127 Seniors prepare for Corridor Sale

CROSSVILLE — On Friday, June 13, the board meeting was held. In attendance were Lucy Elmore, Freddie Whitaker, Jan Neitzke, Sally Sykes, Gary Schellinger, Marietta Dion, Barbara Neely and Elaine Mumme. Absent were Ted Mumme and Bob Jones.

Fred Zoeller, president, opened the meeting, with Lucy Elmore saying a prayer. Minutes were read and approved by Jan Neitzke and seconded by Sally Sykes.

Under old business, Fred asked that a credit application be submitted to the Chronicle so they can have an account with them for future advertising or such. Jan has the application and she will submit same.

A new sign for the 127 Corridor Sale was discussed as follows: a 4x8 metal sign with two sides cost $250 each and the 4x8 corrugated sign with two sides will be $100 each. The sign would have eight-inch letters, with the first line reading "127 Corridor Sale;" the second line reading "Breakfast 7:00am-10:00am;" the third line saying "Lunch 11:00am -2:00pm;" and the fourth line saying "Thursday, Friday and Saturday." All in attendance agreed on the corrugated sign. Elaine made a motion to purchase a sign, and Marietta seconded. Jan will bring the above plan to Signsmith Company. Fred stated that the sign should be put up the evening before the sale, which would be Wednesday, Aug. 6.

The problem with the flooding of the building on the south side is being looked into by Fred as soon as possible.

Jan advised that the piano was tuned with a cost of $120.18. Jan bought and got the pulled pork ready for the Corridor Sale with the help of Lucy Elmore and Anna Cox. Anna Cox is in charge of the kitchen for the sale. A sign-up sheet was passed around for assistance in helping with the breakfasts and lunches.

Jan made a motion to adjourn the meeting, which was seconded by Marietta.

  • 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.
