127 Seniors to see Helen in July

CROSSVILLE — The Seniors of 127 South met June 22 for their regular morning of bingo and fun. The bingo prizes were furnished by Dr. Galloway, and Bob and Carol Kirkland. Arlene Simmons called the numbers and everyone had a great time.

President Fred Zoeller called the business meeting to order, and Elaine Mumme gave the morning prayer. Ted Mumme led everyone in the pledge to flag. The guest for the day was Joyce Van Nocker, and she was introduced to the crowd. They added three new members to their roster this morning: Karen Boyd, Helga Groepler and Tracy Ruckersfeldt.

Jan gave her trip report for the year and reminded everyone that the next trip will be to Helen, GA, for three days and will be leaving the center at 6:30 a.m. The Aug. 16 trip will be to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the RCA Studio B. The cost is $50, and there are a few seats still available. Give Jan a call.

The Sept. 12 trip will be to the Falcon Rest Dinner Theater to see the Honeymoon Ball of General John Hunt Morgan, and there are still seats available. In October, the trip will be to the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam (this trip is sold out). The trip for November will be to the historic Ryman Auditorium to see the Grand Ole Opry (this show is sold out). There are still a few seats available for the trip in December to Pigeon Forge to see the Smoky Mountain Opry Christmas Show and the Winterfest Christmas Lights. Call and make your reservation. Jan has information for the England, Ireland, Scotland and Whales trip for 2013. Call the center if you are interested.

Jan gave the sunshine report and asked everyone to keep Margaret Boatright, Kathleen Zuk, Harold and Joy Moyer and Dot Conklin in their thoughts and prayers. It was great to see Pat Ferguson and other members back at the center.

Remember to keep buying Kroger coupons as this is one of the moneymakers for the center. Also, they are looking for great items for the 127 yard sale that is in August, and you may drop the items off at the center or the guys will come and pick up the items if you have no way to get them there. The Thursday night Bluegrass Pick-N-Jam is still going strong. So come by and enjoy the music.

Rose Garchow has tickets for the Music of the Cumberland show. The first show will be July 17. The tickets are $10, and this is a money-raising project for the center. Their annual picnic will be July 20 at Obed River Park. Be sure to call or come by the center to make your reservation. The next game day was June 26 at noon.

The program for the day was Classy Country Strings and, as always, they did a great job. After the table blessing was led by Rose, Anna Cox and all her helpers served a great lunch of chicken and dumplings with vegetables, salad and desserts. Everyone had a great morning, and they look forward to seeing everyone Friday. This is the fifth Friday of the month so remember to bring sandwiches, salads and desserts. Soup will be provided.

  • 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.
