Hebbertsburg dance to feature City Lites May 4

CROSSVILLE — On Saturday, May 4, the Hebbertsburg Community Center will feature the City Lites band. Does the name City Lites sound familiar? It should, because the group has been making music in this area for more than 25 years. Although they are mostly known for their Big Band/ballroom dancing style of music, these guys are versatile, and, they will show off that versatility on May 4 when they perform '50s and '60s lite rock as well as blues and country (and probably some ballroom dance music, too, if asked). 

Do you like guitar? That's Marty Gibson's part. How about more guitar? Add Flavie Miller. Maybe drums are your favorite? Wade England will amaze you. Have a weakness for the saxophone? Glen Holverson will wow you, and when you add them together, you are in for a special treat. 

Mark Saturday, May 4 on your calendar now, invite some friends and claim a table. Plan to arrive early because they are expecting a standing-room only crowd.

Whether you like to dance or just appreciate listening to good music that brings back memories or maybe enjoy people watching, this is clean family entertainment and you will have a great time. 

The dance will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Hebbertsburg Community Center. There is a $3 donation at the door for folks over 16 years old, while children get in free. They will be serving a homemade spaghetti dinner, including bread and beverage for $6, with desserts and additional beverages $1 each. Plan to join the Fun and Famous Cakewalk for $1 a chance, with the cakes provided by talented Hebbertsburg ladies.

From the four-way stop in Fairfield Glade, head North on Peavine Rd. 5.3 miles to the Y in the road, take the left fork and go about 0.1 mile to the blue community center on the left. Any questions? Call Carolyn at 707-7837.

  • 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.
