CLEAR SPRING -- County and state officials joined about 50 area seniors Tuesday at a ceremony to celebrate the opening of a new site for meals and activities for senior citizens at the Clear Spring Volunteer Fire Dept. special events building.
The new site, at 12323 Big Spring Road, serves hot lunches and offers daily activities from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for anyone 60 and older, said Hannah S. Cramer, deputy director of the Washington County Commission on Aging.
The site will also allow the Commission on Aging to extend its Meals on Wheels program to the Clear Spring area, Cramer said. Meals on Wheels is a service that delivers hot, nutritious meals to medically homebound individuals.
The new Clear Spring site is the county's eighth senior nutrition site, Cramer said. Other sites are in Williamsport, Smithsburg, Keedysville, Hancock, and at Francis Murphy Apartments, Walnut Towers and Potomac Towers in Hagerstown.
