‘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.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
