CRAFT AND CROP WEEKEND EVENT!


Our “MEALS ON WHEELS” Group Needs Volunteers!

Back in 1975, thirty-nine years ago, a group of Visitation members volunteered to serve the Meals on Wheels program with the Senior Center here in Huntsville. Every fourth Tuesday of each month, our Visitation Group has met at the Senior Center to pick up the meals to make delivery. Because of aging or health issues, many of these faithful servants are now having to give up this worthy cause, so our group is in dire need of replacements for some of our routes. We need your help desperately, so if you are interested and want to help, please contact Jeannie Glyn or Lu Anne Simond at the Senior Center: (256) 382-0920. For more information you may contact Margo Williams at (256) 721-1665.
