Peninsula Volunteers keeps many of the senior citizens of Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Atherton who are in need (and you’d be surprised how many that is) going strong. They fund Meals on Wheels, Rosener House (relief for caregivers), Little House (senior citizens’ classes, workshops and exercise spots), and two apartment complexes with low income prices. The pictures below are: the Meals on Wheels delivery truck (along with many of the PVs own cars, of course.) And the second picture is of Jack, my husband, our daughter Linda (who will head up Meals on Wheels this coming year), and me.

We are at the dedication of the inner courtyard do-over named for one of the Peninsula Volunteers, Ann Griffith, who has done so much for the organization. This was funded by John Arrillaga, the philanthropist, and Mervyn and Roz Morris. Now diners and meeting attendees will be shielded by a huge tarp-like structure to keep out the sun and can enjoy the flowers that are everywhere in the courtyard.
