127 Seniors prepares for trip to the Big Easy in April

CROSSVILLE — On Friday, Oct. 4, members gathered together at the 127 Senior Center to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They played billiards, dominos and bingo, with Bob Jones calling the numbers, and the prizes were provided by the Quality Health Care. The members appreciated the prizes and say thank you.

Due to a computer malfunction on Sept. 20, a few items were omitted as follows: Annie Lewis sent a letter of thanks to all the members who helped in the kitchen during the 127 Corridor Sale. In the Sept 13 article, it was noted that the Bullards travelled with Amtrak to 27 states, but it should have read 47 states (sorry, Bill and Lu). Also, the members want to give a big thank you to Life Care Center for furnishing their lunch Sept. 20, which included barbecue pork and chicken fingers. Everyone enjoyed the generous donation.

This week Emil Neitzke opened the meeting at 10:30 a.m., with Margaret Boatwright giving the opening prayer and Bob Jones leading the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Jan Neitzke gave a report on the following trips: The New Orleans trip in April 2014 —$75 deposit is due by Nov. 22, and the cost of the insurance is $45; Rockettes performance in Nashville on Dec. 4 — $95 per person is due by Oct. 11 (all tickets have been purchased so there cannot be any cancellations); New Hampshire and Maine trip in September 2014 — the deposit of $100 is due Jan. 3, 2014, and the insurance is $119. Starting with this trip, the individual will be responsible for paying his or her insurance directly to the company. Jan will have the forms.

Sandy Devine announced all the October birthdays and anniversaries and everyone sang "Happy, Happy" and "God Bless You" with Gwen Flynn on the piano.

The members are looking for a new caterer to do their seasonal dinners throughout the year. If anyone is interested, contact Emil Neitzke.

Nancy Fincher, the Sunshine Lady gave her report on all the sick members and asked the members to keep them in their prayers and to not forget prayers for the many military men and women.

The entertainment was provided by Wetwood Dalton, who was terrific with all his great stories, funny jokes and his wonderful songs. Members gave him a standing ovation, and everyone is looking forward to his next visit. Thank you, Wetwood.

After the table blessing, Sharon Hilton and helpers served a delicious meal with the members bringing in side dishes and desserts. Until the next gathering, have a blessed week.

  • 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.
