Santa schedules Crossville stop Dec. 2

CROSSVILLE — Santa will make his annual appearance at the Crossville Model Railroad Club on Monday, Dec. 2. Santa’s arrival will be the finale of the Polar Express event that draws kids and their families to the Crossville Outlet Mall to kick off the holiday season.

This free event will start at noon with 4,500 square feet of model trains running all day in the club, decorated for the holiday season with lights, a tree and Christmas Village. At 6 p.m. Mrs. Claus will read The Polar Express to the gathered children, while a scale model of the famous train runs on nearby tracks. Then the big guy in the red suit will arrive to sit in his sleigh and let the young ones sit on his lap while they tell him what they want for Christmas.

A professional photographer will be on hand to take free photos of the children with Santa as the club’s gift to the community.

The Crossville Model Railroad Club is located in the Crossville Outlet Mall, exit 320 off I-40, next to Subway in the north end of the mall, and is open six days per week. Hours are Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 5 and Saturday from 10 to 5. Admission is always free.

Also included is the Upper Cumberland Railroad Society museum, open to the public free of charge. For information email cmrrc@juno.com, call (931) 742-0151 or see the club’s website at www.crossvillemodelrrclub.org.

  • 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.

  • 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.
