(from right to left) Ilene Beacham, Neighborly Care Network Meals on Wheels site coordinator, greets volunteers Fred Snook and Terri Horne at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Clearwater as they prepare to deliver hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors on a recent Monday morning. Snook has served as a volunteer for the past six years. Horne has contributed her services for the past two years. More volunteers are needed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Pickup and delivery of meals takes about 1.5 hours. All volunteers receive training. For more information, call Pat Hofstadter at 573-9444, ext. 291. Neighborly Care Network, formerly Neighborly Senior Services, has been assisting seniors in this area since 1966.
