Many thanks to Connie and Neil Sullivan, owners of the St. Vrain Market, who recently partnered with Lyons Meals on Wheels (MOW) by offering free sandwiches to MOW clients once a week. Currently eight homebound clients receive nutritious meals Tuesday through Friday. Thanks to the Sullivans, fresh sandwiches are now delivered on Mondays. The meals are dropped off by volunteer drivers Ann Low, Mark Browning, Lori Matthews,
Pam Freeman and Ron Gosnell. Toni St. John organizes it all, working closely with Emily Dusel, Executive Director of LEAF (Lyons Emergency Assistance Fund). Clients contribute for the meals on a sliding scale based on income.
