Enjoy Gospel Trio at Fair Park

CROSSVILLE — We may all be busy, but as we get closer to Thanksgiving Day, we all have reasons to be thankful. Join Fair Park Senior Center this Friday morning as the Gospel Trio comes to sing at 9:45 a.m. They have sung at 23 events this past year. The trio were in the Crossville’s Got Talent Show as well as at Pioneer Day.

It is always fun to hear Naomi Hicks yodel. She is originally from Knoxville. Virgil and his wife are from California. This trio came together in harmony at the Memorial Baptist Church. Come join in on the songs you know and love with the Gospel Trio this Friday morning, play some bingo sponsored by United Grocery Outlet and get signed up for lunch.

Remember, the senior center will be closed for Thanksgiving and the Friday after.

Christmas will be here real soon. So how do you get in the mood? By getting tickets to the fourth annual Lucas and Friends Christmas Variety Show, which is set for Saturday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. at the Palace. It's always a wonderful show to go to each year. Make it a tradition.

Tickets are only $10 per seat and are available at the senior center or by calling Ruth or Wayne Lucas at 248-2487. Hey! It’s time to get ready for the holidays, folks!

Maybe you’re a senior who is a little lonely. Visit Fair Park Senior Center and meet some new friends soon.

  • 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.
