127 Seniors celebrate member's 90th birthday

CROSSVILLE — The 127 Seniors met Nov. 30 for their usual games and conversation. Wendell Lester called the bingo numbers and Dr. Galloway furnished the prizes.

Fred Zoeller opened the regular meeting with Mildred Mims giving the prayer and Gerry Mims leading the pledge to the flag. Guests for the day were Avonelle McCormack and Jean Wettlaufer.

Jan mentioned our last trip this year will be to Pigeon Forge to see the Smoky Mountain Opry Christmas Show and the Winterfest Lights. The buses will be leaving the center at 9 a.m. There are two seats available for the Tunica/Memphis trip in April 2013. The Mackinac Island trips are planned for Sept. 8-14 and Sept. 22-28.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report and please keep the following in your prayers: Jim Brennan, Frances Brown, Kathleen Zuk, Bill Bullard, Dot Conklin, Pat Mount, T.C. Lewis, Mary Hirsch and the military.

The Christmas dinner will be Dec. 14 with bingo starting at 9 a.m. Special prizes that day. Also, board members are to have their meeting at 8 a.m. that morning.

Fred reminded us that the senior center will be closed Dec. 28. Keep buying Kroger coupons, bring in items for the 127 Sale next year and bluegrass music is every Thursday evening. Dec. 7 will be the election for the 2013 officers.

We had a special birthday cake for Bob Winnie who is 90 years young.

Dennis Donald provided entertainment with his beautiful voice. Thanks, Dennis.

After the table blessing, Sharon Hilton and her kitchen helpers served the fifth Friday meal of sandwiches, soup, salads and desserts.

  • 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.
