Meals on Wheels helps everyone

Letters

Alma is Meals on Wheels, with a lot of support from her devoted and good cooking husband.

This generous and caring effort from the community to provide its house bound citizens healthy, low priced meals, three days a week, would not survive without them.

The great thing about Meals on Wheels is that it benefits everyone involved. The people who work in the kitchen have a great time chatting, sharing and telling each other some of the stories that make up their lives. I suggested last week that pants might be called “bun bags.” Everyone rolled their eyes. Typical day in the kitchen.

Sadly, I have to move.  It is an on-going effort to try and get enough volunteers to keep the kitchens and deliveries going.  I know Alma will miss me, if not for my great sense of humor, then for the hole I leave that she will have to try and fill. My most sincere hope is that one or two or three people will step in behind me.  It is only two mornings a month. What ever job you choose will be fun and enjoyable, spent with good and dedicated people.

You will make Alma’s life much easier, as well as the people who benefit from this great community service that helps make this a great communty.
