127 SENIORS: Share Your Skills on the Annual Crossville’s Got Talent | Lifestyles


On Friday August 13, the meeting was opened by Vice President Sheila Johnson, with a prayer led by Arlene Simmons. This was followed by the Oath of Allegiance led by Tom Simmons.

The list of those whose birthdays were in August were read and those present were greeted with a happy birthday from the members, with piano accompaniment by Tom Fincher.

In the Sunshine Report, we were asked to keep Lee Heffner and Carl Brooks in our prayers, as well as Janice Hall who spends her time with Carl as much as she can. Anna Cox is also recovering.

Arlene Simmons thanked the members for keeping her sister in prayer. She is better thanks to your prayers.

Our recent hallway sale, our biggest fundraiser of the year, went very well, bringing in $ 5,500. Members were instrumental in setting up and pricing the items, as well as taking them down. A big thank you to everyone who contributed to its success.

One vendor who has since become a new member even went home and baked cookies for our bake sale when we ran out of products. Thanks Phyllis!

Leonard Hollender contributed a joke for the reunion and also recalled the upcoming Crossville’s Got Talent show to be held on Saturday, September 25 at the Palace.

We are also displaying posters for another fundraiser, The Music of the Cumberlands, which will take place on Saturday October 2nd. It features several of our artists, so be sure to purchase your tickets.

The center will host a community fall dance from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on August 28. The dance is open to people aged 50 and over. The outfit is casual. DJ Garrison will spin the 50s and 60s and some country tunes for the pleasure of dancing. There will be a cake walk and a door prize.

Admission is $ 5 per person.

Gene Brown reminded us that his band will be resuming the regular Saturday night shows featuring country music. This program is free and the public is invited. They play from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Annie Lewis, who managed the kitchen for the hallway sale, thanked everyone who signed up to work during the sale. You all helped make this a successful sale. She then also asked people to sign up to work in the kitchen as well as dishwashers, scrapers and wipers for next Friday. The sign-up sheet has been distributed. Since we are self-funded, anything you can sign up for will be greatly appreciated. If you are new, the jobs will be explained as to what is involved.

Sheila also asked if anyone is aware of setting up a Facebook page, it would be wonderful if we could create one to keep the public up to date with what we have to offer here at this center.

She then introduced one of our favorite artists and members, Judy Fistler, who sang a wide variety of music from yesteryear. We all enjoyed it.

After Judy the doors were opened for lunch and Bob Jones guided us with the song The Manna Prayer and reminded us that if we are not familiar with this song it is written in our membership booklets.
