‘Holiday Meet and Greet’ will be Aug. 9, hosted by Diaper Bank

Cumberland County Diaper Bank invites you to come and shop for Christmas, judge the best decorated table, win prizes, and meet some local agencies who are helping needy children in Cumberland County and have a great time!

CCDB's Holiday Meet & Greet will be held Monday, Aug. 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Village Green Mall in Fairfield Glade.

Caring Hearts will have a bake sale featuring a few Christmas cookies. Caring Hearts volunteers will also have Christmas stockings for you to pick from to help provide gifts for needy children at Christmas time and where the drop-off points are located. CCDB will have baby items on sale in order for this caring community to help "nurture" this program to help the "littlest victims" of need, neglect and violence in the county.

Lois Rupert will have Cookie Lee Jewelry, Treasa Adkins will have Avon, Suzann Griffith will have Mary Kay, Stacey Bryant will offer scrapbooking, and Katy Stephens of Habitat will play a selection of Christmas music on the keyboard to get everyone in a festive mood.

Some other agencies for you to meet include Neighbors and Newcomers, Neighbors Together and B4Books. So plan on coming out on Aug. 9 and bring a friend with you! A great time is always better when shared.

Caring Hearts volunteers have sewn and crocheted 500 Christmas stockings this year, and will be filling them at their monthly meeting in November. Members are having their annual "Coins for Christmas" campaign to help with the cost of stocking stuffers. If you would like to make a donation, please bring your wrapped coins to Regions Bank, 175 Miller Avenue, Crossville, or bring them to the Meet & Greet on Aug. 9. Organizers appreciate your support.

If that is not convenient for you, you can send a check to: Caring Hearts, c/o Regions Bank, 175 Miller Ave., Crossville, TN 38555 Attn: Robbie D. Wightman. Caring Hearts is registered with the IRS.

  • 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.
