Winsted

WINSTED — The Winsted Senior Center has purchased a new van, with help from a grant from the Department of Transportation.

The state paid for 80 percent of the $55,000 purchase price of the new Ford TranStar van; the town paid the remaining 20 percent.

“We needed something we could depend on,” she said.

The van is used to take Winsted residents who are 55 and older, and residents who have disabilities, to medical appointments...
