Election set for Nick Stoner seniors

CAROGA LAKE — The Nick Stoner Senior Citizens Club meeting on Oct. 3, was called to order by Grace Eglin, president, who has been absent due to knee surgery. Eglin led in “The Lord’s Prayer,” the Pledge of Allegiance, and Hello to Your Neighbor.

Dottie Blowers took attendance and sold raffle tickets. There were 29 members and one guest present.

Marion Snell gave the secretary’s report and Shirley Holliday gave the treasury report; both were accepted.

Jean Griffin gave the hospitality report.

At noon Tuesday the club’s anniversary luncheon will be at Vrooman’s Hotel.

On Nov. 3, Election Day, the meeting room will be the voting room.

At noon Nov. 21, the covered dish harvest luncheon will be in the meeting room at Town Hall. Griffin sent a signup sheet around for members to list what they want to bring.

Janice McLaughlin gave the pen pal report. There are 11 students in fifth grade at Wheelerville Union Free School this year. Some members have received letters from their pen pals. McLaughlin will be in touch with their teacher to find out when the seniors can meet their pen pals at the school.

Eglin gave the trip report. Dec. 5, is the trip to the Log Cabin country western Christmas show. The cost is $40 for members; and $50 for non-members. The bus will leave Johnstown McDonald’s at 8:30 a.m. and Caroga Town Hall at 9 a.m.

In old business, Mary Lou Paterson will deliver the dictionaries to the third grade at WUFS. Eglin noted that they don’t have to buy dictionaries this year, as reported at last meeting; there is enough left from last year.

Eglin noted that due to low membership in some of the senior clubs, the clubs help each other out by including them in trips to help fill the bus and luncheons. She suggested the Mayfield Bannertown Club and the Lassellsville seniors.

The meeting adjourned.

The 50-25-25 raffle followed the meeting. The winners were John Schwartz and Jerry Gessinger. The refreshments were served and bingo was played with Eglin calling the numbers.
