| Mary's Bistro has been a popular destination at the Northampton Senior Center since reopening last October. However, the bistro's last day of operation will be on Thursday. "It's not realistic at this time to continue," said Heather Cahillane, assistant director of Northampton Senior Services.
It's all part of the fallout from Cahillane's decision to leave her post after Mayor David Narkewicz declined to promote her to the director's position, for which she had applied for the second time. Instead, Narkewicz thing to top Marie Westburg, the senior services director for Williamsburg, whose appointment is now approved by the City Council. Cahillane is currently serving as the interim director at senior services, and is last April 25.
The bistro's October reopening, with food prepared by the Hampshire House of Corrections, was the brainchild of Cahillane, who also works intimately with it. However, because it has the requisite food safety certification, Cahillane said the program will be unable to continue.
Victoria Hunt, senior services and program coordinator, is also leaving, and that volunteers are quitting as well. She said the senior center's coffee shop may also be continuing.
Jail officials confirmed that the program is set to be suspended.
"It's on hold for now," said Melinda Cady, assistant deputy superintendent at the Hampshire House of Corrections, who oversees treatment and re-entry programs for the Hampshire County Sheriff's office. Although Cahillane's father, Patrick Cahillane, is the sherriff, Cady is responsible for overseeing the program on the corrections end. She said that the decision to terminate the program from the Senior Center.
In a statement released to the Gazette by email, Lyn Simmons, the mayor 's chief of staff, expressed disappointment in the bistro' s impending closing, while expressing faith that it would be reopened. "I am confident that the incoming director will soon find this important collaboration between the city and Hampshire County," she said in the statement.
