A prominent downtown building celebrated its 95th birthday

LYNDONVILLE — A prominent downtown building that “rose from the ashes” of a deadly and devastating fire was celebrated on Tuesday on account of its 95th birthday. “Happy Birthday Darling Inn” was written on a cake cut and served to diners at the Darling Inn Senior Meal Site as part of a Darling Inn celebration organized in large part by Dolores Ciechanowicz, who serves on the meal site board of directors. Music entertainer Joanne Gilman led the gathering in the Happy Birthday song. The Darling Inn serves as an apartment building for senior citizens. It is owned by Rural Edge, which performed an extensive rehabilitation on the building that began in 2015, while keeping the original features in tact.
