The members welcomed Charlie Ferguson back after a long illness. Fred announced the new members, Richard Gadwell and Doug Lock. Welcome aboard! Fred also reminded the members to bring in their items for the 127 Corridor Sale. Do not forget the great bluegrass music every Thursday evening at the center — it is open to the public and it is free.

The entertainment was provided by Chuck Tallent and Rob Baker. They played classic country music and share some humorous stories. Baker sang "Danny Boy,” which was terrific. The members thanked them and hope they return real soon.

After the dinner prayer, a delicious “Italian dish" was prepared by Brenda Williams and her helpers, Marietta, Velma and Anna. The members furnished the side dishes and the desserts. Next week, do not bring in desserts being there will be a special dessert furnished. Have a wonderful and blessed week.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
