February 2021 On the GoWWW.LOACC.INFOFollow us - Lake Oswego Adult Community Center ACCOn the Go in LO March / April 2021 Meals On WheelsMessage of Thanks We made it through 2020 in great shape thanks to a team of players, which include the wonderful and hardworking staffs at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center, Parks and Recreation, and the City of Lake Oswego. Help from the team of Volunteers, like those who delivered meals three times a week and Donors who continued to give so generously over the years and to the members of the Lake Oswego Meals Network Advisory Board who helped to develop new ways to raise money during a year where “doing it the same way” was not the norm. The TEAM pulled together, so our housebound seniors and disabled residents would receive hot, delicious, well-balanced meals. A special thank you to Ann Adrian for her leadership that kept us focused on our mission for the past 12 years. We are looking forward to 2021. ~ Malcolm Mathes, President, Lake Oswego Meals Network Advisory Board REGISTER FOR ALL VIRTUAL CLASSES Registration for ACC virtual classes are available via phone registration at 503-635-3758 or online registration at www.loparks.org.
