Seniors enjoy toe-tapping country songs

CROSSVILLE — On April 5, the members of the 127 Senior Center had another good time playing bingo and dominos. Bingo was called by Bill Bullard, and the bingo gifts were provided by Quality Health Care who also checked their BPs.

Emil Neitzke opened the meeting at 10:40 a.m., with Joy Moyer giving the prayer and Harold Moyer led the pledge of the flag. Emil passed the book so members could sign up to volunteer for kitchen help.

Emil also welcomed new members, Daniel and Frances Carter, to the center.

Jan Neitzke gave her report on the trips. The trip to Memphis/Tunica opn April 15-19 has five openings due to some unable to go at the last minute. Arrive at the senior center at 7:30 a.m. The bus will leave promptly at 8 a.m.

The May trip to the Sutton General Store is sold out. The June trip to England, Scotland, etc, is sold out. On July 9, they will have a day trip to Sunshine Hollow Day Lily Farm near Athens, TN. The cost is $50. The August trip to the Jack Daniel Distillery is sold out.

In September, there are four openings for the Mackinac Island Sept. 22-28. Another great day trip to Dollywood in October is sold out. On Nov. 26, there will be a day trip to the Cumberland County Playhouse for the 2:30 p.m. show. They will carpool from the senior center to the Playhouse. The cost is $38. They will have dinner after the show at Gondola. The December trip to see the Rockettes is also sold out.

Emil reminded everyone to bring in items for the 127 Corridor Sale and to keep buying Kroger coupons.

The sunshine lady, Nancy Fincher, mentioned all the sick members and requested prayers for a speedy recovery for all of them.

Remember on Saturday, April 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., there will be an AARP Safe Driving Course at the senior center. To attend you must pre-register by calling Leonard Stark at 456-1994.
