Brocton-Portland Seniors ready for Sept. 27 meeting
BROCTON — On Aug. 30, 33 members of the Brocton-Portland seniors met at the John Dill American Legion Post.
Jean Jaquith, Vice President, opened the meeting. Laurel Giambra led the Pledge of Allegiance, and Tom DeJoe said the prayer. A guest, Douglas Chantel, joined the club for his first visit.
The program for this meeting was bingo, DeJoe did a wonderful job, calling the numbers and everyone enjoyed the anticipation of getting a “BINGO”, and the privilege of choosing a prize from the donated gifts on the prize table. The committee for this month was Olive Becker, Jaquith, DeJoe, Shirley Wolnik, Rosie and Laurel Giambra. Rita Bennett helped out. This month was also “The birthday” month. Tables were decorated with wonderful honeycomb birthday decorations, and dishes of yummy candy. It was a Tureen month. Everyone brought a delicious dish to pass.
The committee bought a wonderful arrangement of cupcakes, that represented a tasty birthday cake. The icing was so light and fluffy. Birthdays for the month of August were: Dorothy Derby, DeJoe, Sue Schrantz, Debbie Messere. A “Thinking of You” card was sent out to Bob Jagoda, and birthday cards were given out to those having birthdays this month.
A thank you letter was received from the Brocton-Portland Ministerial Food Pantry thanking the seniors for a money donation. Also received was a thank you card for the group’s generous donation to the “Feed the Children, Seniors Mission.” The next meeting will be catered on Sept. 27.
