Arcaro & Genell Small Business Spotlight

Arcaro & Genell, a restaurant located in downtown Old Forge, was the small business spotlighted at the September 21 Lackawanna County Commissioners meeting. The operation, a staple in the “Pizza Capital of the World,” has been a mainstay in the borough for over 50 years. The restaurant’s menu covers the gamut of fine dining, pizza, clams and much more. It is open six days-a-week and offers take-outs, offsite catering and a banquet room for any occasion.

Commissioners Declare Hunger Action Month

Nearly 30,000 individuals in Lackawanna County struggle with hunger on a daily basis. In an attempt to raise awareness of this vital community issue and to help the less fortunate get the resources they need, the Lackawanna County Commissioners designated September as “Hunger Action Month.” The County is committed to working with the Commission on Economic Opportunity for the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank to let people know how they can assist local pantries, shelters and soup kitchens with donations.
