Ever wondered about Meals on Wheels? Our Meals on Wheels program is for the person needing a little extra help at home. We provide a noon meal to the person who is homebound, the person who is unable to fix their own lunch. The meals are prepared by the dietary department at St. Catherine Hospital to accommodate special diets. They are delivered to your door by eight volunteers every week day. Meals on Wheels are delivered Monday through Friday. On Friday you can receive a sack lunch for Saturday. Want to help?

* You can help by working part time for the Senior Center as the kitchen coordinator.

* You can help by volunteering to deliver meals. We can work around your schedule.

* You can help by suggesting Meals on Wheels to a friend or loved one.

* You can help "Feed a Friend" by underwriting the cost of one week's meals.

During September we are offering one week of free meals to any customer new to Meals on Wheels. Take advantage of this free meal offer and sign up now. For more information about Meals on Wheels, call Patti Thummel or myself at 272-3620.

Many thanks to last week's Meals on Wheels volunteers, RSVP volunteers.

We have been especially busy at the Senior Center this month. September is National Senior Center Month and to celebrate we have planned some new activities. Check us out.
