NORTH HARMONY - There are creative ways to increase the treasury of a senior citizens group.
Such is the case with the North Harmony Senior Citizens Club. At the last meeting on May 20, Steve Saulsgiver, the club's auctioneer, along with his trusted helpers, sounded out the sale of over 60 items and raised $246, which will be deposited in the driveway fund. It is an interesting observation to view what is considered some people's junk and other people's treasures.
Prior to this event, members were treated to a roast beef on wick and kielbasa dinner with an assortment of different dishes prepared by the members. Chuck and Dorothy Krause, Pat Baker, and Everett King were the hosts. Kathy Silzle provided the birthday cake, which was to be prepared by Eleanor King, who recently broke her leg. All wished her well.
The monthly reports were given by the various chairpersons. Trips to Washington D.C., Conneaut, Ohio and other destinations are occurring as scheduled.
Recognition was given to the winners of the Senior Council Trivia Day held at the club on May 9. Sally Carlson, Earl Ferry and Steve Saulsgiver were awarded first prize winnings of $100, which was placed in the driveway savings account.
President Ferry reminded the members to submit the club questionnaire form soon. This will provide the membership with knowledge of other member's interest and backgrounds.
The next meeting will be held on June 17. Steve and Loretta Saulsgiver, Carol Davenport and Pat Baker will be the hosts. Joyce Warner will provide the cake.
