Community Member of the Month

Mary Jane Brown is February’s “Community Member of the Month.” As a life-long resident of Owego, she married and raised her children here. Her family has expanded to include four grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Mary Jane’s first job was as a typist with Stackmore. She then became a secretary at the Owego Apalachin School, and joined Tioga Opportunities, Inc. in 2000. She now serves as one of our front desk receptionists, or as we like to say, our “Director of First Impressions.”

A very creative person, Mary Jane enjoys decorating for the holidays. She likes sewing, knitting, and other crafty projects in her spare time. Mary Jane loves to collect jewelry and can always be found wearing a beautiful broach.

Mary Jane began enjoying meals in the Countryside Café here at Tioga Opportunities, Inc. in 1990. She is a dedicated congregate meal diner, rarely ever missing a day. She finds the staff friendly and cheerful with a readiness to assist with her needs. She shared that it is a friendly atmosphere to meet up with friends to enjoy both a healthy, delicious meal and company.

Mary Jane invites others to experience a meal with family or friends at the Countryside Café at Tioga Opportunities, Inc. (9 Sheldon Guile Blvd, Owego) Monday through Friday, 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Watch for next week's meals in the “Join us for lunch” article here on our website.
