Longtime Sooke Meals on Wheel’s volunteer earns prestigious honour

May Anderson has served more than 25 years with the organization

A long-time volunteer with Meals on Wheels has been acknowledged for her quarter century of service in the community with a Vera award.

May Anderson received a VERA (Valued Elder Recognition Award) from the University of Victoria’s Institute on Aging and Lifelong Health for her volunteer efforts with Meals on Wheels at the end of September.

Anderson has served as president, secretary, treasurer and team leader during her 25 years with the organization, said Lorraine Hoy, president of the Sooke chapter of Meals on Wheels.

“May is always there, always ready to step up, whatever the need,” said Lorraine Hoy, president of the Sooke chapter of Meals on Wheels. “She’s done everything you could ask in amazing fashion. May and husband Bill have quietly kept us rolling for many years.”
