Annual Christmas luncheon on Dec. 4

CAROGA LAKE — The Nick Stoner Seniors meeting was called to order on Tuesday, by Grace Eglin, president with “The Lord’s Prayer,” Pledge of Allegiance and Hello to your Neighbor. A moment of silence was held for Ann Marie Henzel, a member, who recently passed away. She was 98 years old.

The secretary’s report was given by Marion Snell and accepted as read. The treasury report was given by Shirley Holliday and accepted. Jean Griffin gave the hospitality report. The group will have their annual Christmas luncheon on Dec. 4, at the club. Bring a dish to pass around. Instead of a grab bag gift, she asked everyone to bring a non-perishable food for a food box to donate to the North Bush Church food pantry. Martha Mongato, Dottie Richeson and Dottie Blowers will call absent members to invite them. The sunshine report was given by MaryLou Paterson. She sent out four cards this month.

Janice McLaughlin gave the penpal report. The seniors will meet their penpal at the Wheelerville Union Free School on Wednesday, at 12:30 p.m. in the classroom. All are invited to attend.

Jeannine Schwartz reminded everyone there will be a social hour at the meeting hall in January and February for anyone that would like to attend on the same days and time that the club would have had their meetings.

There was a new trip chairman and committee picked for next year, Grace Eglin, Marylou Paterson, Linda Rhinehart and David Nilsen. The group voted to give money to the North Bush Church and Bleecker Community Church.

Sharon Fenstermaker took attendance and sold raffle tickets. There was 23 members and one guest present.

The meeting adjourned at 1:07 p.m. The winners of the raffle were Louise Stock and Jean Griffin. The raffle of the quilt hand made and donated by Nancy Bennett Roberts, niece of Shirley Holliday, was drawn. Dottie Blowers pulled the ticket and Sherry Young of Caroga Lake won.
