127 Seniors recognizes new chairmen for 2014

CROSSVILLE — The 127 South Cumberland Senior Center gathered Dec. 20 to play billiards, dominos and bingo. Arlene Simmons called the bingo numbers, and the prizes were furnished by Buckeye Home Health. The members want to thank all the organizations and individuals who furnished the bingo prizes throughout the year of 2013.

Emil Neitzke, president, opened the general meeting at 10:30 a.m., with Velma Pauley saying the opening prayer and Marietta Dion leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jan Neitzke gave her report on the following trips: the final payment is due Jan. 17 for the New Orleans trip in April. The payment of $42 for the Corvette plant tour is due Jan. 3. The deposit of $100 for the Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine trip is due Jan. 3.

Mario (Gabby) Gambaccini read a "The Night Before Christmas," which was not the traditional one, but one where Santa is overlooking a soldier who is defending the country. Made you feel heartwarming with a tear in your eye. Thank you, Gabby.

Nancy Fincher, sunshine lady, reported on all the sick members of the center. Keep all them in your hearts and prayers. Also, never forget all the men and women in the military in your prayers. She also gave a brief report on the upcoming Cumberland County Playhouse for 2014.

Carol Kirkland thanked everyone for their support through the many years that she was the entertainment chairman. Kirkland did a wonderful job and the members thanked her. Tom Fincher is the new entertainment chairman as of 2014. Emil announced that Anna Cox is the kitchen leader and Rachel Schellinger is the chairman for Game Day, which is held the third Tuesday of the month. All members are encouraged to partake in the next game day, which is Jan. 21.

The entertainment hour was quite informative with the mayor of Crossville, J.H. Graham III. The members had a number of questions and suggestions for Mayor Graham. Leonard Hollender pointed out to the mayor that his mother, Marcia Putman, donated a beautiful picture of two koala bears, which hangs in their meeting room. The picture was donated in honor of Leonard Hollender in 2012 for "Senior of the Year." Thank you, Mayor Graham, for spending some time with the members.

After the dinner prayer, the members had a delicious chicken and dumplings prepared by Anna Cox and her helpers, Marietta and Velma. As this year comes to an end, the members wish you and yours a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

  • 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.
