On August 8, County Executive Joe Parisi joined area seniors at the grand opening of EMMCA’s new breakfast program, My Meal My Way. Mr. Parisi sipped coffee, ate organic food and enjoyed mingling with seniors, some of whom came with friends or family who ordered off the regular Cranberry Creek menu. Thank you to all who came out and made our newest meal site a success!
