As is the case for most recent retirees, Suzy and Cary Engleberg’s decision to end their work careers came with the gift of more time - a gift that they are eager to share with their community and with Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels.
Each Wednesday the couple arrives at YMOW to load up meals for delivery to the Lynden Park apartments, where they bring food to about a dozen Meals on Wheels clients. Suzy said she and Cary work as a team to ensure each person gets the meals they are expecting, as well as the care and attention they need.
“Four eyes are better than two eyes,” Suzy said.
“I always said when I retired I would have more time to do volunteer work,” Suzy said. That time came during the pandemic, when she made the decision to join Cary’s post-career lifestyle. But the couple found few opportunities to work together, as many organizations remained under restrictions due to COVID-19.
YMOW, however, welcomed their help.
These kids from Center Stage Productions aren't just talented performers, they're also really good at pouring lemonade! A great big thank you to these young volunteers for making our Fourth of July Lemonade Lane event a success!
