Northern Chautauqua County Club Association meets in Silver Creek

The Northern Chautauqua County Club Association recently held its regular monthly meeting at the Silver Creek Overseas Veterans, N. Main Street in Silver Creek. It was the last meeting before the summer break.

The meeting was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a moment of silence for all deceased club members. Jim Lisa of the Post gave the welcome speech.

Roll call of officers and clubs was taken, followed by the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting by Secretary Jim Pryll. Treasurer Janis Dibb followed with the treasurer’s report.

Guests included former Fredonia Mayor Charlie St. George. Silver Creek Mayor Nick Piccolo spoke about the recent flooding in the village. He mentioned how proud he was of the crews involved in the quick cleanup of the area. Besides the water and mud, large logs and even pieces of ice had to be removed. He received timely phone calls from Senators Tom Reed and Kathy Young offering help. The mayor felt fortunate that his village fared better than Gowanda and Randolph.

Member clubs talked about their upcoming events, and discussed the possibility of changing the meeting schedule of the Association.

The group donated to the Great Lakes Experience Festival to be held at Memorial Park on Saturday, June 21. Association President Joe Rozen spoke about attending last year’s festival, and what a great time it was. He mentioned various displays, and how interesting they were for both children and adults.

Tickets were purchased for a raffle to be held at a benefit for Kurt Wolnik, which were given away at the meeting.

The next meeting of the Association will be held the last Sunday in September. Clubs will be notified of the time and location.
