Gaston family visits 127 South Senior Center

CROSSVILLE — The Seniors of 127 South met July 7 for their regular game of bingo and fun. The bingo prizes were furnished by Quality Health Care, and Tammy joined them to take blood pressure readings for anyone interested. They have added dominos for those not interested in bingo.

President Fred Zoeller called the business meeting to order and Bob Jones gave the morning prayer. Phyllis Jones led everyone in the pledge to the flag. They added two new members, Alexandra Buchanan and Dennis Sholpe, to their roster.

Jan gave her trip report and reminded everyone that the next trip will be to Helen, GA, for three days. They be leaving the center at 6:30 a.m. The Aug. 16 trip will be to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the RCA Studio B. The cost is $50. Sept. 12 will be the trip to the Falcon Rest Dinner Theater to see the "Honeymoon Ball of General John Hunt Morgan." In October, the trip will be to the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam (this trip is sold out). The trip for November will be to the historic Ryman Auditorium to see the Grand Ole Opry (this is sold out). In December, they will be going to Pigeon Forge to see the Smokey Mountain Opry Christmas Show and the winterfest Christmas Lights. Jan also has information for the England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales trip for 2013. Call the center if you are interested.

Nancy Fincher gave the sunshine report and asked everyone to keep Margaret Boatright, Kathleen Zuk, Dot Conklin, Bob Kirkland, Pat Mount, Rose Garchow, Dotti Bickell and Sandy Devine in their thoughts and prayers.

Remember to keep buying Kroger coupons as it is one of the moneymakers for the center. They are also looking for items for the 127 Yard Sale that is in August. You may drop the items off at the center or the guys will come and pick up the items if you have no way to get them to the center.

Their Thursday night Bluegrass Pick-N-Jam is still going strong. So come by and enjoy the music.

Fred announced the July birthdays, and with Gwen Flynn playing the piano, they sang "Happy Birthday" to everyone who had birthdays in the month of July. Rose Garchow has tickets for the Music of the Cumberlands. The first show will be July 17. The tickets are $10, and this is a money-raising project for the center. The annual picnic will be July 20 at Obed River Park. Their next game day will be July 24 at noon.

The program for the day was Billy Gaston and Family and they did a great job. After the table blessing was led by Fred, Sharon Hilton and all her helpers served a great lunch of ham, meatloaf and barbecue, with vegetables, salad and desserts. Everyone had a great morning, and they looking forward to seeing everyone next Friday.

  • 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.
