For 33 years, members of the Church Women United of Glendale have been presenting its Meals on Wheels benefit salad bar luncheon. This year's was July 20 at the United Methodist Church. All 144 seats were filled for a mere $7 a lunch — seconds allowed.
Event co-coordinators Evelyn Horigan and Karil Drake supervised about 20 volunteers from local and Glendale and Burbank churches. Among the volunteers was Judy Gorham, president of the Patrons Club of Glendale Community College. She manned the registration desk.
In fact, a contingent of Patrons Club members was there for salad and support. They included Jan Craig, Betty Musacco and Shirley Wright. A foursome of young girls also helped out. Emily Theiring, 8, Samantha Drake, 12, and Christina Majdan, 12, were in charge of pouring ice tea, water and coffee. Karil Drake's daughter Celeste Drake, 13, was also there to assist mom.
Calling themselves "old timers," Caroljean Felkel from Holy Family and Helen Lucas from First Methodist have been attending the salad bar benefit for all 33 years.
