127 Seniors welcome city mayor to meeting

CROSSVILLE — On June 14, members gathered together at the 127 South Cumberland Senior Center to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They then played billiards, dominos and bingo, with Wendell Lester calling the numbers. The bingo prizes were furnished by Bob Folger, of State Farm Insurance.

The general meeting was opened by the president, Emil Neitzke, at 10:30 a.m., with Margaret Boatwright giving the opening prayer and Tom Fincher leading the Pledge of Allegiance. The members were advised to put aluminum foil over their hot side dishes (no glass covers or Saran wrap) before putting them in the warmer.

Jan Neitzke gave the treasurer's monthly report. She also advised the members that she is having a Caribbean cruise on the Princess Lines, leaving Feb. 22, 2014, to March 1, 2014, which will be another wonderful trip to put on your bucket list. More details will be coming later. The July 9 trip to Hollow Day Lily Farm is sold out.

Buy your coupons for Kroger from Jan. Remember this raises money for the center. Lucy Elmore has a sign-up sheet on the front table for volunteers to help at the corridor sale.

The annual picnic will be July 19 at Obed Park. The cost is $5. Please sign up with Marietta Dion or Sallye Sykes. They will have "special" bingo prizes to win.

A special thanks went to Tom Fincher for handling the fundraiser, which was a great success, at the Palace Theatre. They also welcomed new members Carol Skiles and Charlie Merrick.

The Sunshine Lady, Nancy Fincher, informed all of Frank Knapp's final journey to see the Lord. He will be greatly missed and his delicious Jell-O salads. Nancy gave her report on all the sick members, requesting that everyone keep them in their prayers as well as the military personnel.

Their guest speaker was J.H. Graham III, mayor of Crossville. lt was quite appropriate for his visit being it was Flag Day. Mayor Graham gave the members some history of Crossville, what is happening now and the future plans for the city. He answered many questions that the seniors asked. The seniors appreciated the time he spent with them.

After the dinner prayer, all enjoyed a delicious meatloaf prepared by Rita Marvin and her helpers in the kitchen, with salads and desserts furnished by the members.

  • 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.
