CROSSVILLE — On May 10, the members of the 127 Senior Center had a good time socializing, playing bingo, dominos and billiards. Numbers were called by Arlene Simmons, with the prizes furnished by Bob Folger, with State Farm Insurance.

Emil Neitzke opened the general meeting at 10:40 a.m., with Joy Moyer giving the opening prayer and Harold Moyer leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jan Neitzke gave her monthly treasurer's report as well as the report on the trips for 2013. The bus for the May 18 trip to the Sutton General Store in Granville will leave at 2 p.m. (please arrive at 1:30 p.m.) The June trip to the United Kingdom is sold out. The July 9 trip to the Sunshine Hollow Day Lily Farm has available seats.

The Aug. 13 trip to the Jack Daniels Distillery is sold out. The Sept. 22 trip to Mackinac Island has seats available. The October trip to Dollywood is sold out.

On May 24, there will be a memorial service for members who went to their heavenly home in 2012. Leonard Hollender is in charge. Please bring your memories and stories to him ASAP.

The center's annual picnic will be at Obed Park July 19, starting at 9 a.m., weather permitting. The corridor sale will be organized by Lucy Elmore and Elaine Mumme, with Jan Neitzke taking care of the kitchen.

Members thank Sandy Devine for all her work in the past as "Birthday Lady." The new "Birthday Lady" will be Mary Brown. Nancy Fincher, the sunshine lady, reported on all the members who are sick and asked for prayers for their speedy recovery. She also requested they keep the military in their prayers, too.

The entertainment was provided by actor/singer Dennis Donald with his mom, Diane, with some great songs by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and many more.

After the dinner prayer, they enjoyed a delicious pasta dish, with the side dishes and desserts furnished by the members.
