This past Monday, I took part in the “Meals on Wheels” program alongside Lexington resident and volunteer Verna Thayer from Minuteman Senior Services as part of this year’s March for Meals campaign. This program provides a truly essential service for homebound seniors. Every time I accompany the folks who deliver meals to people who, because of age or illness, are confined to their homes, I’m struck by the dedication and compassion of these wonderful volunteers.
