Deadline for Nov. 25 RHA show is today

CROSSVILLE — The concluding show of the 40th Anniversary Year for the Fairfield Glade Resident Home Owners Association is set for Monday, Nov. 25, at The Legends, 6 p.m. Three top artists promise a very memorable evening of enjoying the antics of Jason Ross, the sweet idyllic music of Ashley Krohn, and Dennis Donald sharing a number of his very favorite pieces.  You will not want to miss this very special evening.

During 2013, residents have enjoyed grand shows including Brian Bacon, Terry Henderson, Taylor Ware, Jason Sanders, Teri Utsey, Keith Walther, comedian Tom Vorjohan and the Plateau Old Time German Band. A top-notch show is being pursued for January plus another good slate of programs. Suggestions are appreciated.

If you have never attended an RHA meeting, now is the time to make that reservation and see why our local residents enjoy this opportunity to meet and greet their neighbors. New residents – feel comfortable to come join us. You can sit with your friends, or we will get you seated with  new friends. It is family at RHA! Non-members can attend by paying $6 per person for the entertainment, plus the meal cost of $17 per person, which includes tax and tip. Dues and the entertainment fee are all that RHA receives to cover the cost of the entertainment. The menu for Nov. 25 will feature roast beef with red wine demi sauce, whipped potatoes, broccoli and carrots, side house salad and a chef’s sweet selection.

At the October meeting of RHA, members were given several options about the future of this organization, and it was overwhelmingly agreed to continue in 2014 with a revised format – holding seven meetings during the year – January-April and September-November, with membership dues set at $12 for the year. Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of these seven months, starting with a social hour from 5-6 p.m., dinner and program from 6 – 8 p.m. Dues for 2014 will be accepted at the Nov. 25 meeting.

To make your reservations, Call Carol Pontius at 484-3138, or email to

If you don’t get a confirmation back, send again, or call to be sure your reservation was properly recorded. Your participation is greatly appreciated. Deadline for reservations is Thursday, Nov. 21.

Note that if you make a reservation and do not attend, you are responsible for payment of the meal as RHA must guarantee the number of reservations on Nov. 21.

When making your reservations, you can make up your own table of six or eight, or you can just reserve for yourself and we will get you seated with a good group. If you do have a group, have one person try to make the reservations for all.

Men are requested to wear jackets; ties are optional. Attendees are asked to wear a name badge to help everyone get acquainted. A badge will be provided if you do not have one, or you will be able to buy a special RHA badge for use next year.

For easier reference for the treasurer, we ask that whenever possible, please write a check for your meals and/or entertainment. RHA is strictly a social event featuring a good dinner and entertainment.

The slate of officers presented at the October meeting for the 2014 year were: Diane Donald and Keith Pontius, co-presidents; Dennis Donald – 2nd VP; Karen Robinson – secretary; Carol Pontius – treasurer; Caring and Sharing – Sally Winston; 50-50 Chair – Suzanne Williams.

    On a recent Friday morning, a friend and I were playing the back nine of Dorchester Golf course. At the tee box on the unique par three 13th Hole, we met a young gentleman named Rob Krumple. Rob is a course maintenance employee reporting to Dorchester Superintendent Mike Wilson.
