Jones entertains 127 Seniors

CROSSVILLE — Following the bingo games, with numbers called by Arlene Simmons and gifts donated by Quality Home Health, the general meeting of the 127 Seniors was called to order by President Emil Neitzke at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 6. The meeting was opened with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Emil informed the membership that since Kroger no longer offers gift coupons, they are asked to provide the numbers from their Kroger cards and there will be credit issued to the 127 Senior Center from Kroger. He also asked for members’ email addresses as they are required by Kroger.

He asked for volunteers to work in the kitchen for next week while many members are on the Mackinac Island trip. He passed sheets around requesting members to sign up. He also informed them that Ginny Herbert will no longer manage the kitchen and that Fred Zoeller and Anna Cox with handle it now jointly. 

He informed the membership of two recent passings of members, one being Bob Brown, whose service was last week, and Avonelle McCormack. They will be missed. 

The treasurer’s report will be given in two weeks, following the two Mackinac Island trips. If anyone needs anything during the time many board members are on these trips, call Mary Borman, Fred Whittaker or Sallye Sykes.

Jan and Emil visited Ron Mansavage and Jim Visage, who has returned home following his recent surgery and even showed up at Hardee’s for breakfast yesterday. All members who had birthdays and anniversaries were announced, congratulated and good wishes sung by the membership. 

Then Emil welcomed member Bob Jones, who was the entertainer and sang some beautiful songs. Following the entertainment, they all enjoyed a wonderful meat loaf prepared by Elaine Mumme and her kitchen partners. No one went home hungry.

  • Pleasant Hill Ramblings CSA.jpg Pleasant Hill Ramblings: CSAs are a win-win situation

    Every Wednesday after 1 p.m. from May through October, there is a steady stream of people converging on the kitchen of Heritage Hall on Church St. in Pleasant Hill with baskets and bags. Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

  • 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.
