Westfield Seniors Convene

WESTFIELD — The Westfield Senior Citizens will meet at 6 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Westfield YWCA. Those attending are asked to bring a dish to pass and their own table service.

The group met recently with 27 members present. Pat Sciarrino, president, opened with a prayer. Shirley Kolpien narrated a funny story using Hoyt and Elaine Prince’s names. She then did a reading of “If My Body Were A Car.”

After recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, Sciarrino read about vacations and the need to include relaxation and renewal in members’ lives.

The secretary’s report was read and accepted with a correction. Pat Everts, treasurer, gave her report which included a memorial to the Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue for Don Clancy and payment to Pat Cook for her program in July. Both were approved by members.

Delores Kaufman, sunshine chairman, gave a list of birthdays for August: Nancy Peters, Sylvia Colbey and Geri Harper. A sympathy card was sent to the wife of the North East Banjo Band’s leader.

Ann and Dave Cochran were congratulated on their 60th wedding anniversary.

Sciarrino discontinued the auction of items brought by members. A silent auction of six tickets for $5 has been suggested.

The kitchen committee for September’s meeting will be Joyce Wainwright, Jean Young and Ann and Dave Cochran. Set-up for the meeting will be at 5:15 p.m. Entertainment for September will be by the Wolett Girls.

Sciarrino closed the meeting with a prayer. Entertainment was provided by Emma Bishop’s Centerstage Dance.
