A decision was made this month by the board that oversees Red Cross branches across Western New York to close the Yates County American Red Cross office in Penn Yan. Director Carol Oswald says multiple Red Cross offices were effected across the western portion of the state.
Carol said she enjoyed her time serving Yates County residents and working with volunteers over the past 11 years.
Red Cross services for Yates County will now be handled out of the Finger Lakes Red Cross chapter, which is based in Seneca Falls. Phone numbers will remain the same for Yates County residents.
