Senior Citizens met

There were 15 members of the Mayer Senior Citizens Club at the monthly get-together on Monday, Jan. 7, for a delicious pot luck dinner. The game of bunco was played after the meal. Our next pot luck will be held at 11:30 on Monday, Feb. 4, at the Mayer Community Center. This date has special meaning for me as it was on Feb. 4, 1974, that I became the leader of the first senior citizens club in Mayer. I held that position for 25 years.
