The Monday Club enjoyed their Annual Spring Tea on May 2nd, with full attendance and many prospective members present. The Genesee Valley Chorus entertained with a program of patriotic music, led by Director Norma Bartlett. Singers wore patriotic colors, and were pleased to be performing after a two year pause due to Covid.

Delicious cookies, candies, nuts and treats were enjoyed along with tea served by Mary Huntington and Joyce Loughlin, as the group visited following the entertainment.

At the final April 25th meeting Lois Miller presented an interesting, informative program on coin artifacts, far removed from traditional “coin” collecting. Her extensive collection went back into Traditional Currency, which could include arrowheads, Cassowary bird feathers, a canoe, Cowry shells, tobacco sticks, canine teeth, and other objects. Currency was any object that had value for the people using it for trade or purchase. Lois passed around mounted collections of some of her many examples, and answered questions about her materials. She started with coins, then paper currency, eventually adding these most unusual pieces from New Guinea, China, Siam, and African examples.

Next Monday, Leslie Christman will present a program on ACCORD Corporation.
