Mayors for Meals was a heart warming success!


I am a lifelong resident of the Bancroft area and so in my role as Program Coordinator at Community Care North Hastings I feel privileged to have the opportunity to help our senior community members thrive in their own homes.

Most recently I had the honor of assisting our local Mayors in delivering Meals on Wheels to two local gentlemen that I have known personally for many years.

Our first delivery of the day was to Mr. Joe Vance. Those who know Joe love him. He loves to joke around and tease. His sense of humor and laugh was contagious that day as we all enjoyed Joe’s tales of hunting, fishing and boating on Baptiste Lake. Mayor Vivian Bloom was so gracious…..she took time away from her very busy schedule to deliver a meal and have her photo taken. Yes, to raise awareness of the need for Meals on Wheels service in our community, but she also took that extra bit of time to visit, share a laugh and get a hug from Joe. Hi smile was warm and broad and all the thanks we needed.

Our second visit of the day was to Mr. Frank Pronovich. Frank and I have known each other for many years and we share the same birthday. Over the years I have enjoyed seeing Frank at family get togethers and so it was an extra special privilege to visit Frank in this capacity and assist Mayor Jenkins in delivering his meal to him.

Frank is one of the nicest men I’ve known. His impeccable manners and warm hospitality were evident that day as Mayor Jenkins, our delivery volunteers and CCNH staff sat together, enjoying Frank’s pictures, stories and reminiscing. Mayor Jenkins is always lovely and gracious and this day was no exception. She showed such genuine interest in Frank….his stories and his life. Frank’s warm and bright smile showed he enjoyed the visit as much as she did

It was a great day, enjoyed by everyone involved. For me it was such a joy to visit my clients and speak to them face to face. I cannot express how thankful I am to the Mayor’s for their participation in this campaign. Both are strong supporters of CCNH and the work we do and we are very grateful for their support

Thanks to everyone who was involved that day. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
