Tuesday Club will hold Reciprocity Day Salad Lunch May 2

The Mayville Tuesday Club will celebrate Reciprocity Day with a salad luncheon at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2 in the Mayville Library's Tourgee Room.

After a delicious lunch and short meeting, the Harmony Gals Quartet, part of the Chautauqua Shores Chorus, will sing songs that will make the fingers and toes move along with the music.

Special guest for the day will be Linda Momberger, WNYFWC president. Club members, each of whom will bring a salad or dessert for the luncheon, may bring guests. Also welcome will be members of the WNYFWC. This will be a great time for women who are considering Tuesday Club membership to meet club members.

Many club members are still thinking of the April 4 guest who was introduced by Dianne Goodrich, club president, Vince Martonis from Silver Creek in the Town of Hanover who showed several different historical Chautauqua County Curiosities. Two of the greatest trees ever found grown were in New York on Hanover Road, he said.

In addition to all of the ancient trees that can be found in Hanover, a most unusual find is Amos Sottle's Horse-Skull Fiddle. Sottle, a resident of Irving and Chautauqua County's first settler, made this unique fiddle in the early 1800s from his horse's skull. The coffin-shaped case and bone bow complete this rare example of folk art.

More than a day can be spent in the Hanover Historical part of eastern New York, not far from Mayville. "There is no other town in any other county in New York state which can lay claim to as many famous and historic trees as Hanover," so declared Vince Martonis.
