Hospice Auxiliary Holiday Ball a great success

CROSSVILLE — Celebrating the 25th Annual Hospice Auxiliary Holiday Ball, the Fairfield Glade Auxiliary hosted its major fundraising event of the year on Sunday, Dec. 1 at Druid Hills Country Club. In keeping with the silver anniversary theme, auxiliary members and their husbands decorated Legends featuring glistening silver and white additions and doves to symbolize Hospice. The sparkling decorations and beautiful Christmas trees can be enjoyed the entire month of December by all guests at Druid Hills. Event Tri-Chairs Sherry Koch, Cece Trachy and Kathy Small would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the silent and live auctions, as well as the many individuals and merchants who donated wonderful items to help our fundraising efforts.

As guests arrived in their glittering holiday attire, bidding began in the Fireside Room for the many silent auction items. A fabulous gourmet dinner followed the silent auction and the live auction was handled by Gordon Stack of PEG Broadcasting. We are so appreciative for Gordon for taking on this task, which is much different from his radio broadcasting duties. The dancing continued until 10 p.m. with guests enjoying the terrific music of The Bill Sleeter Trio from Nashville.

Vacation get-away packages, jewelry, artwork, gift certificates for dinners and massages are just some of the auction items donated by both businesses and individuals. We thank everyone who responded to our letters of request, plus the many auxiliary members who donated beautifully decorated themed gift baskets. Local Crossville participants are: Crouch Investment Group, Inc., Fairfield Glade Community Club, Nature's Way Center for Massage Therapy with Terry Owens, Cumberland County Playhouse, Peavine Wine & Spirits, Hair Diva’s Salon, Kelly’s Spa Cottage, Anderson Shuttle Service, Woodworker Rob Brown, Doris Small of Brownstones Boutique and Spa, Cumberland Medical Center/Wellness Complex, Cahoots General Store, Massage by Beckie Cain, NCLMT, PGA Director of Golf Steve Kraft, 5th Street Marketplace, Fairfield Beauty Shop, PGA Professionals Jeff Houston & Jeremy Jones, Massages by Beth Cunningham and Barbara Sutch at CMC Wellness Complex, Lois Rupert of Cookie Lee Jewelry, Bead & Fiber Artist Judi Moenck, Kristy Meadows of Saffron Salon & Herb Co., Campbell’s Pool & Spa, Brenda Wright of Above & Beyond Salon, Stagecoach Place Café, Judy & Bob Henderson, BaLou’s Furniture Gallery, Cindy & Jim Marentette, Collage - Sue Brown and Linda Chiaramonte, and Day’s Gone By.

Our local residents will benefit greatly from our auxiliary’s 25th Annual Holiday Ball. The funds raised will benefit Hospice of Cumberland County’s Cumberland House, the six-bed residential hospice facility. We are grateful we can donate these funds to continue Hospice of Cumberland County's mission to provide comprehensive physical, emotional and spiritual care for individuals and families promoting the highest quality of living during life-limiting illness and bereavement. “Adding life to days when days can no longer be added to life” is the mission of our organization. We thank everyone who so generously contributed to our fundraising effort for the only non-profit local hospice organization in Cumberland County.

  • County residents urged to vote

    Cumberland County has around 39,000 registered voters, as well as a strong reputation for voter participation.  However, as of press time on Tuesday, only 4,300 residents had taken advantage of early voting for the Aug. 7 primary and general elections. Local officials are predicting less than 50 percent of registered voters will cast their vote in the 14 days of early voting, plus election day. Only 23 percent of registered county voters participated in the May elections.

    No one can get away with telling Naiad Kuhlman of Crossville that age is a barrier to exercise. The avid runner, personal trainer and instructor at Cumberland Medical Center’s Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade won’t buy the excuse.

  • Enjoying nature.jpg Get your mink coat on the road

    It is interesting what animals you see crossing the roads sometimes. When animals cross roads, you can get a look at them, that wouldn't be possible if they stayed inside the cover of trees or grass. Sometimes, it is just a fleeting glance and you aren't sure what you saw. When you go into the woods looking for animals, they usually hide or leave the area before you even know they are around. But, roads are wide open with no cover. Also, most mammals are nocturnal, so they are out when we aren't. Anytime that I am on a two-lane road at night, I am always watching intently for wildlife in the headlights.

  • Abacus Column: Tennessee the third most corrupt state in the U.S.?

    According to a recent article in Time magazine, Tennessee is ranked third among U.S. States in political corruption. I am not sure how they measure such crime in order to make such a charge. Does some purveyor of statistics identify the number of elected officials proved guilty in a court of law; or merely charged with corruption?

    Three and a half years ago, a local no-kill animal welfare organization known as A Time 4 Paws (AT4P) received an important email. A Nashville animal shelter volunteer asked if AT4P could take two severely abused English Pointer mixes.
