6 Years and Running… Thank You to the Reifsteck Family!!

For the 6th year in a row, the Reifsteck family have made and donated over 300 holiday gift bags for the Athens Community Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels volunteers.  Included in the bags are some chocolates donated by McLane Southeast.  Joyce and Fred Reifsteck III and their son Fred IV put the bags together and brought them to the volunteers last week.  Each one of the meals volunteers got their treat when they went on their route this week.  Pictured here is Morgan O’Kelley with the Meals on Wheels program accepting the donations from Fred IV and Joyce.  Thank you so much from ACCA and all of the volunteers for Meals on Wheels.  Read more (by  CLICKING HERE) about the volunteers for the Meals on Wheels program or how you can become in this recent article by the Athens Banner-Herald.

Athens Community Council on Aging hosts a holiday tea party each year during the holidays as a fundraiser for the local non-profit. The event setting is at the city’s old train depot which currently houses the ACCA. Not only are those in attendance filled with sweet and savory tea snacks but they also get to mix and mingle with Santa and Mrs. Claus. This year the event was sponsored by Epting Events and Athens Banner-Herald. Click on the picture above for a full album of photos.
