A public reception attended by more than 50 guests was held Saturday at the new location of the Community Pantry on Route 28, Arkville.
The new facility provides significantly more space than was available at the pantry’s Margaretville location and will make it possible for services to be expanded.
The Rev. Richard Dykstra, secretary/treasurer of the Interfaith Council of Greater Margaretville, conducted the ribbon cutting at Saturday’s opening. The council serves as the umbrella organization for the Community Pantry.
