The members of the Active 20-30 Club certainly don't think so! For the second con- secutive year they'll don masks and costtimes to entertain children at St. Michael's hospital. Organized to help youth the 20-member club has Anne Campbell Singers, the travel group from Winston Churchill high school and Coaldale s Community band. Gordon Valgardson is president. The group meets every other Wednesday night at the Holiday Inn.

Malconi Jeffreys, executive director of the Association for the Mentally Retarded has left Lethbridge to assume a similar position in "Nova Scotia. The 20 members of YACMR, Youth Across Canada interested in the Mentally Retarded, deserve a special bouquet for the way they worked for the'100 handicapped youngsters at the Civic Centre for the Southern Alberta Regional Special Games.' Local president, Boyd Haliman, 23, who oversaw the opera- tion threw Himself into helping the handicapped after reading a Flowers of Hope ad. He and fellow members have opened a Saturday afterrioon Drop In centre for handicapped youngsters at St. Patrick's church in an effort to encourage them away from watcBinfrtelevision.

The local gardener won the W. J. Cardy Memorial Shield for highest aggregate points; the Dorothy Tolniie award for highest show points outside Three Hills, plus the gladioli championship.

Karen Holms, who houses the club's Meals on wheels needs more clients Wanted: several hungry people unable to prepare their own meals, .to receive inexpensive hot dinners five days a week. Sound too good to be .true? Not if you're a recipient of Lethbridge's. Meals on Wheels service. Meals on Wheels, a volunteer non profit organization, has been brightening the days of the elderly and house bound since delivering noon ineals and much needed human contact. Mrs. Nora Hawn, president of the Meals on Wheels board of directors, says the ser- vice, is now being made available to 30 people, but is geared to deliver more meals. "We can handle 'a total of about 40 says Mrs. Hawn. "Most of our recipients are elderly, but we can serve people of any young mothers who are temporarily bed ridden, people who've had an accident or surgery and can't help themselves." Meals on Wheel deliveries are made possible by 125 volunteers who donate their own time, vehicles and gas to pick up the packaged meals from the Town Chef where they are prepared and deliver them throughout the city. Mrs. Ethel Reid, co ordinator of the program is responsible for organizing volunteers, mapping out delivery routes, over seeing the meal packaging and a myriad of accompanying details. "We've advertised the program exten- says Mrs. Reid, "But there are still people who say they've never heard of meals or. wheels It's true the service is used to keep senior citizens independent and in their own homes, but it's available to people of any age, who need help tem- porarily." Mrs. Reid says some people think there is a stigma attached to receiving meals on wheels. "That's just no she emphasizes. "There's no charity involved. People pay for service according to their means." Charges range from per meal. And the meal, delivery means a great deal to clients. The volunteers are never too busy to stop for a brief chat with recipients while dropping off the food. Sometimes their Monday through Friday visits are the clients only link with the community. "These are my jokes one 80-year old recipient who is often con- fined to bed. Meals on Wheels income from client fees and community donations is augmented by a net budget from city Preventive Social Services.
