Date changes for Corvette assembly plant tour in March

CROSSVILLE — The 127 Senior Center members gathered together Friday, Feb. 7, to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They played billiards, dominos and bingo, with Arlene Simmons calling the numbers and the prizes furnished by Quality Health Care. Correction: Last week the gifts were furnished by the Life Care Center of Crossville. Sorry.

Fred Zoeller, president, opened the general meeting, with Arlene Simmons saying the opening prayer and Tom Simmons leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Jan Neitzke gave her report on the following trips: the Corvette Assembly Plant Tour has been changed from March 12 to March 19 due to a conflict the company did not anticipate and the Wisconsin trip for June 8-14 was brought to the public’s attention via the Crossville Chronicle (see the Feb. 7 issue).

There are a number of the members that are on the sick list including Nancy Fincher, Jim Savage, Sandy Devine (and her best friend), Dottie Conklin, Carl Brooks and Charles Ferguson. Please keep them in your prayers and also do not forget the brave military who are keeping the country safe.

Mary Brown, birthday lady, announced all the February birthdays, and all the members sang “ Happy Birthday,” with Gwen Flynn on the piano. Fred welcomed visitor Louise Mullinex. The kitchen help bulletin board was passed for March being February is all full. Fred also showed the members how to exercise by walking around the block — great idea — it was a “concrete block.” LOL

The wonderful entertainment was provided by Gene Brown and the Cumberland Mountain Boys. The members are always happy when they see Gene and his “boys” come in with their instruments. They are like family, and they also play every Thursday evening at the center.

After the dinner prayer, a delicious meal was served by Mary McClure and her helpers Gladys and Sally, with side dishes and desserts furnished by the members. Also, assisting was Anna Cox, who is the leader in the kitchen. Have a wonderful and blessed week.

  • 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.
