127 South Senior Center offers weekly bluegrass performance

CROSSVILLE — The weekly meeting of the 127 South Senior Center was called to order by President Emil Neitzke at 10:37 a.m. One guest was introduced, Henry Breiner, and the newest member, Billy Bertolino. Welcome!

Emil told everyone about an upcoming Master Gardeners show at the fairgrounds on April 26 and 27. On the 26, seniors will be treated to a tea from 1 to 4 p.m. Entry fee is $3.

Members were reminded to bring in any items that they care to contribute for the summer corridor sale. Jan gave a trip report, reminding everyone of the first trip of the year to Renfro Valley on March 8. They will be leaving at 2:10 p.m. So be sure to be there by 2:10 p.m. You have to sign in with Jan before loading on the bus. They will be having dinner there at about 6 p.m. eastern time and return home about 9 p.m.

In April, they will be going to Memphis and Tunica from April 15-19. This trip is sold out. In June, some members will be taking the big trip of the year, traveling to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. This trip is also sold out.

On July 9, they will visit Day Lily Farm, where they will have a tour by wagon and lunch. On Aug. 13, they will be visiting the Jack Daniels Distillary and having lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's. Fee of $47 is due by July 1.

In September, they will have two trips to Mackinac Island, MI. The first bus is sold out, but there are four seats available on the second bus. Talk to Jan if you are interested in the available seats.

For any of these trips, contact Jan Neitzke at 788-3667. Make note that this is the correct number to reach her for trip information.

Members were reminded that there is bluegrass music by Gene Brown and his group at 127 Senior Center every Thursday evening, beginning at 6 p.m. Everyone in the community is welcome to this free musical evening.

Following the meeting, entertainment for the day was wonderful music by Frank Saxton, who sang and played several different instruments and was accompanied by Catherine on the keyboard. They played beautiful and toe-tapping renditions of many different musical numbers.

After the entertainment, a fine lunch was served by Sharon and the kitchen volunteers and include the numerous dishes contributed by the members.

They were reminded to bring dishes that would serve six to eight people to the meetings and all able members are asked to sign up to help in the kitchen or serve coffee and help with the cleanup following lunch. The sign-up sheets are available on the wall of the dining room. A little work by all able members make things run smoothly.

Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

  • 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.
