Seniors enjoy oldies from Days Gone By

CROSSVILLE — The 127 Senior Center gathered together Friday, Feb. 28, to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They played billiards, dominos and bingo, which was called by Arlene Simmons and Helen Lord, and the gifts were provided by Dr. M. Stewart Galloway, ophthalmologist.

President Fred Zoeller opened the general meeting with Brenda Williams saying the opening prayer and Bob Jones leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Jan Neitzke gave her reports on the following trips: There is a change regarding the Corvette trip on March 19. The bus will leave at 8 a.m., not 8:30 a.m. Please change this on your calendar.

Jan has the itinerary for the trip to New Orleans (April 6-12). Everyone who is going on this trip needs to contact Jan. The Nov. 5 trip to Country Tonight Theater Show in Pigeon Forge will be $65 (includes dinner). The bus will leave at 10:30 a.m. and return at 8 p.m. Also, the trip on Dec. 13 to the Christmas in the Valley Show in Renfro Valley, KY, will be $70 (includes dinner). The bus will leave at 8 a.m. Take note: the seats are center stage. Contact Jan for more information at 788-3667.

Fred Zoeller informed the members about the Yellow Dot Program. This is very important in case of any medical emergency while driving your vehicle anywhere. This will provide the first responders with the information they need to assist you when needed. The Tennessee Department of Transportation sponsors this program. For further information, contact Fred.

Fred also thanked Ted Mumme for installing the mailbox, which was knocked down, and for helping him with gathering and taking the aluminum cans, brass, etc. to the recycling center to sell. Also thanks to Bill Bullard for donating the tracks that contained the brass. Fred also welcomed a new member, James Vegan.

The center purchased a new water cooler and had it installed. It looks terrific. Also, the monthly calendar, which Alice Kay works up, is ready for review. Everyone welcomed a few of the members that were on the sick list, Betty LeDuc, Bob and Phyllis Jones.

Leonard Hollender had another “surprise” for the members. He brought a wonderful and plentiful box of goodies for a door prize from BoJangle's restaurant. Thanks goes to Leonard and BoJangle's. They wonder what he will do next?

Congratulations goes to Tom and Nancy Fincher on their 50th wedding anniversary, and the members are praying Nancy will be back soon.

The entertainment was provided by Days Gone By, which consists of Patrick Studer and Pam Hammond. The members enjoyed their oldies with wonderful guitars in the background.

After the dinner prayer, a delicious spaghetti and meatball dinner was prepared by Mary McClure and her helpers Shirley, Anna and Elaine, with side dishes furnished by the members. A wonderful strawberry shortcake prepared by Anna Cox was the dessert. Have a wonderful and 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.
