Lucy French thanked all the volunteers for their on-going commitment to Meals on Wheels.

2006 MOW Lunch
Pierrette Grégoire offered to prepare a brief newsletter each month,
to keep the volunteers up to date on one another and the volunteer world.

Howard Harvey gave the financial report.
The $2.00 price charged does not cover the cost of the food and supplies,
but donations make up the difference, so the operation is in the black financially.

2006 MOW Lunch
?? , Director of Recruitment for the West Island Volunteer Bureau,
described some of the difficulties in recruiting and in volunteerism in general,
due to cut-backs in federal government funding.

Patrick Merrigan, West Island Volunteer Bureau Publicist,
led the volunteers in a few Elvis songs.
He did not have his Elvis costume with him.

Our thanks to Ann & Mel Cockhill and to Roy Rodd for preparing and serving the lunch.
We regret that we did not get them on camera.

And a few shots of the fêted volunteers.
