ill happen April 17

FONDA — The Glen-Mohawk Seniors had a social hour with refreshments on April 3 prior to the meeting that was called to order by President Alan Buck at 10:30 a.m. Allan Taylor gave the opening prayer. Barbara Furman accompanied by piano while “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” was sung.

Furman, vice president, introduced Mike Sprague, from the Bureau of Consumer Fraud, who discussed the different kinds of scams which was followed by a question and answer period. Two points Sprague made: It is much safer to use a debit card rather than a credit card because there are more protections; and he emphasized keeping Social Security numbers safe. He handed out two publications from the Office of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, Bureau of Consumer Fraud.

The roll call was taken by Furman with 26 present. Joseph Sullivan was welcomed as a new member.

Louise Boyer made a motion to accept the secretary’s report with one correction and Jim Douglass seconded it. The motion passed.

Olive Taylor, treasurer, gave the treasurer’s report which was saved for audit.

Sunshine: Florence Stanton announced:

∫ The HealthLink calendar arrived.

∫ A letter from the Frothingham Free Library gave upcoming events and Stanton will announce closer to the dates.

∫ April is the month the group takes a collection for the Frothingham Free Library and the money collected the day of the meeting will be sent to them by the treasurer.

Stanton had several cards going out for illnesses, birthdays, and springtime greetings.

Lu Wilmont announced a Glen-Mohawk trip for April was canceled due to the weather last month. She asked how many would like to go to see the production of “Jesus” at the Sight and Sound Theatre, Lancaster, Pa. It would be a two night trip. There was a discussion about previous trip experiences and interest was shown about going again. The trip will probably be in September.

Peggy LaBarge said there are 27 who have signed up for the lasagna luncheon on April 17. They have decided that they will omit the Easter bonnet contest this year, but Alan Buck will lead with the left-center-right game.

Wilmot had a story about the tooth fairy. Joe Mancini read a story about the drunken Murphy twins at the pub.

Pat Putman, assisted by Furman, held the prize drawings. The winners were Pat Collins and Martha Hensel. The additional prizes went to Boyer, Ruth Burke, and Wilmot.

The meeting adjourned. Allan Taylor gave the closing prayer followed by the Mizpah. Bingo followed the meeting with numbers being called by Lois Collins and LaBarge.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday at the Fonda Reformed Church. A social hour will precede the meeting which begins at 10:30 a.m. The guest speaker will be Peter Tautznick. All seniors are welcome.
