CROSSVILLE — On Friday, April 25, the 127 Senior Center gathered together for their weekly fun with bingo and dominos. Bingo was called by Helen Lord, and the gifts were provided by Dr. M. Stewart Galloway, ophthalmologist.

Nancy Fincher, the sunshine lady, gave her report on all the members who are recovering from surgery and/or illness as follows: Fred Zoeller, Jan Neitzke, Brenda Williams, Barbara Neely, Lucy Bryan, Margaret Boatwright, Carl Brooks and many more. Keep them all in your prayers as well as the brave military personnel.

Lucy welcomed guests Bill and Jenny Taylor from Wisconsin.

The center's book sale will be Saturday, May 24. Bring in books by May 17. Setup will be May 22. They are looking for more volunteers to help. So, please sign up.

After the meeting, Tom Fincher introduced the entertainment — the wonderful, smooth, mellow singer, joke teller and actor Wetwood Dalton. He also brought part of the cast from the Curtain Call Theater, Dennis Donald and Viviana Pabi. What a terrific show! Thanks to all three of you.

After the dinner prayer, which was sung by Bob Jones, a delicious hobo stew was prepared by Jean Wettlaufer and her helpers, with side dishes and desserts furnished by the members.

They wish everyone a safe 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.
