More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.
As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in Enumclaw to make it an even better place to live?
Local volunteers are already picking up the effort to deliver hot meals to home-based seniors in the new Neighbors Feeding Neighbors program for a nominal cost. There was a period earlier this year when it appeared that hot meals would no longer be provided and that frozen meals would be delivered instead.
Nothing wrong with frozen meals, but according to Senior Center Manager Jobyna Nickum, not every senior is able to recognize when they are hungry and physically retrieve the meal from the freezer and reheat it. “The home delivery program is more than food, it is a demonstration in care and compassion that organizers hope to continue through a local food program,” she said. “The value of having a familiar face knock on the door with a hot nutritious meal is priceless.”
Neighbors Feeding Neighbors is also looking to expand its services for the youth of the community as well. Click here to read more.
There has also been talk from the city about exploring a community center for Enumclaw, though that was very preliminary.
What is on your Enumclaw wish list? What is one thing you would improve in 2013 - the city's centennial year?
