Fair Park Jammers playing Friday

CROSSVILLE — Most musicians find they can made beautiful music better by being in a group. The Fair Park Jammers have enjoyed coming together for years to play what most call “mountain music.” At times, there could be 10 seniors who may show up, lugging in their many music cases filled with all kinds of acoustic instruments. There are always guitars, along with mandolins, fiddles, banjos and at times a harmonica.

They enjoy picking out those old tunes they all know so well. It is always peaceful and relaxing on those afternoons, as they leave the door to that room open so the sweet musical melodies fill the air throughout the senior center building. The songs of a simpler life gone by. Any senior can come and join in, as a new face and voice is always welcomed in this group. They would love to have you.

The Fair Park Jammers will be serenading all the seniors this coming Friday morning starting about 9:30. You’re welcome to come and enjoy the music and fellowship over a cup of coffee. Play a few games of bingo sponsored by Price Less IGA, and do plan to stay for lunch.   

Also this Friday, the next senior self-defense class will be starting with instructor Larry Potter. The class is for 10 weeks and is held in the afternoons at 1. Everyone needs to know how to defend themselves.

Ben Kilgrow, Title lll attorney for the Aging Services for the Upper Cumberlands, will be at the senior center Tuesday morning, March 25. He will gladly met with any senior 60-plus to assist in counseling with them in matters concerning seniors. He is available by appointment.

The senior center is currently signing up all kinds of talent for its next fund raiser, Crossville’s Got Talent. Someone will win $300. To sign up, please call Tina at 484-7416.

Pioneer Day will be Saturday, Sept. 13, and they are currently taking applications for all kinds of venders for this event (contact Carolyn). This year there will also be an indoor building for antiques dealers to set up. Please contact Debbie at 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.
