Betsy Saltsman read the secretary’s report and Olive Taylor read the treasurer’s report. Both were read, accepted, and filed.

Florence Stanton, acting corresponding secretary, passed get well cards to be signed and sent to two members; and a sympathy card to the family of the late Clara Mitchell.

Delores Dumar gave a report on the May 21 luncheon. Subway will prepare the 6-inch subs, exactly as ordered by each individual at the time of signup. They will supply additional ingredients and condiments for the subs. Also on the menu is macaroni salad, chips, cupcakes, soda and bottled water. The price is $6.

Furman had several loaves of zucchini bread baked and donated by Lindy Lasher, who wanted the money made from the sale to go to the treasury.

A question and answer period followed.

The seniors will be participating in the Fonda-Fultonville Memorial Day parade on May 28. There will be a tractor pulled tram ride so no senior has to walk.
