Meet Marc Burnett at Fair Park

CROSSVILLE — Marc L.

Burnett is also currently pastor at Gainesboro First Baptist Church in Gainesboro. He has been married to wife Tamelyn for 28 years and has two grown children.

Burnett may be a busy man, but his favorite past time is painting and has had his work on display at many art shows. He recently was featured on Tennessee Crossroads. He is an avid racquetball player and a four-year letter winner in basketball at TTU and is a member of the Blount County TTU Sports Hall of Fame. He is also the director of the Tennessee American Legion Boys State Program.

Spanish classes will be starting Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 10:30 a.m. with Ramon Winemberg from Venezuela who enjoys teaching Spanish. Please sign up at the center.

Tickets are now on sale at the Fair Park Senior Center for the third annual Gong Show, which is being sponsored by their friends at Tri County Equipment Rental, John Deer and NAPA Auto Parts, located beside the post office. There will be lots of funny acts, and the acts that are not gonged could win some cash and passes to Dollywood and the Cumberland County Playhouse. Plan now to get a good laugh at the Gong Show. Tickets are currently on sale at Fair Park for $10.

  • 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.
