Earlier this year, Riderwood hosted the fortieth anniversary celebration of Colesville Meals on Wheels.  

Attendees included current and past board members and volunteers, including residents Becky and Alan Hedin, who have been involved with the organization for many years and held a variety of positions.

Becky, who chaired the fortieth anniversary celebration, has served as volunteer coordinator and managed volunteers on Fridays, ensuring that there were enough people to cover all of the meal delivery routes. She even used to bring her three-year-old son along with her to drive food to clients. 

“Getting to know the dedicated volunteers and the friendships that endure make working with Meals on Wheels incredibly special,” Becky says. “For example, one of my Friday volunteers started delivering when her youngest daughter was about two years old.  Now her daughter is in college, and Trish continues to come each Friday and now serves as our treasurer.”
