Meals on Wheels volunteers more than delivery people

We applaud all who take part in Meals on Wheels, and especially those volunteers who take much more than just food to recipients.

Last week’s Drug Court Ceremony was good for the graduates, their families and their friends. It was also good for the community, and is something we all should support. (August 18, 2014, Page 4)
