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.

  • 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.
