RHA to close 2012 with Regina Stephens as guest artist

CROSSVILLE — Highly respected and talented Regina Stephens will appear as the guest artist for the Fairfield Glade Resident Homeowners meeting on Monday, Nov. 26, at the Legends at 6 p.m. Regina opened up the 2011 year for RHA, is a local native, and is known in Cumberland County with a voice that has had the plateau applauding for years.

Regina will be assisted on the piano by Rebecca Gentry, who is also known widely in the area. She started playing the piano at the age of 4, studied at East Tennessee State University, gives piano lessons throughout the area and accompanies the Glade Methodist Choir and the Cumberland County Chorus.

Regina spent three years as a member of the Big South Fork Opry, has appeared in many fund raising concerts as well as providing backup for other vocalists, has worked numerous times with Dennis Donald and DSquared Productions, and will be appearing with Dennis and Jason Ross on Dec. 10 at the new Event Center in “Christmas Treasures.” She is the owner and Manager of R & B Cafe’ at Peavine Plaza on Peavine Road. Some of her other many talents include playing piano, keyboard and flute. She has produced her own “Harmonies” show at the Palace and works closely with the Tommie Dee shows. You can see her hard at work at her Café’ on Peavine Road, and hear her perform the first Friday of each month at her dinner shows with area performers.

Another highlight of the evening will be the unveiling of the 2012 Glade Citizen of the year. Started in 2008 by President Keith Pontius, this will be the fifth recipient, recognizing one that contributed much to the community. Previous citizens recognized were Larry and June Frazier, Bill and Betty Johnson, Joan Paton, and Lloyd and Ann Tripp.

President Randy Budd will be handing over the gavel to the 2013 President Dennis Donald. Other officers to be installed are Diane Donald, first vp; Carol Pontius, treasurer; chaplain, Dick Gillen; Caring and Sharing – Sally Winston; 50-50 Chair, Suzanne Williams; Name Badge, Jane Scott; and publicity, Keith Pontius. Volunteers are still being sought for secretary and third vp and help will be greatly appreciated.

As we close out a wonderful 2012 season, it is also necessary for us to urge everyone (all residents are eligible) to either renew their membership for 2013, or sign up for the first time. President-elect Donald has a great lineup of entertainers already booked for 2013, opening in January with the very popular Brian Bacon, music director of the St. Francis of Assisi Choir and conductor of the Cumberland County Community Band. Others to perform are Terri Utsey, a noted young singer from the area, Patrice Puglise, Terry Henderson, and 17-year-old Taylor Ware, a great yodeler who performed here five years ago and now has an entirely new act to share with us.

2013 will be the 40th year for RHA, the oldest organization in the Glade, organized specifically to afford a time for residents to fellowship with their neighbors, keep up with Community Club actions, and enjoy a wonderful meal and entertainment.

Dues for 2013 will be $12 per member, but if you sign up before Dec. 31, your cost will only be $10. You can also sign up by mailing your check to Box 2017, Fairfield Glade, TN 38558. Note that RHA meets the fourth Monday of each month, except May and December. Menu for Nov. 26 is grilled ham steak and all the fixings.

For a wonderful night out, reserve Nov. 26 for RHA at Legends. Call in reservations by Nov. 21 to June or Larrilee Frazier at 484-5914, or email to to reserve your seat. It is requested that you pay your meals by check. Men are requested to wear jackets, but it is not mandatory, and everyone is asked to wear a name badge so others can learn to know you. Special RHA badges can be ordered at the meeting. If you want to make up your own table of six or eight, you may do that when you make reservations. A social Hour begins at 5 p.m. and dinner is at 6 p.m.

  • Tracking tracks.jpg Tracking down old tracks

    It is perceived that the lumber business was profitable and extensive throughout the entire area of the current Glade and along much of the path of the described rail from the Glade all the way to Dorton. While our previous reports detailed much about the track of the Cumberland Northern, most of the reported discovery was north of Peavine and east of the four-way stop near the new Wyndham reception center (and east toward Antioch).

  • Friends group plans Elbe River cruise

    Our “Friends Traveling Together” group at Fairfield Glade was eagerly anticipating a Russia river cruise with a pre-trip to Ukraine this summer. World events, as it sometimes happens, caused us to rethink those plans. Undeterred, however, we will be embarking instead on an Elbe River cruise from Berlin, Germany to Prague on Aug. 10-22.

  • Abacus Column: Rooting for the prodigal daughter's success

    Around June of 2006, I wrote an article for the Chronicle and Glade Sun entitled, “Tonya Hinch: A Prodigal Daughter Returns to Crossville." I had been requested to meet and write about Tonya by a friend and local writer. “Why me,” I asked; “You are a good writer.” “Maybe so,” he replied; “but I don’t speak business, you do.”

  • Enjoying Nature.jpg Enjoying Nature: Keeping up with the bluebirds

    There may not be a prettier bird than our Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis, (pronounced cee-AL-ee-a cee-AL-iss). Bluebirds stay here in Tennessee all year, and, in the winter, you will often see groups of five or six at a time coming to your suet or mealworm feeder. But this time of year, you'll generally only see two at a time, because once a pair establishes a territory, they will chase off all potential rivals.
