Happy Thanksgiving! Each year, Thanksgiving is a good reminder to me to express gratitude for the many folks who make Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels a success, including the entire Meals on Wheels team. Our team includes generous and dedicated volunteers, staff, donors, sponsors, grant-funders, our friends at Aging & Long Term Care, our Senior Life Resources Finance, Payroll, & Human Resources teams, our Home Care Services team, and so many more. Without ALL of these wonderful supporters, our program and our services would be greatly diminished. I am thankful for every person who contributes their time and talent to our agency.

This year, I have an additional bit of gratitude for Meals on Wheels in general. At the end of October, I will volunteered for a day at the Meals on Wheels program in Great Falls, Montana—my hometown. The program in Great Falls serves three households of my family members, and I am eternally grateful for the care and kindness, meals and compassion, provided by their staff and volunteers. I am thankful that my family can depend on the nutritious meals and the daily visit with the drivers. I’m also thankful for my service opportunity to contribute to this program that helps my family members remain living independently in their own homes.

As I’m finishing my final months of work before retirement in February, I’m thankful for my 14+ years of
work with Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels. I believe that it’s an honor and a privilege to serve our community, and our work at Meals on Wheels is incredibly fulfilling. Even on our most challenging days, our service makes the lives of our seniors just a bit better, and we are so fortunate to serve the folks whose work has built our community. We are thankful for each and every one of the wonderful seniors we serve and whose presence in our lives enriches us.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
