Corning-Elmira Youth Magic Club (C.E.Y.M.C.) was active throughout the 1970s and early 1980s in upstate New York.

The club was sponsored by the Finger Lakes I.B.M. Ring 140 and the Corning Community YMCA. Directed by Gordon Mattice and Joe Willard, meetings are held twice a month. Student members would present their pet effects and the rest of the group offered criticism and suggestions. Equipment used during the meetings included many of the effects built by Fred DeMuth.[1]
