SINCLAIRVILLE - The monthly luncheon and meeting of the Sinclairville Senior Citizens was held recently in the Sinclairville Firehall dining room. President Elaine Palmer-Titus welcomed all with some humorous stories, and then led the group in a blessing remembering those people standing in need and those who were unable to be there at the luncheon. The meal was a catered turkey dinner with all of the fixings provided by the Sinclairville Superette of Eric Spinler and his staff. Many of the members brought a variety of snack foods for all to enjoy. Thanks was extended to Diman Smith for his time in getting many of the dining room items out, and preparing for the dinner. Table decorations were provided by Norvale Martin-Gane and Sis Morley.
Titus conducted the election of officers for the year 2013. Using the election process of protocol, Titus read nominations, asked for any additions from the floor, and then conducted the election for each officer. Elected for president was Marge McIntyre, for vice president was Linda Parmenter, for secretary was Bill Wittenbrook and for treasurer was Claudia Wittenbrook. In his lengthy acceptance speech, Wittenbrook expressed the importance of everyone to take their turn in helping in an organization. Betty Wielgasz was re-elected to serve as the Sunshine chairman.
Drawings were conducted by Wittenbrook. Recipients included Titus, McIntyre, John Sipos, Norvale Martin-Gane, Peggy Hekins, Marian Culver, Tommy Alford, Irene Moll and Nellie Sharp. November birthdays were recognized and the birthday song was sung to Diman Smith and Jane Penhollow.
At the business meeting, Titus led all in the Lord's Prayer, and secretary Sipos led all in the Pledge of Allegiance after a brief history lesson on the Pledge of Allegiance. Sipos read the minutes of the previous meeting, some thank you notes, and a report of upcoming events. Claudia Wittenbrook gave the financial report. Susan Sipos gave a report of the new Cassadaga Library Cookbook which she is currently typing, and will be ready for sale in the spring of 2013. The new cookbook will include a history of the library association, the original 1950 cookbook, the recipes from the cookbook printed 10 years ago, and new recipes.
The next meeting of the group will be on the first Tuesday in December promptly at noon. The meal will be a catered scalloped potato and ham dinner by the Sinclairville Superette. Table decorations will be provided by Titus and Parmenter. John and Susan Sipos will purchase a Christmas gift for all. New members are always welcome.
