Marietta Franciscan Community Meals
The Marietta Franciscan Community Meals board held its monthly luncheon and business meeting at Shoney's Restaurant on June 12. Fifteen board members were present.
Chairman Judy Grize opened the meeting with prayer. Minutes of the previous meeting were read by secretary Suzie Walters. Treasurer Norma Lang gave the financial statement and reported that 80 volunteers (office workers and drivers) volunteered 320 hours to deliver 550 meals in May. Committee reports were given by Jackie Lang, driver scheduling, and Mary Offenberger, client contact.
Mae Lang, who passed away this month, was remembered fondly by those present. She was not only a board member for many years but also a driver and office worker. Our sympathy goes out to her family.
Anyone interested in having meals delivered to their home should call the Franciscan Meals office at 373-7998 or Mary Rita Offenberger at 373-2762. Meals can be delivered five days a week at $3 per meal.
The Franciscan Meals Program is a non-profit organization and a totally volunteer program with no paid employees affiliated with the Retired Senior Volunteer Program. Volunteers provide their own vehicles, gas and time. Food providers include Harmar Place, Marietta Center and Selby Hospital.
