Listen to "A Child's Christmas in Wales"

CROSSVILLE — Terry Burgess seems to be a man of many talents. He donates his time at the senior center and is currently leading the reader’s theater group. He is retired and spends a lot of time on the greens at Fairfield Glade. Besides his career in the service in many countries and years as a police chief in Maine, he has always enjoyed acting. He has worked in TV, many stage plays and even a movie with Sissy Spacek, but his favorite is always comedy.

Burgess, along with Carol Skiles, will be entertaining the seniors with their version of “A Child's Christmas in Wales,” this Friday morning at 9:45 a.m. So come early to get a good seat, a cup of hot coffee and get settled in for a good story. Ellen Metcalf from the Life Care Center of Tennessee will sponsor bingo afterwards.

Burgess is just one of the many wonderful volunteers at the center. If you have a special skill or talent you would like to share with seniors, they would love to have you. Also they always need volunteers at the front desk and other tasks.

The Fair Park Senior Center is a very special place with all kinds of activities for all the seniors in Cumberland County who are 55-plus. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and always welcomes your money donations to provide programs for seniors. The center will be closed on Dec. 24, 25 and 26 for Christmas and Jan. 1.

The Fair Park Senior Center is at 1433 Livingston Rd., across from the fairgrounds. It is open to seniors Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with some evening classes. Check out the website to learn more at http://www.fairparkseniorcenter.org or call 484-7416.

  • 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.
