The first “Crossville’s Got Talent” was a great show; just ask anyone who was there! The Palace Theatre was almost full. Everyone in the audience along with those that participant had a fun time, even if they didn’t win.

We would like to thank our main sponsor, Kroger for being there, and giving their support. Thanks to Six Flags over Georgia and Dollywood Amusement Parks. Also thanks to our local video/audio specialist, Tony Perry, for adding to the show and also recording it. If you missed it, anyone can pick up a copy of the show on DVD, at Star Productions on Main Street for $15.

Fair Park really appreciates the talented entertainer D.J and his wife Donna for being the masters of ceremonies. Great job! Thanks to the wonderful judges Jim Crabtree, Julia Stone, and Angela Robbins for their show biz expertise. Also, thanks to the audience who bought tickets and had the final vote.

A very special thank you to all the many different talented performers, who did such a wonderful job entertaining us, making the evening so special. They were all winners!

The first-place winner was the Seven Pine Band, which surprised everyone in the last act, with “Eight Second Ride.” The band consisted of Leonard Sloan, Cameron Sink and Brandon Luttrell, Lance, Knox, and Jack Marshall.

Second place was 11-year-old Timothy Hawn who amazed us playing the piano. Third place went to 11-year-old Mary Kemp with a fun tap dance.

Thanks to all for their support of the Fair Park Senior Center. There will be more great talent shows in the future that you do not want to miss!

One of the contestants from the show, 16-year-old Karri Netherton, will be singing for the seniors before bingo this Friday at 9:45 a.m. She has her own kind of country style! Everyone is invited to come.

The seniors at Fair Park Senior Center, are winners too, for being a part of so many activities every day at the center which is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is located across the street from the Cumberland County Fairgrounds, at 1433 Livingston Road in Crossville.
