Make new friends, and keep the old

Familiar face returns to put new shine on Solon’s Old Gold Dining

By Lori Lindner
Solon Economist

SOLON– Ely resident Duane McAtee has served people much of his life.
Therefore, it’s not a big surprise that he has returned to Solon’s senior dining program as site manager; but to most, it is a blessing.
Solon’s Old Gold Dining program has been offering meals to the area’s senior residents for 33 years. Today, people aged 60 and up can get a hot meal for the price of a free-will donation, five days a week. The meals are served at Solon United Methodist Church fellowship hall, or delivered to homebound residents upon request.
