Newsletter January 2017

Hello Everyone, Welcome to the 2017 Newsletter for Meals on Wheels. We hope you are all well and ready for a fun packed year. This year we will be focusing on improving our services to our clients & the whole community and doing a lot of marketing of the quality services we do have in Cowra. The service held a planning day in December and from that we will develop a marketing plan. So keep an eye out and help promote our service.

The service relies on wonderful volunteers to assist with the delivery and we are always looking for extra helpers. If you know of someone or would like to help, please contact the office.

DID YOU KNOW- we deliver delicious Meat salads on Tuesdays & Thursdays, so if you would like to try one please call. This is a great option in this hot weather.
