Adult center under consideration
SARANAC LAKE — A group of interested persons including a representative number of Senior Citizens met last week to discuss the feasibility of starting an Adult Day Center.
Envisioned is a building with at least three large activity rooms, a kitchen, and rest room facilities. It should be large enough to accommodate the nutrition program, and it could offer daily activities, meals, lectures and a place "to call their own" for Senior Citizens.
Anyone who knows of a possible location, for sale or rent; or of a bus or van which could be used for transportation, or anyone who has an idea, a donation or time to offer should get in touch with Beckie O'Neill at 891-4141, Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
