127 Seniors welcome three new members

CROSSVILLE — The members of the 127 South Senior Center gathered last Friday for coffee and fellowship. Arlene Simmons started calling bingo at 9 a.m. Dr. Stewart Galloway's office furnished the bingo prizes, and they thanked them for supporting the seniors. Christy from Quality Home Health did blood pressure checks for us. Thanks, Christy.

Fred Zoeller, the newly elected president, called the meeting to order. Mildren Mims did the prayer, and Jerry, her husband, led the Pledge of Allegiance.

New members were welcomed: Joan Skinner, Sue Heinrechs and Linda Ruckner. Welcome! They are always pleased to have new members.

Members feeling under the weather were Kay Ballew, Carl Brooks, Carol Kirkland and Toy Smith. It was reported that Sandy Divine and Nancy Fincher are much better.

The entertainment was provided by Southern Pride. They did a great job and the seniors were glad to welcome them back.

Jan did the trip report, and they have a trip to Wisconsin Dells set for June 8-13. It will be six days and five nights featuring the Wisconsin Opry, Cave of the Mounds, House on the Rock ultimate experience, Circus World Museum, Cheese Factory tour and much more. Cost is $675 per person for double occupancy. Deposit is due Feb. 24. You don't have to be a member to travel with them. For more details call Jan at 788-3667.

Until next time, God bless.

  • 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.
