Beloit Meals on Wheels celebrated their 48th anniversary on July 16 during their annual meeting and volunteer recognition event which was held at La Casa Grande. The evening gave them an opportunity to shine a light on the board members and volunteers who lend their time, talent and voice to make a difference in the community. During the event, outgoing board members, Jeff Johnson, Erik Rozolis and Paige Sweet were thanked for their hard work and dedication, and incoming board members, Michelle Fitzgerald, Amy Lokrantz and Steve Neas were introduced.
During the event, Joyce Berg was acknowledged as the longest serving volunteer, serving for a total of 46 years. Berg, like many of the volunteers, provides a spirit of compassion to our home bound clients and countless of others in the community. It's not just about the meal coming to the door, it's also the smile, friendly visit and safety check, from volunteers that makes up Meals on Wheels delivery.
