127 Seniors welcome Fox to their stage

CROSSVILLE — The 127 Senior Center members gathered together Oct. 11 to socialize with coffee, goodies and chit chat. They played billiards, dominos and bingo, with Arlene Simmons calling the numbers and the prizes were furnished by Bob Folger, State Farm Insurance. Thank you for the prizes.

Emil Neitzke, president, called the meeting to order at 10:35 a.m., with Bob Jones leading the opening prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. The kitchen list for helpers was passed out for November, December and January. Everyone wants to say “thank you” to all who assist in the kitchen as helpers, dishwashers, wipers and the ones who take care of the coffee besides the cooks.

The Harvest Dinner will be Oct. 18, which will be baked ham with all the trimmings. The cost is $7 per person. The Christmas dinner will be Friday, Dec. 13. The cost will be $5 a person.

The members were informed that Sallye Sykes, Bob Jones and Lucy Elmore are on the election committee this year. The election of new officers will be Friday, Dec. 6.

Jan Neitzke gave her report on the last two trips of the 2013 year. The day trip to the Cumberland County Playhouse on Nov. 26 is $37, and the monies are due Nov. 1. The day trip to see the Rockettes will be Dec. 4. The monies were due Oct. 11, so if you have not paid, see Jan.

All who volunteer, please put your name and hours on the bulletin board. This is very important for the record keeper.

Nancy Fincher, the sunshine lady, gave her report on all the sick members and asked the members to keep them in their prayers and also to not forget prayers for the many military men and women. Thank you, Nancy.

The entertainment this week was Jay Fox, who was just wonderful. The members are always glad to see Fox because they enjoy his many songs. Also Sharon Hilton announced that Fox is looking to get a prosthesis so he can stand on two feet again, but it is very costly so she asked if the members could donate any monies to help out.

After blessing, Fred Zoeller and helpers served a delicious fish meal with the members bringing in side dishes and desserts. Until the next gathering, have a blessed week.

  • 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.
