CROSSVILLE — On Friday, April 11, the members of the 127 Senior Center had another good time playing bingo and dominos. Bingo was called by Arlene Simmons and Helen Lord, and the bingo gifts were provided by Bob Folger of State Farm Insurance.

Fred Zoeller opened the meeting, with Bob Jones giving the opening prayer and Phyllis Jones leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Fred reminded everyone that the senior center will be closed Friday, April 18, to observe Good Friday. Also, the kitchen help board was passed for members to sign up for May. Fred will be out starting April 25, so Vice President Lucy Elmore will be presiding for the meetings until he returns.

Do not forget to bring in items for the corridor sale and aluminum cans, which helps to raise money for the center. Bluegrass is always on Thursdays starting at 6 p.m., and is free to the public.

No reports from Jan Neitzke and Nancy Fincher were given as they were on a trip to New Orleans, LA. The members hope that Brenda Williams and Larry and Fay Oslund are recovering well. The members are keeping them in their prayers. Also, never forget to keep the brave military, who are keeping Americans safe and free, in prayers.

Members were delighted to be entertained by Jay Fox, who sang some beautiful gospel songs with his smooth and majestic voice. He is welcomed back anytime.

After the dinner prayer, a delicious dinner was prepared by Ginny Herbert with her helper Johanna Nagel, with side dishes and desserts furnished by the members.

Have blessed and happy Easter.
