BATH — Older people in the Cohocton area are taking part in a pilot program aimed at achieving the goals of healthy living and socialization -- critical keys to aging well.

The Steuben County Office for the Aging, in partnership with ProAction of Steuben and Yates and local residents, hosted a new Senior Dinner Club site on Aug. 16 in Cohocton. The site was recently visited by state Assemblyman Joseph Errigo, R-Consesus, who presented the group with a proclamation.

County Office for the Aging Director Patty Baroody said organizers would like to see the new dinner club in Cohocton become a regular focal point for lunch.

“We need to know there is enough interest and participation to keep it open,” Baroody said. “We need to know the community needs.”

The next luncheon is set for noon, Sept 20. at the First Presbyterian Church, 54 Maple Ave., Cohocton, and reservations are required by calling 607-776-4310.
