Meals on Wheels Tasmania held their 20th State Conference at The Tramsheds Function Centre on Wednesday 28th September. The Conference was opened by Ross Hart MP who spoke about his own involvement with Meals on Wheels and knowing firsthand the sense of belonging, friendship and purpose that volunteering for Meals on Wheels provides. Our guest speaker of the day was Ngaire Hobbins. Ngaire specialises in geriatrics, is a lecturer in dementia studies at the University of Tasmania and is passionate about helping older people stay independent and healthy as they age. She gave a very informative and interesting talk on the dietary needs of older people. The Conference was followed by the Associations 45th AGM where a new version of The Meals on Wheels Association of Tasmanias constitution was passed with a substantial majority of the vote and four new life members (Kath Carnes, Judy Boon, Kaye Ling and Jenny Stones) were recognised for their many years of dedicated services to our Association.
