Seniors to eat hearty in New Scotland

NEW SCOTLAND — Albany County will support two meal sites for New Scotland seniors.
“We were awarded two congregate meal sites in the Town beginning June 1,” Deb Engel, the town’s senior coordinator, told The Enterprise.

Meals will be offered every Wednesday at the Wyman Osterhout Community Center, formerly a schoolhouse, on Old Salem Road in New Salem, and will be offered every Thursday at St. Matthew’s Social Center on Mountainview Street in Voorheesville.

Anyone 60 years old or older who lives in Albany County is welcome to enjoy lunch prepared and served by LifePath and funded by the Albany County Department of Aging.

If you want to eat on Wednesday or Thursday, call Engel by Monday of that week at 518-439-9038 to reserve a meal.

Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.; doors open at 11 a.m.  A $3 donation is suggested, but not required.

Each meal, in addition to the main course listed in the menu below includes the appropriate starch, vegetable, dessert, and milk.

Masks are required when not seated at a table and actively eating or drinking.



These meals will be served next week:

— On Wednesday, June 1, at the Wyman Center: Barbecued chicken, baked fish, or southwestern chicken; and 

— On Thursday, June 2, at St. Matthews Social Center: Roast pork with raspberry glaze or baked fish.
