Daniels, Vest entertain 127 Seniors

CROSSVILLE — The 127 Senior Center members gathered together on Nov. 8 to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. Billiards, dominos and bingo were enjoyed by the members. Bingo was called by Bob Jones, and the gifts were provided by Bob Folger of State Farm Insurance.

Mary Bohrman, vice president, opened the general meeting at 10:40 a.m., with Sharon Hilton saying the opening prayer and Bob Jones leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Mary advised members to keep Jan Neitzke in their prayers. The sign-up sheets are on the front table for the ones who are interested in the 2014 trips. Mary welcomed the new members, Jan Grote and Mary Brewer. The members who are interested in running for any office position should see Sally Sykes to sign up.

Sunshine Lady Nancy Fincher gave a report on all the members who are sick and/or recuperating from different conditions or mishaps. Nancy reminded everyone to keep them in their prayers and to not forget the brave military men and women. Georgene Krogman read a poem with a powerful message called "It's a Soldier" in honor of Veterans Day.

The entertainment was provided by Lonnie Daniels on guitar and Wayne Vest on banjo. The members enjoyed the music and some good storytelling. Thank you gentleman for your talents.

After the dinner prayer, the members enjoyed a delicious pork tenderloin meal with side dishes and desserts provided by the members. God bless and have a wonderful week.

  • 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.
