Playhouse actors deliver stunning performance

CROSSVILLE — On Feb. 14, the 127 Senior Center members gathered to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They played billiard, dominos and bingo, which was called by Helen Lord, and the gifts were provided by Bob Folger, State Farm Insurance.

Fred Zoeller, president, opened the general meeting, with Lou Bullard saying the opening prayer and Bill Bullard leading in the Pledge of Allegiance. Jan Neitzke gave her treasurer's report. Jan also had the information on the November and December day trips. On Nov. 5, the day trip to see Country Tonight Theater, a variety show (Christmas theme) in Pigeon Forge at 3 p.m. EST. It will include dinner at $65. The bus will leave at 10 a.m. Money is due Sept. 15. Also, on Dec. 13 to see Christmas in the Valley at Renfro Valley at 2 p.m. EST with dinner. Cost is $70. The seats are great — they are center stage ones. They will leave at 8 a.m. Money due is Nov. 1.

The July 9 Tennessee River Gorge Boat Ride is sold out, as well as the Sept. 20-28 trip to Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. They are looking for a few more to go with them on the wonderful and beautiful Wisconsin trip, which will be June 8-14. The House on the Rock is a remarkable and outstanding house to see — it is definitely a one of a kind. Call Jan for more information at 788-3667.

Fred welcomed a new member, Louise Mullinex, and also a visitor, James Vegan. Fred passed out the call list to designated members and also the anniversary list to be updated by members.

Members were advised that game day will be Feb. 18. It will be $3 for lunch and to play games. So members, come and enjoy a day out. If you do not want lunch, just come to have fun.

Sunshine Lady Nancy Fincher is still not feeling good, and her cheerful greetings and smile are truly missed. All members wish her well and hope to see her back real soon. Also, Charles Ferguson is still recuperating. Keep them in the prayers and do not forget the brave military.

The members were delighted that three wonderful performers from the Cumberland County Playhouse, namely music director Ron Murphy, Jason Ross and Michael Ruff, who are terrific actors. They gave previews from the wonderful plays coming up this year. They even sang some of the great songs from Grease, Gypsy, Dixie Swim Club and The Foreigner. The members thanked them for bringing attention to the wonderful Playhouse events.

After the dinner prayer, a delicious sweet and sour pork was prepared by Denise Acquista and her helpers, Marietta and Velma, plus many others with side dishes and desserts furnished by the members. 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.
