Proffitt, along with his wife Helen and Frank and Shelley Kuennen, had been planning to secretly supply the Solon Community Food Pantry with about 60 chickens for Christmas.

Council picks up tab for diner

Old Gold Diner seeks support for going local

By Doug Lindner
Solon Economist

SOLON– Art Tellin said it best.
Representatives for Solon senior citizens were present at last week’s city council meeting to discuss the city’s ongoing support of the Old Gold Diner after the senior dining site’s decision to split from provider Elder Services, Inc.
“I don’t want you to think this was a rash decision, that we just pulled away from the government funding, because we lost it anyway,” Tellin said. “We’ve got to keep this center going.”
And the city stepped up to the plate with a $6,000 contribution.
