliance with the health department.

Marietta Dion and Sallye Sykes are still collecting $5 per person for the annual picnic, which will be held at Obed Park on July 19.

Everyone who is going on the day trip to the Hollow Day Lily Farm on July 9 are requested to be at the center at 7:45 a.m., with the bus leaving at 8:15 a.m.

The corridor sale is coming shortly. Lucy Elmore and Annie Lewis passed their volunteer lists so members could sign up to help with the sale.

Sunshine Lady Nancy Fincher gave her report on all the sick members, which she keeps in touch with weekly, requesting that everyone keep them in their prayers as well as the military personnel.

The entertainment was provided by the talented Tony Zarola, who sang and played guitar. After the table blessing, all enjoyed a delicious chicken and dumpling meal prepared by Anna Cox and her kitchen help, with salads and desserts furnished by the members.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • 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.
