What's For Dinner service to continue?
FAIR HAVEN - After taking orders for his homemade, catered meals via Internet during early 2013, Jack Adams of Fair Haven spent most of his summer out of the kitchen. He's been tied up with summer classes to ready him for continuing to teach computer science at Rutland Middle School. Customers would choose which of two menu items they wanted on a given day, call in 24 hours in advance or more, and have their meals delivered between 6 and 7 p.m. Will Adams continue his What's For Dinner service now that the school year has begun again? Maybe, or maybe switch to only occasional catering. He, his wife, and four children are still discussing their 2013-2014 schedule.
