For the last thirty years I’ve done a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Raising five children has forced me to be very flexible in my work.
For 23 years, Merle has been a volunteer and delivered food to friends and neighbors in Arlington, Alexandria, and Falls Church, Virginia through the Meals on Wheels program. For Merle, she is not only delivering food, she is bringing precious friendship and a human touch to many who need it desperately.
Merle is also a "babysitter extraordinaire." She will sit for any child under 13, and she is always helping members of her church and moms in the broader community who just need a little break. As a member of the United Methodist Church, Merle has long been active helping coordinate church events. Also, do you need a chauffeur? Call Merle. She is always bringing members of her church to doctors' appointments, dialysis, or anywhere else you can imagine.
