Fairfield Glade Ladies Club to meet on Oct. 2

CROSSVILLE — It’s almost fall - the days will be a bit cooler, the leaves will start turning and then we realize it is time to get out warmer clothes. For members and guests of the Fairfield Glade Ladies Club, one of the first fall activities occurs on the second day of October when all will enjoy an interesting meeting, informative speakers and a delicious luncheon.

The Program Committee has invited four very special community leaders to speak to us about what’s new in Cumberland County. Tammy Collins, MD, Director of the new walk-in clinic at the Cumberland Medical Center facility in Fairfield Glade, will give us the latest on what to expect. Earlier this summer, Don Andrews began his duties as the new Director of Schools (DOS) for the Cumberland County Schools. Dr. Andrews will introduce himself and share his ideas for the school system. Dr. William Andrew Todd’s topic will be infectious disease. On a lighter note, we will hear from Brad Allamong, President and CEO of the Crossville Chamber of Commerce, who will tell us what is new in his department.

Our honored veteran for the month is Russ Schubert, Lt Col, U.S. Army retired, and President of MOAA, who will lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Club President, Viva Bosland, has invited member Brenda Hinch to give the invocation.

The Service Committee asks us to continue thinking of the local children this month. But no shopping! Baskets will be passed for cash donations for the Emergency Closet for Cumberland County Schools. The money could be used for any number of situations which may prevent a child from being successful – perhaps no breakfast nor lunch money, no heavy clothing for the winter months, no suitable shoes, no money to purchase school supplies, etc. The basket for hotel toiletries for donation to local charities will be front and center. It has come to our attention that sometimes used or open items have been placed in the baskets. All items must be unopened and, in the case of toothbrushes, etc., must be sealed or in their unopened sleeves. The most obvious reason for this is hygiene and health laws. The secondary reason is that occasionally those opened items spill and ooze and therefore ruin a great many items as well as our baskets! Only new and unopened items please.

Doors open at 10 a.m. so you will have ample time to visit the committee tables, have a beverage and visit with others. Members should be seated by 11 a.m. for the business meeting. Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. and the program will begin immediately following the meal. The time change is by popular request and will make it easier for those who have afternoon obligations.

Members of the Ways and Means Committee will be present to accept your donated items and books for the Book, Bake and Bargainza (BB&B) Sale. If it is more convenient, you may take them to Unit 161 at Glade Stor ‘N Lock behind Manny’s on any Saturday thru Oct. 5 between 9 a.m. and noon. Sign-up sheets will be on the tables for donations of baked goods for the BB&B. If you don’t want to get your oven dirty, cash will be gratefully accepted. The

BB&B has expanded to two days this year. Mark your calendar and plan to attend on Friday, Oct. 11, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. or Saturday, Oct. 12, from 8 a.m. until noon.

Not to be missed is a stop at the Travel Table to see what Rosemary and the Travel Committee have in store for you. If you have reservations for the Keeneland or Atlanta trips, you may pick up your travel documents at the meeting.

The membership committee has had a busy few months compiling the 2013-'14 Yearbooks, a copy of which will be at each seat. If you are picking one up for a friend or neighbor, check with the membership committee table at the end of the hall. Of course, if you are new and want to join (annual dues are $15 and are payable now) or forgot your name tag, that is also where you take care of this.

Remember call-in day is Wednesday, Sept. 25, when volunteers will be available between the hours of 8 and 10 a.m. at 210-0067 to take your reservations. If it is more convenient, you may email ffglcreservations@yahoo.com with the names of those in your group. A confirmation email will be sent. Cancellations must be made by Friday, Sept. 27, or you will be responsible for the cost of your meal ($13).

The menu for the luncheon is comfort food: meatloaf, whipped potatoes, veggie medley, rolls, beverages and, of course, a chef’s surprise sweet ending. A heart healthy chef’s salad is available but must be ordered when making your reservation.

  • Abacus Column: Fairfield Glade golf courses — a product of talent, desire and commitment

    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. My friend and I often comment about the excellent condition of our courses and since we had opportunity to pass a compliment on to Rob, we did.
