127 Seniors getting ready for 2013

CROSSVILLE — The seniors of 127 South met Nov. 2 for their usual games, coffee, sweets and conversation. Arlene Simmons called the bingo numbers and Quality Home Health furnished the prizes. Blood pressures were read by Quality Home Health. Last week’s gifts were provided by Dr. Galloway.

Fred Zoeller, president, opened the regular meeting with Larry Oslund giving the prayer and Fay Oslund leading the pledge to the flag.

Jan Neitzke gave her trips report and the last trip for the year will be to Pigeon Forge to see the Smoky Mountain Opry Christmas Show, the Winterfest Lights and Tony Romas for dinner. The bus will leave the center at 9 a.m. There will be two trips to Mackinac Island with one trip scheduled for Sept. 8-15 and the other bus scheduled for Sept. 22-29. April 15-19 will be the trip to Tunica and Memphis and the cost is $375. A deposit of $75 is due Nov. 15. Jan is preparing the Thanksgiving meal for Nov. 16 and the cost is $7. The Christmas dinner, which is catered, will be Dec. 14.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report. Please keep the following in your prayers: T.C. Lewis, Kathleen Zuk, Jim Brennan, Lucy Parrott, Dot Conklin, Pat Mount, Sheila Borchers, Louise Visage, our military and the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Sandy Devine read the birthdays for November and Gwen Flynn played the piano for the “Happy Birthday” song.

Dues for next year can be paid now so your name will be in the new 2013 membership book. Keep buying Kroger coupons, bring in items for the 127 yard sale next year and remember bluegrass music every Thursday night. The Senior Center will be closed Nov. 23 and Dec. 28 for the holidays.

Don’t forget the next game day will be Nov. 27. Dec. 7 will be the election of new officers for 2013.

  • 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.
