Note Of Gratitude

 

Dear Editor,

The Friends of the Oakdale Library would additionally like to thank Mr. George Rose for his generous donation to our recent annual Used Book Sale. He was inadvertently omitted in our original letter of thanks.

Meals On Wheels

 

Dear Editor,

The new proposed federal budget is targeting cuts to the national Meals on Wheels programs. Here in Stanislaus County, Meals on Wheels supports local seniors aged 60 and over by providing excellent meals in a home delivery system. These meals are also provided at senior feeding sites throughout the county. These worthy programs will end if the cuts are approved by Congress in the next fiscal year.

The meals are prepared fresh at the Howard Training Center located off of Hatch Road in Ceres. It is a nice facility they have there.

The home delivery program is set up for homebound seniors who do not have resources to get to a grocery store. Most are poor and without this source of food, many would just go hungry. If anyone cannot eat well, their health will fail. These meals have been a staple in our community for many years. Many seniors in the Oakdale and Riverbank areas as well as over the entire county need these meals.

Now is the time to contact our local Congressman Jeff Denham and let his office know how you feel about it all. I have emailed letters to him opposing these cuts. Funds are being shifted to pay for increased military spending. It seems like America is always getting ready for the next war, let’s stop this craziness.
