There may be some changes coming down the pike for the local Meals on Wheels program for seniors.  Program Coordinator Deana Sheriff says she’s been meeting with seniors and program participants and gathering their input on how to keep the meals rolling in spite of budgetary cutbacks.  Sheriff says she is weighing out several options now that will save the program money but allow the meals to still be delivered to area seniors, many of whom have mobility and transportation issues and rely on the program for what is often their only hot meal of the day.
