'Meals on Wheels' needs volunteers for delivery

NEIGHBORS

June 27, 1994|By PHYLLIS FLOWERS AND PHYLLIS LUCAS

"Meals on Wheels," a vital service in our community, is in critical need of volunteers to deliver nutritious meals to TC homebound people, enabling them to maintain their independence and continue to live in their own homes. Meals are delivered to people of any age or economic status who are unable to shop or prepare meals for themselves. Visits by volunteers also provide an important social interaction for the homebound and a link to the community. Young or old are encouraged to participate.

The only qualifications are that you have a valid Maryland driver's license and a vehicle to transport meals. All meals will be picked up at the Pascal Center. It takes approximately two hours for each route. Empty containers are returned to the Brooklyn Park United Methodist Church.

For more information, call 263-5444.

Looking for a great way to cool off in this scorching summer heat? The first of three authors in the county library's Summer Reading Program will appear at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Brooklyn Park Branch Library, 1 E. 11th Ave.

Former circus clown David Wisniewski will demonstrate shadow puppets to show how he developed his unique cut-paper illustrations in books such as "Elfwyn's Saga" and "Rain Player."

Children will have a chance to meet and talk with Mr. Wisniewski. This summer program is free and open to all children entering grades one through six in the fall. Advance registration is not required. Seating is limited, however, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

While you are there, be sure to pick up your Summer Reading Starter Kit and register for the Summer Reading Program.
