Several trips offered with 127 Seniors

CROSSVILLE — On May 3, the members of the 127 South Senior Center had a good time playing bingo, socializing and playing dominos. Numbers were called by Bill Bullard, and the prizes were furnished by Quality Health Care, who checked the members' blood pressures.

Emil Neitzke, president, opened the meeting at 10:35 a.m. with Larry Oslund giving the opening prayer and Fay Oslund  leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jan Neitzke gave her report on the following trips for this year. The May trip and the June trip to the UK are sold out. The July 9 day trip to Day Lily Farm near Athens has a few seats available. The Aug. 13 day trip to Jack Daniels Distillery has four seats open.

Also, the second trip to Mackinac Island Sept. 22-28 has six seats available. The October day trip to Dollywood is sold out. The day trip on Nov. 26 to the Cumberland County Playhouse, followed by dinner at Gondola restaurant, has a few openings. The Dec. 11 trip to see the Rockettes is also sold out. If interested in any of the above trips, contact Jan at 788-3667.

Nancy Fincher, the sunshine lady, reported all the members who are sick and asked for prayers for them.

All of the members who have a birthday in May were acknowledged, and Gwen Flynn played the piano while the members sang "Happy Birthday."

Emil announced that the bluegrass band will not play Thursday evening, May 16. He also stated that the center needs more items for the corridor sale and to keep buying coupons at Kroger. Do not forget the fundraiser June 9 at the Palace Theatre.

The terrific entertainment was provided by Johnny Moore, accompanied by Dan Fisk and his spoons. Johnny brought his lovely wife, Susie, and some of his relatives. Everyone enjoyed their music and Johnny's stories.

After the dinner prayer, they enjoyed stuffed pork roast prepared by a wonderful lady and her kitchen help, with side dishes and desserts provided by members.

  • 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.
