MAYVILLE - There were 45 members of the Mayville Senior Citizens who met for the annual ham dinner in the Mayville VFW dining hall.
Louise Richer, Dolly Gilbert and Bonnie Johnson made the coffee and arranged all the casseroles and desserts. Mary Carlson called the table numbers after Chaplain Dianne Goodrich asked a blessing for the group and the food.
After the filling meal, President Joyce Ayers called the meeting to order. Goodrich read "Five Jumps a Week" and "My Dog Could be a Congressman" and led the group in a moment of silence for deceased member Aileen Little.
Ayers led the group in the salute to the flag and conducted the short business meeting. Wanda Gustafson was secretary and read the minutes and also reminded those who wishes to take the safe driving course in May to sign up now. Treasurer Edna Brown gave her report.
Goodwill Chair Mary Carlson listed the life member birthdays as Dorothy Akam, Rita Lescynske, Jean Russ, who will be 98, and Barbara Rotte. Others celebrating are Claudia Wittenbrook, Dolly Gilbert, Janet Loomis and Martha Miller. Bob and Judy Smith are celebrating their wedding anniversary. Carlson reported she had sent several cards.
Sandy Anderson and Jean Kelsey reported there are only a few seats left for the Cambridge Springs Dinner Theater to see The Patsy Cline Show. There are also a few seats left for the relaxing trip to Mackinaw Island in the late summer. Call 753-7814 or 753-2663 for more information.
Program Chair Bill Tornstrom announced that the speaker for the Thursday, April 18 meeting will be Chautauqua County Undersheriff Charles Holder who will speak on the New York SAFE Act gun laws. Holder has done much research on the interesting topic.
The person drawn for the lottery was not there, so it grows. Sandy and Emerson Chandler both won a door prize.
Goodrich announced that the Chautauqua County Humane Society will accept bulk clothing for resale at its facility in Lakewood.
The next meeting of the Mayville Senior Citizens will be on Thursday, April 18 at noon in the Mayville VFW. Bring a dish to pass, a personal table service and a good appetite.
