Who was that heartless and greedy little man who climbed up a tree?  To find out, you’ll have to come to St. Alphonsus’ Liguori Hall on Friday, August 3, at 7:00 P.M., or Saturday, August 4, at 11:00 A.M., which will be magically transformed into the once sinful city of Jericho, circa early A.D.  That’s when the talented Youth Group of St. Alphonsus will present the toe-tapping, finger snapping production of “What’s Up Zak”?

Children are always delightfully entertaining and these kids will enthrall you even more than most.  You will be captivated by them along with the music, dancing, the period costumes and authenticated props made by talented volunteers.  Laughing and clapping is allowed because restraining anyone would be impossible.  You’ll leave humming the tunes sung by the children and so skillfully played by Marian Sullivan, Crossville’s noted pianist.

Mark your calendars for either Friday, August 3, at 7:00 P.M., or Saturday, August 4, at 11:00 a.m. to see “What’s Up Zak”.  The program is free of charge but donations will be accepted to help fund next year’s show.

HEBBERTSBURG’S FIREFIGHTERS’ FUND RAISER!

Have you been planning to come to the Hebbertsburg Community Dinner-Dance ‘one-of-these-days’? This is a warning…there are only two opportunities left this year.  The next one is…

SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 2012…Mark it on your calendar. It is the annual Hebbertsburg Fire Department’s FUND RAISER PICNIC and DANCE from 5 P.M. to 9 P.M. CST, at the Hebbertsburg Community Center.

The Hebbertsburg Fire Hall is a very important part of this little community, located miles from anywhere else. All the firefighters are local volunteers, who are dedicated to protecting their families, friends and neighbors in times of fires and other emergencies. The Fire Hall services all of the Hebbertsburg and Smith Mountain area. While they sometimes get a small grant from VEC, the bulk of their operating monies come from this annual Fund Raiser. There are always needs in the fire house – equipment must be kept up to date to insure the fire fighters can do their jobs promptly and safely.

So, what can you expect when you make the trek over the mountain to Hebbertsburg on Saturday, August 4?

FOOD…lots of good food starting at 5 P.M.: Hot dogs, sloppy Joes, pasta salad, slaw, soft drinks, and desserts.  And cakewalks, don’t forget our ‘fun and famous’ cakewalks for only $1. Plus DANCING…and MUSIC! Music will be provided by The Tradewinds, featuring Oldies, Blues and Classic Country starting at 6 P.M.  So, put on your comfortable ‘stompin’ shoes, grab your favorite partner, and come on down.

 

Admission is FREE. There will be a donation BOOT and all donations are greatly appreciated. The cost for a complete meal is only $6, or, you can buy individual snack-bar items.

Need directions? It’s a beautiful ten minute drive through rural Tennessee country. From the 4-Way-Stop on Peavine Road in FFG head north (away from I-40) for about 5 miles.  You’ll go over the big bridge at Daddy’s Creek, past a small cemetery on the right, past the Hebbertsburg Fire Hall also on the right, and then to a Y in the road with a house in the center. Take the LEFT fork of the Y.  The blue Community Center building is just a block down the road on the left.

Have questions or want to make a donation, call Tony – 931-265-0203.

 

AVALON IN NEED OF SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Every year about this time numerous individuals and agencies contact the Avalon Center to inquire about Avalon’s provision of school supplies, including backpacks, to school aged children. Avalon works not only with its own clients and their families but also with local schools in its service areas to help make these supplies available to low income students.

In Cumberland County about 18% of the households are below poverty level. Especially in these households, purchasing all that is listed on school supply lists can be a special challenge.

Avalon Center depends upon generous community minded citizens all year round for assistance with its programs to help victims of domestic and sexual abuse, both adults and children. Last year, Avalon made 224 youth targeted presentations, mainly in the schools in Avalon’s five county service areas, to about 9,000 individuals, most of them children. Topics for these presentations are age appropriate and include bullying prevention, stranger safety, gender respect and healthy dating behavior.

Your help with school supplies goes hand-in-hand with Avalon’s efforts in working with Cumberland County youth.

You may drop off supplies at the Avalon office at 100 Woodmere Mall, Suite 105 (Mon-Fri 8 A.M. – 4:30 P.M.) or the Second Chance Store in the Crossville Outlet Mall (Mon-Sat 9 A.M. – 4:15 P.M., Sunday 1 P.M. – 6 P.M.). For more information, please call 931-456-0747.

President Obama is fast-tracking this Agenda 21 idea of sharing all of America’s wealth, power, resources and industry with the rest of the world. What does this mean to us as American Citizens?

Come to their meeting and find out how George Soros and his money are on the verge of changing and transforming America  to become part of a global government in which we share everything we have  with the rest of the world thus we will no longer have control over our lives, our property, our businesses or the freedoms we enjoy.

Barns, Berries & Back Roads at FOL event

Do you have a sense of adventure? Do you enjoy curling up with a spellbinding thriller never wanting it to end because it’s that good? If so, you’ll want to join in on Wednesday, October 17,  for a fun-filled day with Friends of the Art Circle Library — their first “spellbinding thriller” of a Mystery Tour.

Travel on board a deluxe motorcoach with snacks and goodies on board and a “Meat-and-Three” lunch to die for!

If they tell you anymore, you’ll probably guess where they are going, and there goes all the fun – right down the drain. What they can tell you, though, is to be comfortable and wear your walking shoes, although you won’t be doing much walking. It’s OK to bring your ballet slippers if you like. Or you can just take your shoes off when the time comes… maybe.

The group will be leaving pretty early in the morning, but we’ll get you back to Crossville no later than 6 to 6:30 P.M.

You’ll want to bring your camera along for this one.

The cost is $69 per person — $5 of which goes back to the “Friends of the Library,”

For reservations and details, please call Elaine Johnston at 931-484-8228.
