Wells Senior Citizens Club
At its February business meeting the Wells Senior Citizens Club was captivated by Mark Duryea's account of three hunting trips he made to Africa. He shared pictures and stories both humorous and scary about these trips.
Also at that meeting, Wells Central School Superintendent Thomas Sincavage updated the group about the school's finances and upcoming ballet issues in May.
At the February social meeting club members were entertained by Michelle Derwin, who played guitar and sang folk and ballad songs.
The March business meeting was cancelled due to snowy weather, but members had a chance to eat lunch at the meal site and play Bingo at our social meeting March 26. Christine Lancaster was the big winner.
The Wells Senior Trip Committee has events planned for spring, summer, and fall. They include:
-- June 3-5 Gettysburg battlefield tour plus the Sight and Sound Theater at Lancaster, Pa., to see a performance of "Moses;"
