Songs, special guests, shopping, style and sharing at Feb. Ladies Club meeting

CROSSVILLE — Feb. 5 will find members of the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club back at the Community and  Conference Center for the monthly luncheon and meeting. Songstress Patti Payne will entertain in her own special way with Songs of Romance. A favorite local talent, the program is certain to appeal to all.

Members are encouraged to invite a "special someone" to this meeting. It may be a spouse, best friend or someone new to The Glade. Just be sure to include the name of your guest when making reservations on Jan. 29. As a courtesy, you may email reservations ( now or at any time until 10 a.m. If it is more convenient, you may call 210-0067 between 8 and 10 a.m. Be sure to include the names of those wishing to sit together. Cancellations must be received by 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, or you will be responsible for the cost of the meal ($13). The menu will feature hearty beef stroganoff over egg noodles, veggie, rolls, beverage and Chef’s sweet surprise ending.

Viva Bosland, president, has invited Tommy French, a 13-year veteran of the U.S. Army Reserve, to lead the Pledge of Allegiance. Louise Goodman will give the invocation.

Now for sharing. Representatives of AARF (All about Rescue and Fixin’, Inc.) will be present to accept your donations for furry friends. Maybe you have a pet you love or would like to donate in memory of one you lost…just remember these creatures are dependent on the aid of humans. Specific needs are for laundry detergent, bleach, antibacterial hand soap, paper towels, disposable gloves, Lysol spray, kitchen and sandwich bags, dog collars and leashes (new or used), flea prevention, clean used towels, small soft baby blankets, dog crates of any size (new or used), metal food and water bowls, Petco, Walmart or Tractor Supply gift cards, or even gas gift cards for transport of the animals to their forever homes. At this time cash donations toward puppy and kitten food are preferred so they may be kept on the same brand to avoid upset tummies.

Everyone loves shopping. Check out the items at the silent auction at the far end of the ballroom. Denise Armstrong, project chair, and her assistant, Lynn Varack, report that wonderful items will be available for perusal from 10 a.m. until just before the entertainment begins. Artwork stained and fused glass, Cumberland County Playhouse tickets and a cooking class for six are some of the items to tempt you. If you prefer the spirits, an in-home wine tasting is available. Two tickets to the fabulous production of Warhorse at TPAC in Nashville will be featured. Maybe you would prefer a driveway pressure washing. How about a $200 travel gift certificate, golf for four, or wearable art? All these and much more will be on view and waiting for your bid. All you have to do is remember to bring some extra cash or a check!

Style, last but not least, comes to mind. Sharon Gee and Diane Wilmer, co-chairs of the fashion show, are excited about the event on April 2. Be sure to look for the beautiful lighted Eiffel Tower to get your tickets for April in Paris. Seating is limited, reserved and going quickly.
