La Jolla Meals on Wheels, a service organization that provides meals to La Jolla seniors and those who are homebound, celebrated its volunteers (and its 40th anniversary) Oct. 25, 2014 at a luncheon at the Mission Bay Yacht Club. Some of the organization’s founding members attended, as did longtime and more recent volunteers.

Board President Ron Jones told the gathering, “One thing I want to make clear, is how important your work really is. … Volunteering is becoming something of the past — high schools require community service, so there isn’t the sense of giving — so I want to salute you and let you know how valued you are.”
