AROUND THE TOWN: Fashion, talent shows just around the corner

Spring is literally just around the corner, and this always means a host of activities are scheduled over at the TAD Center. First of all, to celebrate its arrival, Gigi’s and the Screen Door will once again present its spring fashions during a fashion show and luncheon to benefit the TAD Center. The second annual event is slated for Monday, March 19 at Fortes Restaurant on the Square.

The fashion show and luncheon will feature all of the latest fashions from Gigi’s Boutique and the Screen Door as well as a silent auction and door prizes. A lunch with choice of chicken or fish, two sides, dessert and a beverage will be included in the $20 ticket price.

This will be a continuous fashion show, or in other words, the fashions will be shown from table to table throughout the show’s time (11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.) so that each outfit may be seen regardless of a person’s lunch hour time.

All proceeds from the fashion show and silent auction will benefit the TAD Center and its programs. The TAD Center is a community education program with in-school, after-school and summer based programs for the youth of Cumberland County.

There are only 100 tickets available. They may be purchased at Gigi’s at 91 Hwy. 70 East, the Screen Door on Main St. or the TAD Center at 261 Yvonne Ave. during regular business hours. If you need additional information, contact the TAD Center at 456-2859.

Up next on the TAD Center’s agenda is the annual Youth Talent Show. This show is a sanctioned preliminary to the Knoxville A&I Fair’s Talent Show in September. The TAD Center’s contests are for 8-12 and 13-21 year olds. The winners of both contests will win a cash prize of $100. The winner of the 13-21 year-old division will advance to the A&I Fair’s talent show this fall.

There is no charge for students to enter the talent show. However, he or she must fill out a registration form by April 17. Forms may be filled out at the TAD Center. All types of talents are welcome, and students may also enter as a single contestant, duo or with a dance team or band.

The show will be held Tuesday, April 17 at the Palace Theatre on Main St. in Crossville. Show time is 6 p.m. Admission for the show is three canned goods per person.

Congratulations are in order for Cumberland County 2012 Sweetheart winners. Allysa Kerley was named as the 2012 Sweetheart, while Becca Patton was named as the Junior CCHS winner.

The Visually Impaired Support Group will feature a special concert this weekend at the Palace Theatre. Southern Rascals, with Henry Hunnicutt as master of ceremonies, will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Friday night. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.

  • plateau gardening-hydrangeas5117.jpg Prune flowering shrubs: now or wait until February?

    Experts say, “Don’t prune woody-stemmed plants (shrubs, trees and some types of vines) after mid-August.” Do pay close attention to that advice. The purpose of this late-season pruning prohibition is to keep plants healthy.

    At Burgess Falls, you can be out of your car and taking in the breathtaking view of the Falling Water River as it falls 136 feet in the third and final drop of the river with just a short walk through the woods.
    But even though the state park is close to civilization, this natural wonder retains its wild and scenic reputation.
