Northern Chautauqua County Club Association

The Northern Chautauqua County Club Association recently held its regular monthly meeting at the Fredonia Beaver Club, 64 Prospect St. in Fredonia.

A welcome speech was given by Lou Sinare of the club.

The meeting was opened with the pledge of allegiance, followed by a moment of silence for the deceased members of their clubs.

Roll call of association officers and member clubs was taken.

Minutes of the February meeting were read by Secretary Janet Rozen and the financial report was given by Treasurer Janis Dibb. Motions for both reports were made, seconded and approved.

Guests include former Mayors Richard Frey of Dunkirk, and Charles St. George of Fredonia.

In the president’s report, clubs were reminded to check IDs before selling alcohol or cigarettes to guests members may bring in.

Guest speaker was Town of Pomfret Judge Anthony Pulci. A policeman for 20 years, and retired for 16 years, Judge Pulci was elected in 2010. He is one of the 1300 town and village judges in New York that handle two million cases a year involving small claims, misdemeanors, drug cases and DWI. He spoke extensively on the legal system, and answered questions posed by the assembly. He spoke of legal changes, like guns now have to be taken away from suspects, rather than be up to the judge’s discretion.

The next meeting will be held at the J. Carter Knapp Post 953 in Forestville, April 28, at 10:30 a.m. All club members are invited to attend.
