wishes to extend our deepest appreciation to New Hampshire Governor John Lynch and
Hours: First Lady Dr. Lynch for participating in the Meals on Wheels Program (MOW) on Thurs-
Mon to Fri day, December 10, 2009 in Concord. The Governor and First Lady visited the central
8:30 am—2:30 pm kitchen in Concord and partook in a ride along with dedicated Meals on Wheels driver,
Eileen Frederickson. They visited four homes to witness first-hand the impact of the
Community Dining Meals on Wheels Program. Governor Lynch was impressed and stated, “The Meals on
Tues, Thurs Wheels program provides a critical safety net and makes a tremendous difference in the
12:00 noon lives of many families and seniors. This program is dedicated to feeding NH citizens and
it is important that we all support its important work.” Dr. Lynch, stated, “It is helpful for
First Friday Brunch us to see how the operation of the program works including the mechanics of preparing
February 5th the food. It is a vast network of caring people looking after the seniors.”

delivering the meal. The relationships with the drivers are often long-lasting and mean-
ingful for both the program participant and the driver. MOW is distributed through CAP’s
multi-purpose Senior Centers and two Meals on Wheels Outreach offices. If you, a loved
one or a neighbor might benefit from Meals on Wheels, please call the Mountain View
