127 Seniors prepare for October book sale

CROSSVILLE — On Aug. 9 members gathered together at the 127 Senior Center to socialize with coffee, goodies and conversation. They then played billiards, dominos and bingo, which was sponsored by Joan Schabert, B.S., with Tennessee Spine, Joint and Pain Management and Cookeville Neuropathy Center in Cookeville. The members sure enjoyed their entertainment and prizes. Thank you again from all the members.

The general meeting was opened by President Emil Neitzke at 10:30 a.m., with Brenda Williams giving the opening prayer and Bob Jones leading with the Pledge of Allegiance. Lucy Elmore thanked everybody who helped to make the corridor sale a success. Annie Cox also thanked everybody who helped in the kitchen for the sale. She said she will do it again next year. Sandy Devine passed around the sign-up sheet for people who wanted to work at the county fair this year. 

Ginny Herbert announced to everyone that she will be resigning from the kitchen staff at the end of August. Ginny thanked everybody who assisted her in the kitchen. The kitchen help will miss her wonderful work in how she maintained all ends of the cooking duties. Her jovial disposition will be truly missed. Thanks to Ginny from all the members. 

Jan Neitzke gave her monthly treasurer's report, as well as an update on the Dec. 4 trip to see the Rockettes. The trip will be $95 a piece, and the group will be in Section 20 in the center in the Mezzamine. The Maine trip set for September 2014 is sold out. The New Orleans trip in April 2014 has six seats available. The money is due Sept. 13 for the sold-out Dollywood trip, which will be Oct. 8.

Mary Brown, the birthday lady, announced all the birthdays and anniversaries in August, and everyone sang "Happy, Happy" and God bless to them. Nancy Fincher, the sunshine lady, gave her report on all the sick members, requesting that everyone keep them in their prayers as well as all the military personnel.

Visitors were Rachel’s daughter, Patty, and her grandson, Miller, from New York. The kitchen announced that they have plenty desserts for next week. So do not bring any; just bring side dishes.

On Friday and Saturday, Oct. 4 and 5, the center will be having a book sale, with Sally Sykes as chairman. 

The entertainment was provided by talented and well-known Crossville musician Tom Fincher, who brought along his guitar. Members enjoyed his creative songs. After the table blessing, a delicious meal was prepared by Denise Acquista and her kitchen help with salads and desserts furnished by the members.

  • 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.
