Forty members of the Mayville Senior Citizens met on Jan. 19 in the Mayville VFW for lunch and entertainment. The tables were set by Louise Richir, Dolly Gilbert, Mary Carlson, Bonnie Johnson and Nancy Peters. Mary Carlson called the tables after Joyce Ayers, president, greeted the group and Dianne Goodrich, chaplain, asked a blessing for the food.
The seniors enjoyed a large variety of casseroles and desserts.
After the meal, the chaplain read two cute stories and ''Keep in Touch'' and led the group in prayer.
Bill Tornstrom, program chair, introduced Pat Cook, who sang oldie-goldies. Ms. Cook sang songs from the past that were very familiar to the group. She also ''played'' the violin, a small replica of the real thing, convincing the group she could play it until she had one of the seniors try it. She left the group with a message: ''Don't think you can't do something until you try it. Just do it.''
Ms. Ayers led the flag salute and conducted the short business meeting. Izetta Ayling, secretary, and Edna Brown, treasurer, gave their reports, as did Mary Carlson, sunshine chair.
Sandy Anderson and Jean Kelsey, trip co-chairs, listed the trips planned for the year: Feb. 21, Seneca Casino; March 27, an overnight trip to Lancaster to see ''Jonah;'' June 12, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland; July 16, Presque Isle; August, Pigeon Forge, Tenn.; September, Vidler's 5 & 10 and Made in the U.S.A. store. The last trip of the year will be on Nov. 27 to Cambridge Springs Dinner Theater. Anyone is able to go with the seniors to any of the trips. Call Sandy or Jean for more information.
Guest Joy Kurtz was made welcome. No one won the lottery. Sandy Chandler donated the door prizes won by Izetta Ayling, Louise Richir and Rita Lescynski.
The next meeting of the Mayville Senior Citizens will be on Thursday in the Mayville VFW. Attendees should bring a dish to pass and their own table service. Lt. David Bentley of the Chautauqua County Drug Task Force will speak.
