A volunteer makes a big difference


SUN Columnist

Thank you, Deborah, for you volunteer work in the office.

Due to the staff reduction, Deborah has been working diligently at getting me caught up; my 50-hour work week thanks you, and so does my family!

Through town

Yep, that’s where the bus goes ... the senior bus that is.

We are at your service, so get out in the community and let us do the driving.

Get to where you need to go; door-to-door bus service is available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for seniors age 60-plus. Suggested donation is $2 per day.

What are you waiting for? Call for details at 264-2167.

Special delivery 

Are you struggling to get meals prepared because you are homebound, recovering from surgery or an illness?

If so, let us do the cooking.

Enjoy Cafe Fox meals delivered to your door. Our hot meal, home delivery program is available to those living closer to town four days per week, with frozen meals for Thursdays and weekends. Those living farther out of town may be eligible for the frozen meal program.

Meals are available to people age 60-plus for a suggested donation of $3 per meal.
