With everything from hearing and hospice to eye care and exercise, the Highland Lakes United Methodist Church’s health fair had information to cover everyone from head to toe. The fair, held Saturday, May 9, at the church’s annex, featured 32 vendors and exhibitors with information on hospitals, hospice, dentistry, orthodontics, salons/spas, sports medicine and physical therapy, eye care, massage, exercises, chiropractic care and more. Grady Roe, the church’s pastor, said he wants to minister not only to the mind and spiritual needs of those he serves, but also to the physical health of the community, as well.
Delivering hot, ready-toeat meals day-in, day-out is what they do, but the tables were turned on the group of dedicated volunteers thanking them for all they do. They were the approximately 50 Meals on Wheels volunteers at the recognition luncheon held in honor of the organization’s volunteers and drivers at the Lutie Watkins Memorial Methodist Church Thursday, May 7. The luncheon was the organization’s way to thank its volunteers for the weekday deliveries they make of about 22 hot, fresh meals to those who are homebound, according to Irene Fullmer of the Meals on Wheels program.
