Seniors visit Corvette Museum

CROSSVILLE — The gathering of senior citizens of Cumberland County on March 21 began with bingo called by Arlene Simmons and prizes donated by Buckeye Home Health. Arlene also announced that next week, members are asked to bring $1 gag gifts in brown paper bags to celebrate April Fool’s Day. These will be aside from the regular prizes. Other members played dominos. 

The business meeting was opened by President Fred Zoeller at 10:34 a.m., with a prayer offered by Brenda Williams and the Pledge of Allegiance led by Janice Clingerman. Jan Neitzke gave the treasurer’s report and reminded members of the trip on Wednesday to the Corvette Plant and Museum in Bowling Green, KY. She reminded everyone that the $65 deposit for the August trip to Chickamauga from Chattanooga is due by April 18. 

Sunshine Lady Nancy Fincher announced a community band concert will be June 26 at 7 p.m. at Stone Memorial High School, and read the list of members who are out due to illness or surgeries. Everyone was asked to include them in their prayers. 

President Fred Zoeller reminded the membership that all trips are handled by Jan Neitzke and those funds are completely separate from the center, so any changes or refunds requested must be directed to Jan, not him. He reminded everyone of all the hard work that Jan does, acting as their treasurer as well as tour director.  

Next week’s kitchen workers were announced and, regarding all sign-ups, if you must change the date you signed up for, it is your job to please find a replacement for your position. 

President Fred reminded the members that the bluegrass jam session is every Thursday evening and the public is welcome to this free weekly event.  The corridor sale will be coming in August, and all members and the public are invited to donate saleable items to the center. Items can be brought in anytime now, and if items are too large for you to bring in, call the center on a Friday at 484-2547 to arrange for pick up.

Members are encouraged to bring in aluminum cans for recycling. They can be placed in the large trash can at the front entry vestibule, but please do not discard any trash in this can. Please rinse the cans before donating so they avoid any problems in their storage shed.

Bob Jones spoke about the senior center's summer picnic for members, to be held Friday, July 18. It will be catered by Big Boy's Barbecue and members must pay their $5 per person when you sign up with Bob.

Members were then entertained by the nimble-fingered pianist Carol Marr, accompanied by singers and guitarists Ray Bregan and Ed Cagle. They were joined by Bob Jones for a couple of numbers as well.

Following the entertainment, members enjoyed a fine lunch of ham prepared by Ginny Herbert and her helpers, Anna Cox and Gladys Butler, and side dishes brought in by members. Blessings to all until they meet again Friday.

  • 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.
