Howard Fligg signed on three and half years ago as a volunteer with the Meals on Wheels Program, delivering meals once a month to adults who are isolated or in need of a little help getting proper nutrition.
When the program expanded from four to five a days a week, Howard volunteered to deliver meals twice a month. When the Meaford program needed a a spare driver, he volunteered for as many as eight deliveries a month.
“It’s nice to get out and meet people,” Howard said. “Generally, clients are happy to see me. When Support Services ask me: Will you do it? I say: Sure.”
Howard has decided to retire from volunteer work at the end of December. He will be missed by clients, fellow volunteers and the Grey Bruce Home and Community Support Services staff.
“Howard was always available at a moment’s notice,” according to Tina Ziel, Meals on Wheels Service Clerk. “That was greatly appreciated. We wish him all of the very best in his continued retirement. Our team and our clients will certainly miss him.”
