Who's ready for Let's Do Lunch?
Let's Do Lunch Volunteers Needed!
Friday, June 16th 10:00am – 1pm  Delivery volunteers are needed to transport boxed lunches to local businesses and organizations that order 5 or more meals.  Shifts will vary depending on routes and time that meals were requested for delivery.  We could use several volunteers with large vehicles for some of the big orders.  
10:30am-2pm  We will need a few volunteers at Eat-in to help assist customers to their seats, clear tables, pass out surveys, etc.  We will also need a few to work outside on traffic and/or handicap assistance.
May is Older Americans Month and this year's theme was Age Out Loud.  This theme shines a light on many important trends. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. What it means to age has changed, and OAM 2017 is a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today.  To celebrate the LOA staff demonstrated how they Age Out Loud!
