Letter to the Editor: Outgoing Meals on Wheels leader thankful

I write to publicly thank each one of my volunteers and every amazing Meals on Wheels client I have had the honor of getting to know and serve. Each of you have enriched my life beyond measure, I’ve oft described my role as being sandwiched between volunteers, who are with me only because they choose to be, and our Seniors, who I endearingly call libraries with skin. They are more than willing to share their history and experiences. What a blessed place to find oneself in!
To my amazing team of hundreds of volunteers, thank you. Thank you for sharing in my mission; thank you for checking in with us when things seem awry, and thanks for showing up week after week; to ensure that everyone on your route gets a nutritious meal and a warm, friendly hello.
I would also like to thank our terrific local newspapers who have granted me free space for well over 10 years to seek or acknowledge our amazing volunteers; without your support we would never have enjoyed the success we’ve had, and thank you, in advance, for publishing this Letter to the Editor. You are the sometimes unsung heroes of Addison County, keeping us all connected.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Tracy Corbett, Panton
