April 26 was the last day that Harcatus was in charge of the kitchen/dining room at the Newcomerstown Senior Center.

While they were in the "transition" mode, they had the lunch meal catered in from various places in Newcomerstown.

But since then, they have been doing it themselves.

They have hired a new cook which started May 7. Her name is Heather Berndt.

They are inviting the community to come to the center and enjoy lunch. Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. There is also a new telephone number to reach the kitchen. The number is 498-7128.

If you are 60 years of age and older, the suggested donation for lunch is $2. If you are under 60 years of age, the suggested donation for lunch is $5.50.

They suggest that you call a day ahead of time to make a reservation or no later than 9:30 a.m. the day you wish to eat lunch at the center.

They are also planning some exciting events for the summer and have a planned calendar of events available at the center.
