Another fun day at 127 Senior Center

CROSSVILLE — Another fun day at the 127 Senior Center was held Friday, March 7, to socialize with goodies and chit chat. The members played billiards, dominos and bingo, which was called by Arlene Simmons (with her adorable “bingo” sweatshirt), and the gifts were provided by Quality Health Care.

Fred Zoeller, president, opened the general meeting, with Mildred Mims saying the opening prayer and Gerry Mims leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Jan Neitzke gave her report on the following trips — the trip to the Corvette Museum has been changed again from March 19 to March 26. The bus will leave at 8 a.m.

On May 7 the trip will be to the Lumberjack Feud in Pigeon Forge. Cost is $65, with dinner and will leave at noon. The full payment is due by March 14. The Wisconsin trip in June is cancelled. The July 9 trip on the Tennessee River Gorge Boat Ride is sold out. On Aug. 16, the train ride from Chattanooga to Chickamauga, GA, will leave at 6:30 a.m. and return at 8:30 p.m. The trip to Vermont, NH, and Maine on Sept. 20-28 is sold out.

On Oct. 8 the tour of Bush’s Bean Museum and Visitor Center has openings. The trip on Nov. 5 is the trip to see the Country Tonight Theater Show with dinner. The last trip of the year will be Dec. 13, going to see the Christmas in the Valley at Renfro Valley, KY. There are a couple of seats available. For further trip information, contact Jan at 788-3667.

All the members gave Nancy Fincher, the sunshine lady, a “great big welcome back.” She gave her report of all the sick and/or recuperating members and asked to keep them in your prayers and please do not forget the brave and wonderful military in your prayers as well.

Mary Brown, the birthday lady, announced all the March birthdays. There was one special birthday, which was Estella Morris, who is celebrating her 90th birthday. Members sang "Happy, Happy," with Gwen Flynn on the piano. Estella, we hope you have many more.

Fred reminded everyone about the corridor sale items and also the bluegrass music every Thursday evening, which is open to the public.

The entertainment was provided by Cowboy Bob Johnson with Tom Fincher. The members always enjoy their music and the jokes. Great job men.

Fred led the dinner prayer before a delicious meal was prepared by Anna Cox with her helpers, Shirley, Ginny and Elaine, with side dishes and desserts furnished by the members. Have a wonderful and blessed week.

  • 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.
