LOACC honors Frank Delano

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Frank Delano holds the award he received for his longtime service to the Meals on Wheels program at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.People have lost count of the years that Frank Delano has volunteered for the Meals on Wheels program at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.

But the LOACC has not forgotten about Delano. He was honored for his long and outstanding service on April 13.

“The ACC has never singled out a volunteer out for recognition at our annual Volunteer Appreciation event,” said Ann Adrian, ACC center manager. “But ... we changed all that by honoring Frank for his enduring support and service.

“He said he had never been so surprised in his life.”

The 91-year-old resident of West Linn comes in every Monday and goes to work. He packages meals, sanitizes the meal coolers, and Adrian said, “He does anything else we ask him to do.”

Although he had to give up driving due to his advancing age, Delano never stopped working for Meals on Wheels. He still comes to the ACC three days a week to help out.
