Fair Park Senior Center offers Community Health Fair Thursday

CROSSVILLE — Fair Park Senior Center is partnering with one of its corporate sponsors, Cumberland Medical Center, to reach out for a healthier Cumberland County. The upcoming Community Health Fair will have lots of booths with free information, interesting demonstrations of all kinds and door prizes.

Special guests will be Chef Walters Lambert from WVLT-TV 10 in Knoxville, who will give a demonstration on easy, great tasting healthy meals; Rabin A Hijazi, M.D.; and Vincent Longobardo, DPM, will be discussing diabetes.   

CMC will be providing a nice bag lunch. Some of the Fair Park seniors will be demonstrating line dancing and Tai Chi.

If you would like to have your health checked, there will be more than 15 health screenings available for you at a low cost. Cash or credit card will be due at that time. Fasting is required for some tests so plan to get there early and hungry.

The health fair is Thursday, April 11, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cumberland County Community Complex and Fairgrounds. Everyone is invited to come.

There will be some good classes starting this week at the center. The Chess Club with George will be starting up again this Thursday at 1:30 p.m. A self-defense class with instructor Larry Potter will be this Friday at 12:15 p.m. A Parkinson's class with David Manestar will begin Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. Take a trip with Tommy Cole to the Smoky Mountains and Cade's Cove Tuesday, April 16. Please sign up for these and other classes as well as future van trips at the front desk at the senior center.

Line dancers of all ages in the county are invited to the dance this Saturday night at the center for a fun night of kicking up those heels and boot scooting. Doors will be open from 7 to 10 p.m. The cost is $5 at the door. Bring your snacks.

Plan to come to the health fair and then visit Fair Park Senior Center, which is just across the street from the fairgrounds at 1433 Livingston Rd. in Crossville. It is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

You can also visit the center’s website at to keep up-to-date on the latest programs and activities that are being offered, as well as online versions of the center’s monthly newsletter, “Newsline.”

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • 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.
