Schroon seniors change bylaws

SCHROON LAKE - The Schroon Lake Senior Citizens Club has amended its bylaws in an attempt to attract more members.

At the July general meeting, the club changed the Club's by-laws, opening full membership to people who are age 55 or older.

Previously, full membership was limited to people age 65 or older, although people 55-64 could join and not vote or hold office.

"With about 170 members, the club possesses great vitality, offering a long list of services and events," said Ellie Searles of the club.

"To broaden the base, full membership requires that a person only needs to be 55, rather than 65, as a result of this change," she added. "Previously, members who were at least 55 could not vote or hold office until they reached the age of 65. That limitation has now been removed."

The Schroon Lake Senior Citizens Club meets at its building on Main Street, a few doors north of the Strand Movie Theater. For more information, call 532-7755.
