SINCLAIRVILLE - Toward the end of January and into February, the Sinclairville 76ers' kitchen will be remodeled with new flooring, cabinets, counters, work stations and appliances. A handicapped lavatory will also be installed off the dining room. Funds for the project were obtained through the help of the Chautauqua County Office for the Aging, led by Director Dr. MaryAnn Spanos.
The Sinclairville 76ers is the Meals on Wheels program for the Cassadaga Valley area. Hot meals are prepared on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the Sinclairville Firehall Kitchen and delivered by volunteers on three different routes. The delivery areas include Cassadaga, Stockton, Sinclairville, Cherry Creek, Conewango Valley, Ellington and Gerry. The meals are kept hot in special hot boxes which connect to the electrical system of each delivery van.
The Sinclairville 76ers began in 1976 with senior housing and five years later expanded to include Meals on Wheels. For more information on the Meals on Wheels program, call 962-3455.
Shown reviewing the final plans are Paul Derkovitz, luncheon site manager; Lisa Rangel, chef; and Richard Smith, president of the Sinclairville 76ers.
