WELLS - The Wells Seniors updated news. In April the seniors had an ice cream social at the Hope Diner and played bingo.
In May: Sharon Grisenthwaite was honored as Contributing Senior and Dolores Margies was named Senior of the Year for Hamilton County at a banquet held at The Fort William Henry Hotel, Lake George, Warren County. Wells Town Supervisor Brian Towers presented the awards. There were 59 relatives and friends who attended the event. Several from the town were transported to this event by the Sacandaga Task Force bus. A day trip, "the lunch around," was held, which was organized by the group's trip committee. Many members took the trip. For the May social, the seniors were entertained by the music of Mike Boslet.
