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.

  • 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.
