Jervis Bay and District Meals on Wheels' official opening

A GREAT organisation will always attract good people and this was the case at the official opening Jervis Bay and District Meals on Wheels (MOW).

Volunteers, potential volunteers, community members and special guests all attended the event held at Huskisson on Tuesday.

The group was officially formed earlier this year.

The Huskisson/Vincentia group merged with the St Georges Basin group, formally based at the Meriton Street community centre, to form the Jervis Bay and Districts Meals on Wheels.

For sustainability and financial reasons, it made sense for the groups to join and operate from the Shoalhaven City Council facility in Watt Street, Huskisson.

Group president Sue O’Brien, at the official opening, thanked everyone who played a role in helping the group get off to a smooth start.

She also presented certificates to people who helped the group form.

Mrs O’Brien is proud of the important community role served by the Jervis Bay and District Meals on Wheels group.

The group leader said people had many skills MOW could use.

MOW always need more helpers for administration roles, washing up and people who could take social media roles.

People of all ages can volunteer with MOW.
