SOLON– The Solon Senior Advocates and the Old Gold Diner Site Council joined together to request funds to support a salary for a new site council manager and were rewarded Tuesday, May 9. The Beef Days Committee and the Solon Area Community Foundation each provided a check for $3,000, providing one half a year’s site manager salary. The City of Solon meets the other half of the yearly salary, plus provides reimbursement for the in-home meal delivery program. The Site Council is searching for a new site manager as Duane McAtee has announced his retirement. The site manager’s duties cover three to four hours daily Monday through Friday and involves assembling the daily carry-out meals and serving those who choose to dine on-site. Inquiries may be made to 319-624-3686 or 319-331-3412.
