Thank you Decatur County from Meals on Wheels

Dear Editor:

April 29 was a day of celebration for Greensburg Meals on Wheels (MOW). This was the day we honored our volunteer drivers. These dedicated individuals are the reason MOW can continue serving our community. They give of themselves not only by delivering meals to our clients, but also by becoming friends to our clients. They check on these clients daily and make sure they don’t need anything. On some days, drivers are the only contact clients have with the outside world.

While preparing for this big day, I reflected upon how blessed MOW is to have each one of our drivers. I contemplated the fact that drivers often bring their children or grandchildren with them to deliver meals. What a wonderful thing to teach future leaders of this community about the value of doing for others!

I watched my own grandmother do MOW when I moved to Greensburg during High School. Upon starting my work with MOW, my children were brought up delivering meals; today, I’m proud to say my grandchildren help deliver meals. I applaud MOW drivers not only for their selflessness, but for handing this wonderful trait down to their children and grandchildren. Greensburg will be blessed for generations to come due to these wonderful volunteers teaching upcoming volunteers this gift.

These wonderful people who deliver meals are: Marlene and Brian Wolter; Doug and Joann Fry; Marilyn Woods; Betty Springmier; Dick and Alice Rust; Judy Muckerheid; Jean Evans; Claude and Dottie Bilbrey; Bob and Joan Navarra; Sharon Herbert; Sheryl Soendlin; Debbie Coy; Bill and Sandy Pratt; Carol Bishop; Fred and Sarah Deiwert; Dennis and Susan Wilson; Max Hufferd; Jan Johnson; Brentley Smith; Cricket Snodgrass; Kelly Hatfielld; Lynda Keillor; Marlene Cochran; Joe and Anne Westhafer; Kristi Jarvis; Heather Miller; Diane Simmonds; Sharon Wickens; Ted and Linda White; Emily Robbins; Bryan Robbins; Roger and Mary Ann Welage.
