For this post, I am looking back three decades. So, let’s start with a retrospective of the year 1985. ·         Brian Mulroney was the Prime Minister ·         David Peterson was the Premier of Ontario ·         Rick Hansen was on his “Man in Motion Tour” ·         The RMS Titanic was found off the coast of Newfoundland ·         The Edmonton...
We are all lucky to share our journey with people who add to our lives. They impart knowledge, provide a new way of looking at things, lead by example, and share what has made their own life so full.  I have found this to be true of many volunteers I have come to know over the years. After seventeen years, I am fully aware what a gift this is to...
A special Lunch Bunch Outing will be taking place on February 14th. As soon as notices were sent to clients, the response was terrific. The date filled up quickly with clients eager to attend. As it turned out, twenty-three clients registered to participate. The Four Seasons will be their destination for lunch.  This restaurant offers the things...
I was not aware that groundhogs were the largest species in the squirrel family and never actually associated these two. Both can certainly be pesky. Any one whose backyard is home to a complex, underground burrowing system, knows that groundhogs can be even more pesky than their smaller squirrel relative. Perhaps your neighbourhood groundhog has...
Two weeks ago, Julie had already delivered her regular meal routes on Wednesday and Thursday.  She then agreed to deliver a spare route on Friday. That morning she headed off to our South Depot to pick up the first route of the day. I wondered, did she have any feelings of foreboding, or a nagging suspicion of what awaited her, our intrepid meal...
First month of the calendar year – big expectations. You have started the new year off on the right foot, if you are wearing the right pair of winter boots. A practical pair, the type you don’t worry about being stained by that unattractive salt residue. As the deep freeze settled upon us, my heart iced up too. Ah, heck – my whole body was chilled...
Dear Editor; This holiday season provides so many opportunities to reflect on the important things in life, such as family, faith, joy, hope and peace.  As I reflect on the year that is drawing to a close this holiday season, I can’t help but feel deep gratitude for the angels who give and support our community that live among us.  As Executive...
By: Laura Christie And so, it has begun, the lead up to Christmas Day. Whether the count down is a delicious chocolate advent calendar, or daily radio announcements that proclaim there are only, “11 more days to go”. The parking lots of local malls, so jam packed it requires a hunt down rows of cars to find a spot, certainly stands as a reminder...
By: Vanessa Cullen There are many, many options…it’s a big number and probably not something you might think about day to day. Well, up to November 28th, I didn’t give it much thought either. On Tuesday, November 28th (which was also Giving Tuesday), Meals on Wheels London hosted its first gala event called The Gift of Food. We used this...
When I was six years old, a doll called Baby Say N’ See, was at the top of my list for Santa Claus. I wanted her desperately. I just googled this doll and she looked nothing like I remembered. In fact, Baby Say N’ See, with her glorious auburn hair, had a caption beside her picture which read “creepiest doll”. I should have left well enough alone...
