Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels (YMOW) is serving up its annual Pi(e) and a Pint event with a side of adventure this year. Join the YMOW team at The Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti on Pi Day, March 14, where you can enjoy a slice of pie (or another tasty treat) and a pint of locally crafted beer for just $14 - the cost of two days' worth of healthy meals for a homebound senior. The event takes place from noon to 9 p.m. and offers delicious treats that range from sweet to savory.
At 6 p.m. the adventure begins with a D&D game, featuring well-known Ypsi gamers like Angel Vanas of Star Studio, and Micheal Patino of the Tipsi Ypsi Paint Party Studio. The Quest is tied to YMOW's mission - getting essential supplies to those in need. Event attendees can play along with YMOW's band of heroes by donating to get them level-ups and supplies. Guests can vote in "choose your own adventure" polls to determine the next action the players take.
Mary Ducker began caring for others long before she embarked on a career in nursing. As an eighth-grader, she volunteered at a local nursing home, and in high school, she tutored younger students who needed a little help. Now, as a retired nurse, she gives her time to her homebound neighbors as a volunteer for Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels.
“It’s kind of in my nature,” said Mary, YMOW’s final Volunteer of the Quarter for 2022.
