Food for Thought

Happy New Year!  With winter here, and the unpredictable weather it brings, I want to take this opportunity to remind the community about the procedure for weather related closings of the Lunch Club 60 Senior Centers. The decision to close a Lunch Club 60 Center is typically made by 9:00 am, so if the weather is bad, and schools in your area are closed, we urge that you do not head out to the Center you attend until you know for sure that it is open.  If Wayne ARC is closed, the Centers are definitely closed because they make the food we serve.

All closing will be reported on:

 

TV: 13WHAM-TV, Fox Rochester, News 10 NBC, YNN

Radio: AM:  WHAM 1180, Fox Sports 1280 FM:  100.5 The Drive, Kiss 106.7, Sunny 102.3, Radio 95.1, 107.3 The Bull, 92.5 WBEE, 98.9 The Buzz, 96.5 WCMF, 98 PXY, and ESPN Rochester.

Internet: 13WHAM.com

Please keep in mind, that during weather emergencies when there are many closings at once, the News/Radio Stations give priority to schools and daycare centers when reporting closings.  This is beyond our control.

If you are a regular participant, and have signed up for a meal, the Manager of your Center will also do their best to contact you by phone.
