MAYVILLE - Thirty-one members of the Mayville Senior Citizens enjoyed lunch recently at the Mayville VFW. Tables were set by Louise Richer, Dolly Gilbert and Bonnie Johnson. Chaplain Dianne Goodrich asked a blessing for the meal and the group before the meal and gave several readings and devotions after the meal. A moment of silence was held in memory of Millie Wassink and Barb Biekert who recently died.
President Joyce Ayers led the group in the flag salute and conducted the short business meeting. Secretary Izetta Ayling read the minutes and correspondences, and treasurer Edna Brown gave her report. Dorothy Akam was introduced as a new member.
Trip co-chair Jean Kelsey stated there could be no more reservations accepted for the trip on March 12 to the Niagara Casino, but there are seats available for all the other trips. On May 31, the seniors will be going to Cambridge Springs to The Patsy Cline Show and dinner. On July 17, the seniors will travel to The Hidden Valley Animal Adventure. In September the seniors will go to Mackinaw Island and surrounding areas, and on Oct.7 a trip to the Ohio Amish country will take place. Call Sandy at 753-7814 or Jean at 753-2663 for more information and to reserve a seat on the bus.
Ayers introduced program chair Bill Tornstrom who in turn introduced Mickie, owner of HiretheHelp.com. She puts people who need big or little, usual or unusual jobs done in touch with those who can do those jobs. All of her workers are thoroughly screened.
There is no job too big, too small or too dirty; she said she will find someone to do it as long as it is an honest request.
Marsha Lindbergh won the door prize. There was no lottery winner.
