GLEN - The Glen-Mohawk Seniors held their weekly meeting at the Fonda Reformed Church with Charlene Pollock presiding in the absence of the president.

The meeting was opened with prayer by Carolyn Whipple, chaplain, followed by singing "America the Beautiful" accompanied by Barb Furman.

The roll call was read with 61 members and four guests in attendance.

The members who have been absent were welcomed back by Pollock.

Betty Pranys, secretary, and Linda Gray, treasurer, gave their reports.

Addie Forsey, sunshine chairwoman, sent cards around for sick and infirm members to be signed by those present.

Tables nine will be hosting the September social, which will be in the form of a luncheon with food from Kentucky Fried Chicken. Signups are being taken. It will be a three piece meal. The birthdays and anniversaries will be celebrated at this time.

The Office for Aging report was given by Furman. Those who want tickets for the senior picnic at the fairgrounds were asked to let her know. The sheriff's department is still looking for cell phones that will be reprogrammed for the 911 number for seniors. The next OFA meeting will be held Sept. 14, at the correctional facility. All seniors in Montgomery County are encouraged to attend these meetings. A lot of information is gathered from them, a news release said.

Ron Collins gave the financial report of the trip account. Betsy Saltsman gave a report on the mystery trip last Tuesday to 1000 Acres, Schroon Lake, Essex County. Some of the members let a horse eat a tidbit from their mouth and some received a kiss on the cheek from the horse. The members participated in a hayride and some got to "drive" the horses. Lu Wilmot, trip chairwoman, announced there will be pizza for those not going on the Lancaster, Pa., trip in September.

The club will be having a white elephant sale Sept. 27.

The thank-you notes for cards and pen-pal gifts were given.

The 50/25/25 raffle was won by Lucille Douglass and Dick Collins. Other winners were Anna Suits, Betsy Saltsman and Betsy Marshall.

The meeting was adjourned. A thought for the day and the closing prayer were given by Whipple.

A lunch of subs and ice cream followed the meeting with bingo being called by Peg LaBarge.
