SINCLAIRVILLE - The Sinclairville 76ers recently held its summer picnic in the Sinclairville ballpark, which was attended by many of the volunteers and those who participate in the program. Karl Kelling, vice president of the organization, served as the chef for the picnic.
The Sinclairville 76ers is the Meals on Wheels program for the Cassadaga Valley area. It is a part of the Chautauqua County Office for the Aging, and supported by surrounding towns and villages. Meals are prepared in the Sinclairville fire hall kitchen and delivered on three different routes in three vans by volunteers, three days a week. Meals are also served at the Sinclairville fire hall dining room on the same days of the week at noon. The delivery routes include Cherry Creek, Conewango Valley, Ellington, Sinclairville, Cassadaga, Lily Dale, and Stockton. The program began in 1976 to organize senior housing, continued with the meals on wheels program, and was so named the 76ers.
