The Chautauqua Lake Central School Manufacturers Club was the recipient of the Community Service Award presented by the Mayville/Chautauqua Community Chamber of Commerce at their annual banquet and meeting held at Andriaccio’s Restaurant in Mayville on Nov. 16. They were recognized for their efforts in creating a unique partnership with community volunteers from local industry to create a hands on learning experience for the students. Organized by community volunteers Jay Baker, school board president and owner of Jamestown Plastics, and Randy Stuart, former owner of Stuart Tool and Die, the Club began as a mid-day extracurricular experience. The Club has since expanded to enhance the school curriculum as well. The Manufacturers Club instills in the students what a manufacturing career can offer. Chamber President Sally Andriaccio presented the award to co-founder Jay Baker, who accepted on behalf of the Manufacturers Club.
