Garrisons return to 127 Senior Center

CROSSVILLE — On April 12, the members of the 127 South Senior Center had another good time playing bingo and dominos. Numbers were called by Arlene Simmons, and the gifts were provided by Bob Folger of State Farm Insurance.

Emil Neitzke opened the meeting at 10:40 a.m., with Bob Jones giving the opening prayer, followed by Fred Whittaker with the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jan Neitzke gave the treasurer's report and the status of the trips. May 18 will be the trip to Sutton General Store, which is near Granville, TN, and it is sold out. The June trip to England, etc. is also sold out. The July 9 day trip to the Day Lily Farm near Athens, TN, is $50. The August trip to the Jack Daniel Distillery is sold out.

There are three openings for the Mackinac Island trip set for Sept. 22-28. The October trip to Dollywood is also sold out. In November, they will have another day trip to the Cumberland County Playhouse, which will cost $38. The December trip to see the Rockettes is sold out. If interested in any of these trip, even if it is sold out, you can put your name on the waiting list. Call Jan at 788-3667.

Sharon Hilton gave reports to the members on different events happening in the community.

Emil gave a report on all the sick members and requested prayers for all of them. They were happy to see Bob Brown back from his illness.

Emil recognized Carol Kirkland for doing a superb job of always having wonderful entertainment. Being it was Carol's birthday, everyone sang "Happy Birthday."

Entertainment was provided by Donna and D.J. Garrison, who also wrote a song in honor of Carol's birthday. The Garrisons were so enjoyable as usual, but this time they had guitar music instead of a keyboard — such wonderful music!

After the dinner prayer, everyone enjoyed a delicious pasta dish, prepared by Denise Acquista and her kitchen helpers, with side dishes and desserts brought in by members.

  • 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.
