Forty-four members of the Mayville Senior Citizens met in the Mayville VFW for lunch and a meeting. Louise Richir, Dolly Gilbert, Bonnie Johnson, Mary Carlson and Nancy Peters made the coffee and set the tables. Mary Carlson called the table numbers after Chaplain Dianne Goodrich asked a blessing for the food and group.
President Joyce Ayers called the meeting to order. Ms. Goodrich read, "I Didn't Do It," "Puzzle" and "Successful Businessman" and led the group in prayer. Ms. Ayers led the flag salute. Secretary Izetta Ayling read the minutes, and treasurer Edna Brown gave her report. Goodwill chair Mary Carlson announced the September birthday celebrants as life members Janice Barr and Pauline Cole. Others celebrating are: Deanna Bliss, Roger Klossner, Mikki Young, Dianne Goodrich, Bob Hartmann, Elaine Winton, Jim Kurtz, Paul Holthouse, Mike Barnes, Ila Johnson, Ronald Moore and Beverly White. The members celebrating wedding anniversaries are: Ron and Elma Spacht, Paul and Juanita Holthouse, and Gerald and Barbara Thompson.
Trip co-chairs Sandy Anderson and Jean Kelsey announced a fun time was had on the trip to Pigeon Forge. The payment for Vidlers was due at the meeting. The bus to Cambridge Springs is full, so there is a waiting list for that trip.
Ms. Ayers announced that there was a sign-up sheet for the chicken barbecue on Saturday, Sept. 22. The chicken will be prepared by the Men's Auxiliary of the VFW. Members pay half price, and guests pay full price. Attendees need not bring anything but a good appetite for this annual event. Call either 789-2316 or 761-6004 by Sept. 16 for reservations.
The person who was called for the lottery was not here, so it grows. The door prize was a basket of tomatoes donated by Wanda Gustafson, and it was won by Eleanor Cornelius.
Bill Tornstrom introduced James Subjack, former District Attorney, who spoke on the importance of DNA and forensics in today's law enforcement. He also stated how an "eyewitness" can easily be inaccurate. Subjack answered many questions from the group. His yearly visit is always informative and welcome.
