GENEVA — The Geneva Senior Citizens met May 30 at the Community Center on Carter Road.

Twenty-four seniors attended Gentle Yoga classes, sponsored by the Ontario County Office of the Aging. Certified instructor Margaret Newland will lead the classes for eight weeks from 10:30 to 11:30 Thursday mornings, except July 4.

After yoga, members brought their own lunches since the kitchen crew was in the gym. They did provide some snacks and made coffee.

Community Center and Boys and Girls Club’s Executive Director Chris Lavin spoke to the group. He shared information about the Club’s programs and how many children his organization helps feed. They help so many kids.

Donations are welcome to support the meal program.

For the memorial service, the recording secretary read a paragraph written for a member of the group who went to be with the Lord on Jan. 2. Barbara Guererri Schumann was a joy to be with. She was a lifelong resident of Geneva and a Head Start teacher’s aide for 30 years. She was survived by six children, plus a daughter-in-law and many grandchildren and great-grandchilden. She was predeceased by her husband, Willi Schumann. Her smile has been missed. President Ginny Shoemaker then lit a candle and members observed a moment of silence to remember her.

Group members have begun planting the garden. Mary Lou Dumbleton will water the garden.

Dot Archer will be sent a card to let her know she is missed.

The 50/50 was won by Lyn Golumbeck and Phyl.

Several people stayed to play euchre after the meeting.
