Starting a new job, I know you have to be prepared for anything that might be thrown your way. That being said, I was NOT prepared for the task that Manjula gave me Friday morning!

For a few years now, Vermont Woods Studios has been volunteering with the Meals on Wheels program here in Vernon, VT. As part of our mission, Vermont Woods Studios is committed to giving back to our community. The Meals On Wheels Association of America is the oldest and largest national organization composed of local, community-based Senior Nutrition Programs in all 50 U.S. states.  MOWAA works to provide over one million meals to seniors every day, with close to one million volunteers helping to make it happen. Friday, I became one of those volunteers.

With Peggy out of the office, the VWS staff saw a great opportunity for the “Freshman Class” to learn what community service means within the company. So with Kendall as our guide, Heather B. and I set out to deliver the weekend meals across Vernon.

Despite a few moments of confusion, we had a great time! Being able to provide someone with a warm meal, a nice conversation and a smile is a wonderful feeling. You can tell that each person truly appreciates this service and enjoys the company of those who provide it.

I would undoubtedly suggest to anyone with a little extra time to volunteer with Meals on Wheels. It only takes an hour of your time once a week, so why not sign up today?

Thank goodness for our brilliant children, who put their parents to shame in the technology arena (and most others).  Our son, Kendall has created a Fabulous Facebook Fan Page for Vermont Woods Studios

Kendall wanted to provide a way for customers and others interested in green furniture, rainforest conservation, wildlife protection and sustainable forestry to connect and share new ideas. 

Check it out and let Kendall know how we can use it to help you and your family make informed choices about purchasing sustainable furniture and other wood products.

Thanks Kendall for all your help with our family business.  You are awesome!!
