"Discover Maple Lake Manor DIning Site"


In behalf of Central MN Council of Aging, Catholic Charities and Maple Manor Board of Directors  we’d like to invite and inform you of a valuable opportunity open to people over 60 and others interested in taking advantage of Maple Lake’s fine Senior Dining facility. We are located at 555 2nd Street W. in Maple Lake where nutritious hot meals are provided. We are open 5 days week, with a soup and sandwich option, and meals to go. (Closed on some holidays.) 
History of the Senior Dining Program.
 In 1965, the Older Americans Act was passed and made funding available to promote the health and well-being of older Americans. Central MN Council of Aging (CMCOA) is the agency in this region of Minnesota who distributes those funds to organizations who are wanting to provide services to seniors in Central Minnesota. Catholic Charities uses this partial funding that is awarded to them by the CMCOA to provide nutritious meals to seniors for that exact purpose. United Way contributions, private donations, and community support also help to fund this senior dining program in Maple Lake.  
Due to the design of the Senior Dining Program, there are two options available to our guests:  Option 1: Meal is provided for a suggested contribution of $7.50-$4.00 for those 60+ years of age. No one is denied a meal based on ability to pay. An annual registration for this federally-funded program must be completed. 
 Option 2: Meal is provided to diners of all ages at full price of $7.50, children under 10 years of age $3.50, no registration form is required. Through your support you are helping to keep this program available to seniors in your community. 
 Lunch starts at 11:45. Weekly menus are published in the Maple Lake Messenger or you can pick one up at the site along with registration forms if interested.  Reservations are encouraged the day before, and necessary for groups of five or more. Periodically entertainment and celebrations are arranged, but keep in mind that adjacent to the dining room there is a comfortable social room where the coffee pot is on for groups who wish to engage in cards, crafts, and their entertainment of choice. We invite you to use it as your Senior Citizens Center. Currently we are seeking bridge players to challenge a retired Maple Lake superintendent and other wanna-be’s. 
Special thank you to our outstanding cooks, volunteers, and faithful Meals on Wheels drivers who are dedicated to this valuable program, and to the United Way, private donors, and community for their generous support in making this fine program affordable for our seniors. Please contact Ginger O’Loughlin, Dining Site Coordinator, if you have any questions or are interested in becoming a registered senior diner. Registration is free.
