127 seniors plan trip to Renfro Valley March 23

CROSSVILLE — Bingo began at 9 a.m., called by Arlene Simpson. The prizes were donated by Buckeye. A good time was had by all attending. Dominoes were played in the main hall... no prizes, just lots of fun. Last week I failed to acknowledge that our bingo gifts were donated by Bob Folger of State Farm Insurance.

Following bingo, our meeting was called to order by President Emil Neitzke at 10 a.m. Opening prayer was led by Sharon Hilton and Gabby Gambaccini led our Pledge of Allegiance.

Several new members were introduced, Rama Smith, Frances Threet and Ken and Judy Messer.

Jan Neitzke reminded us of our next trip to Renfro Valley. This will be on March 9. This trip includes dinner and a bluegrass show. The bus will be leaving at 2:30 p.m., so get there early to sign in with Jan before boarding the bus. We will be returning around 9:30 p.m.

Sunshine lady Nancy Fincher read the list of members who are ill or recovering from surgeries. We ask that you keep them in your prayers. She also announced a benefit for the Obed Watershed on March 23 at 6 p.m., starring Sam Venable. Cost is $20 and you may call Stone Memorial for reservations.

Game day will be Tuesday, Jan. 22, from noon to 2 p.m. and we’ll be serving pizza. We will be playing games like cribbage, dominoes and pool. This is a side function for the seniors who sign up and contribute to the lunch with Rachel Schellinger.

Member Joy Moyer announced that former members Gina and Joe Broughton will be moving to Florida on Tuesday. They belonged to the Exchange Club at Tansi. Anyone knowing them might want to stop by and wish them well.

Following the meeting, our entertainment was by our member, Bob Jones. He sang some great ‘50s music for us and then some gospel music which is his forte. Miss “T” loaned him the music for the ‘50s music. Thanks, Miss “T.”

Emil Neitzke closed the meeting and then led our prayer song before adjourning for a great spaghetti lunch prepared by Ginny Herbert and her kitchen staff. Spaghetti was the main dish with lots of sides brought in by members. No one went home hungry.

We always need volunteers to be dish scrapers, coffee servers, dish wipers, so be sure to check the list and sign up if you are able. By sharing these jobs, we keep the lunches running smoothly.

  • 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.
