Kristi’s Update

Every May, the nation is reminded to celebrate Older
Americans Month. Here at Meals on Wheels, I’d like to
think we celebrate older Americans every day by serving
meals and providing social contact for our senior
participants.
In addition, the volunteers who provide service to our
participants are largely seniors themselves: 3/4 of our
volunteers are over age 60, and our oldest volunteer
driver is 92 years old! All our volunteers truly live out this
year’s theme of Connect, Create, and Contribute. I can’t
think of any group who contributes more to the wellbeing
and happiness of local seniors than our amazing
volunteers!
If nothing else, I hope that Older Americans Month
prompts us all to take time to talk with a senior and
appreciate his/her contribution to our world!
