FAIR PARK: Lucas Christmas Show is a sold-out success

CROSSVILLE — Wayne, Ruth and their talented friends did a great Christmas performance to a packed house. Everyone left with smiles on their faces! Fair Park Senior Center would like to thank them and everyone who, together, helped to make it such a success.

Special thanks goes out to our wonderful host for the evening, Gordon Stack, who did an outstanding job, with thanks to Ronnie Chase and the whole Moo Crew staff for their great promotion for the center.

Also thanks to the Crossville Chronicle, who has always been so good to the senior center. Thanks to Terry Ashburn and the whole Palace staff, who are so professional in handling the sound and the crowds at the theater.

The next fund raiser event for the center will be Friday, Feb. 22, with “The Third Annual Gong Show,” with host Henry Hunnicutt! So it is time for all the fun crazy acts to get drummed up! So we all have that to look forward to! Call Tina to get in the show, at 484-7416.  

It is because of people like these who care, that helps Fair Park to continue to be able to provide wonderful classes for seniors, like the following, which are coming up soon in 2013.

Reader’s Theater with Terry Burgess. A popular way to have fun, acting out comedy dramas, without having to memorize your lines. Sounds like a lot of laughter and fun! Anyone can do it! Sign up, cause classes start Wednesday, Jan. 9, from 2-4 p.m.

The 4th Police Academy will be held, this time in Tansi for the residents of that community. The eight-week class will be lead by the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department. Seniors will learn everything about all areas of our local law enforcement. How the whole system works from traffic stops to murder scene investigations and the courts system. This class will be starting in February.

There will be two free educational health classes starting after the first of the year with the UT Extension for Cumberland County; instructor will be Kelli Bottoms. “Take Charge of Your Diabetes” will teach you the most recent information and tips, to learn better ways to take day-to-day responsibility and control of your diabetes. The six-week program will start Tuesday, Jan. 8, from 9-11 a.m.

If you are tired of just sitting and hurting with your arthritis, you can get up and do more about it than just taking a pain pill. Learn exercises from the Arthritis Foundation, that will show you how you can take control of your pain. This class will be starting Wednesday, Jan. 9, 9:30-10:30 a.m. Please sign up now for both of these classes.

The Senior Center offers so much for today’s seniors. So plan to start your New Year out, with Fair Park. The center is at 1433 Livingston Rd., and is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call 484-7416, or check out our web site at www.fairparkseniorcenter.org .

  • 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.
