I've had a busy week connecting with senior service agencies and the folks who patronize them and volunteer with them. On Wednesday, I participated in Big Wheels Deliver Meals for Elder Care Services. They were nice enough to partner me with Marjorie Turnbull, ex legislator and philanthropist, with whom I enjoyed delivering meals and sharing time.
On Thursday at lunch, Elder Care Services conducted their volunteer recognition. Almost 500 volunteers and supporters were on hand. Fellow Realtor Ben Trexler with Linda Dix Realty won their prestigious Frances Clay Award for his volunteering with the Meals on Wheels program and going extra to support the seniors he delivers meals to.
Thursday night was the Senior Expo at the Senior Center. Over 70 exhibitors were there to inform the older population of their services with prizes and giveaways. It's a great way to let the community know who and what businesses are out there serving seniors. The expo continued on into Friday from 9 until 12:30 at the Senior Center.
This is a group of people and services I'm pleased to be connected with, serving a population that is growing in our community who not only need our help and services but also give of themselves to help others.
Like Marjorie Turnbull said during our meal delivery time on Wednesday, Tallahassee is a very caring community and I too am proud to be a part of it.
