Enterprise helps keep Senior Outlook going

To the editor:

This is written in response to a recent editorial published in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise titled “Dark clouds hang over Senior Outlook.”

It is true that we work hard at providing information, companionship and activities for our seniors. We are truly blessed that this has been recognized by individuals, groups and businesses, such as the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, in the form of donations of time, help and money. Financial assistance, especially, is always appreciated as we must diligently consider our budget when planning any and all activities.

It is NOT true that the Meals on Wheels program or the senior bus transportation program are being affected by any budget concerns we may have at the Saranac Lake Adult Center. These are financed by the county, and are not currently facing budget cuts.

Publication of our Senior Outlook newspaper will continue, in great part due to the generosity of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. We are deeply grateful that, as in the past, they have promised to help with the layout and printing of our paper.

(Editor’s note: While the Enterprise editorial mentioned Meals on Wheels and bus transportation as examples of programs that have been cut at some senior centers over the years, it did not say these programs were set to be cut at the Saranac Lake Adult Center.)
