will supplement the current meal program at the Oak Park Community
Center," she said. "It will also create an opportunity to more appropriately
serve a segment of the elderly Jewish community in settings which offer
the option of individual choice."
The Area Agency on Aging 1-B, under the direction of Sandra Re-
rninga, is charged with the responsibility of allocating Federal monies
received from the Older Americans Act; and State appropriated funds
