Countryside Adult Home staff member Brandy French serves coffee Tuesday May 1 to Countryside resident Michael Connor. The adult home will soon be hosting the patrons of the Warrensburg senior mealsite, now that the state Health Department is poised to approve the relocation of the luncheon program to Countryside.
