127 Seniors celebrate Christmas Friday

CROSSVILLE — The Seniors of 127 South met Dec. 7 for their usual games, sweets, coffee and conversation. Arlene Simmons called the bingo numbers, and Quality Health Care furnished the prizes.

Fred Zoeller, president, called the regular meeting to order, with Bob Jones giving the prayer and Phyllis Jones leading the pledge to the flag.

The members elected the following as officers for 2013: Emil Neitzke president; Mary Bohrman, vice president; Jan Neitzke, treasurer; Elaine Mumme, secretary; and Lucy Elmore, assistant secretary. Two new board members are Sallye Sykes and Ted Mumme.

Jan Neitzke mentioned a few trips for 2013 and she is working on a trip March 9 to a variety show at Renfro Valley, KY. There will be more details later. April 15-19 will be the trip to Memphis/Tunica, with three seats available. Final payment for that trip will be Jan. 15. The trips to Mackinac Island have a few seats available: two seats for the Sept. 8-14 trip and three seats for the Sept. 22-28 trip. The trip to England, lreland, Scotland and Wales will be in June.

Nancy Fincher asked everyone to keep the following in their prayers: Jim Brennan, Kathleen Zuk, Bill Bullard, Helen Schilling, Jim Evans, Mary Hirsch, Dot Conklin, Pat Mount, Evelyn Dye and T.C. Lewis.

Sandy Devine announced the birthdays for December, and Gwen Flynn played the piano for the birthday song. Two new members were welcomed: Avonelle McCormack and Jean Wettlaufer. Members recognized their own Leonard Hollender as Cumberland County Senior of the Year.

Fred reminded everyone that the senior center will be closed Dec. 28, and Dec. 14 will be the center's Christmas program and dinner. There will be extra nice bingo gifts that day. Bingo will start at 9 a.m., and the board members are to meet at 8 a.m. that morning. Keep bringing in items for the 127 yard sale and keep buying Kroger coupons, which help the senior center.

Southern Pride provided the music at the last meeting and they are just great entertainers. After the table blessing, the kitchen crew served baked chili and cornbread, and the sides were brought in by members.

    Every Wednesday after 1 p.m. from May through October, there is a steady stream of people converging on the kitchen of Heritage Hall on Church St. in Pleasant Hill with baskets and bags. Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

    Garry, a new resident in Crossville, emailed to ask how to gather a soil sample and where to take it to have testing done. Your local University of Tennessee Extension office is the place to go. Those in the Crossville area should call UT Extension Cumberland County at 484-6743. A staff person at the office can explain how to collect soil samples.

  • 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.
