Club Associates hears from


FORESTVILLE — The Northern Chautauqua County Club Associates recently met at the J. Carter Knapp Post in Forestville. Post Commander, Tom Halicki, welcomed the group. The meeting was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a moment of silence for all deceased club members.

Secretary Jim Pryll read the minutes of the last meeting, followed by a treasurer’s report from Halicki.

Guest speaker was Mr. Lou Pelleter, Silver Creek historian and Hanover town supervisor. He spoke of the history of Lake Shore hospital, and other local health facilities, and the diseases and pandemics that affected them, especially through the Civil War, World War I, and beyond.

A donation was made to the 11 Day Power Play, in support of Shane Boyle. It was discussed to circulate petitions at Clubs to oppose the building of wind generators in Lake Erie.

Letters were distributed to clubs for Julie Rozen, a former Dunkirk resident now living in Pittsburgh, who will go to Poland this summer in a program to teach English to Polish and Ukrainian children. She is seeking items from clubs to give to her students.

The next meeting of the Associates will be May 19 at the Brocton Legion Post 434. Any club member is invited to attend.

Clerks week

begins Sunday

Although it is one of the oldest local government positions, few people realize the vital services municipal and deputy clerks perform for their community. The functions of the clerk necessitate a thorough knowledge of law procedure, administration and interpersonal relations. They serve as a professional link between the citizens, the local governing bodies and agencies of government at other levels. The first full week in May — Sunday to May 11 — honors Municipal and Deputy Clerks for continually striving to improve the administration of their duties through participation in educational programs, seminars, workshops, and meetings of their state, province, county and international professional organizations. The Chautauqua County Municipal Clerks Association would like to thank all Municipal and Deputy Clerks for their dedication to their positions and community.
