127 South Seniors set date for annual picnic

CROSSVILLE — On March 14, members of the 127 Senior Center had a grand time socializing with goodies and chit chat. The members played billiards, dominos (which is getting quite popular) and bingo, which was called by Helen Lord. The gifts were provided by Bob Folger of State Farm Insurance.

Fred Zoeller, president, opened the general meeting, with Bob Jones saying the opening prayer and Phyllis Jones leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Jan Neitzke, treasurer, gave her monthly treasurer’s report. She also reported on the trips.

The monies for the May 7 trip to the Lumberjack Feud in Pigeon Forge are due now. Also, money is due April 1 for the Chattanooga to Chickamauga, GA train ride on Aug. 16 because this trip requires a deposit at least three months before the trip. Do not forget the Corvette trip will be March 26, with the bus leaving at 8 a.m.

Nancy Fincher, sunshine lady, gave her report on all the sick members and the ones recovering from surgeries and or joint replacements. She requested that the members keep them in their prayers and never forget the brave military who keep this country free.

Fred thanked Jan for doing all the decorations around the center and to Gary Schellinger for installing the filter in the ice machine. Fred also announced this week’s kitchen workers and passed the board to sign up for kitchen help in April.

March 18 was Game Day. The lunch was pizza.

Do not forget the bluegrass music every Thursday starting at 6 p.m. The public is welcome.

Fred announced a couple of things happening in the community as follows: On March 21, Jay Fox will be performing at the First Christian Church from 2 to 4 p.m. Also, the Curtain Call Dinner Theater at the Crossville Outlet Center has performances this month consisting of great local talent with the theme on country music. Some members who have went there  said they had a great time.

Bob Jones, chairman of the annual picnic, which is going to be July 18, stated he will have a sign-up sheet next week. When members sign up, they are also required to pay $5. The deadline is June 27.

Tom Fincher, entertainment chairman, introduced the group named Richard Reek and Kids, who played country and rock and roll. They got together just two days before performing and gave the members a great show.

Fred led the dinner prayer before Anna Cox served a favorite dish of “chicken n’ dumplins” with her helpers, Sandy, Gladys and Shirley, 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.
