Sheridan Happy Seniors hold final meeting

On Friday, Aug. 13, the “Sheridan Happy Seniors” gathered for the last time singing the “Happy Seniors Song.” President Eleanor Lemiszko opened the meeting with the Pledge to the Flag and everyone singing God Bless America. Chaplin and Activities Director Pauline Flitt offered a blessing for the food about to be eaten and the final meeting.

There was plenty of food for everyone. Earl Sheeler roasted hot dogs on the grill. Ruth Sheeler prepared corn on the cob. Everyone commented on how delicious the corn was , saying it was the best corn they had of the season. The corn was donated by Richard Feinen Farms located on the corner of Rts 20 & 39 in Sheridan. Through the years there have been many times that Richard Feinen Farms have donated to the seniors. Everyone truly appreciates all the generosity. There was plenty of corn so everyone was given some to take home with them. Cake and ice cream was also enjoyed.

To celebrate the day, everyone received a thank you card for acknowledging their loyalty to the club. Each card also contained a scratch off ticket. This was prepared by Pauline who always brings a lot of laughter to the meetings.

There were two Riles & Woolley drawings. Mary Ann Seibert and Ed Newman were the lucky ones. Extra 50/50 drawings were won by Arlene Miller, Rose Cerrie, Joan Suski, Angie Logan and Janice Snyder. The extra wheel spins made it possible for everyone to win but the big winners were Ed and Angie both winning three times.

Pauline called Bingo. The lucky winners were: Ruth, Betty Kazora, Janice, Earl, Rose, Jan Polisoto, Joan and the final big winner was Mary Ann.

Members were welcomed to join and attend the Silver Creek Seniors meetings on Tuesdays at 1 p.m.

The closing of the meeting was by Chaplin Pauline reading a verse called “A New Chapter “ which was fitting for the final meeting. Meeting adjourned!
