TOWN:Salad bar benefits Meals on Wheels


July 18, 2007|By RUTH SOWBY

Want something done? Ask a 90-year-old church woman to do it. Just like Iva Carrico from Glendale's Incarnation Church. Practically single-handed, Carrico was in charge of the decoration theme and its execution at the 30th annual Meals on Wheels Salad Bar Lunch on July 10 at the First United Methodist Church in Glendale.

Sponsored by Glendale Church Women United, funds from the $6-a-plate salad bar will provide scholarships for the Salvation Army's Meals on Wheels program. Last year's salad bar brought in more than $1,100.

Carrico's "Happy Face" theme was well in evidence from stickers to table decorations, welcoming the more than 150 in attendance.

Glendale residents attending were co-chairwomen Evelyn Horigan and Karil Drake, President of Church Women United Jean Parks, Marilynne Durand, Jo McCarty, Cathy Meli, Jerry Gagnon, Martha McDaniel, Mary Weiss, Jo Galloway, Aurora Teti and Mary Ellen Ulrich.


There were 17 church congregations in and around Glendale that donated the luncheon food and workers. For the second year in a row, Glendale restaurants have also donated food, including Billy's, Milano's, Damon's, Foxy's, Shaker's and the Toasted Bun.

Damon's Steak House owners donated the 70th anniversary earnings of $13,695 to Glendale Healthy Kids' sponsorship of the USC Mobile Dental Clinic on Saturday. Damon's owners Patrick Campbell and Joe Ayvazi presented their check at an open house where children from Glendale schools were undergoing dental procedures in Roosevelt's Middle School gymnasium and outside trailers.

There are 85 students from the Glendale Unified School District who have appointments for free dental procedures through July 20.

Each child will average five appointments throughout this week to complete their dental work. Last year, Glendale Healthy Kids donated $111,808 of dental services to Glendale school children.

Glendale Healthy Kids board members and their associates took civic leaders on tours of the five USC Mobile Dental Clinic trailers in operation at the site.

Guides included Glendale Healthy Kids President Katherine Powers, Glendale Healthy Kids board members Ruth Charles and Barry McComb, Glendale Healthy Kids Executive Director Camille Levee, new Glendale Unified School District Assistant Supt. of Educational Services Dick Sheehan, school district board members Joylene Wagner and Mary Boger, and vice president of Comprehensive Community Health Centers Bob Howard.
