Ladies Club annual spring fashion show was a success

CROSSVILLE — Living up to the theme of ‘Sizzle with Style’ Sue Brown and Linda Chiaramonte, Co-Chairs, oversaw a successful Spring Fashion Show for members and guests of the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club. On April 3, over 300 delighted women (and a few men) viewed this season’s latest spring, sport and resort wear. 

Colorful spring flowers on the tables and lush greenery decorating the room provided by major sponsors, Heartland Florist and Landscape Solutions, our neighbors on Peavine Rd, assured us spring had arrived. 

Modeling spring fashions and accessories from Collage, The Screen Door and FG Golf and Tennis Shops were: Terry Boylson, Liz Clark, Sharon Gee, Tina Geisler, Barbara LeFevre, Jackie McAfee, Marti Miller, Sheri Prediger, Marilyn Seastrand and Julie Steele.  Stylists from Eclipse Salon were on hand for last minute primping as was make-up artist Jean Elizabeth Kozolowski.

To the sounds of background music by the talented Brian Bacon, handsome tuxedoed spouses, Michael Brown and George Chiaramonte, manned the runway as the ladies strutted their stuff.

A highlight of the day was the award of 23 themed gift baskets provided by the generous contributions of club members and local businesses. Neighbors, card groups and committees vied to come up with tempting selections which guests had the opportunity to take home. Over $2,600 was raised from this effort alone, a testament to the excitement with which the baskets were received.

The guests had a delicious meal, were entertained royally, learned what is new for spring and summer, enjoyed a much anticipated spring outing and helped raise $6,100 for the Pam Biggs Scholarship Fund in one day! This is truly an example of the adage "many hands make light work," as our grandmothers said. In June, 19 deserving students from Cumberland County will be at the luncheon meeting to receive their scholarship grants courtesy of the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club.

  • 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.
