PREBLE COUNTY — The Preble County Council on Aging has several great opportunities for seniors.


We are closed on Thursday, Dec. 31 and Friday, Jan. 1, 2021. Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season.

Meals on Wheels, Testimony

“Thank you all for doing what you do. Special thank you to the meal delivery people that talked and laughed with my dad. The fact that you cared enough to come and tell me stories meant a lot to me. His entire schedule revolved around his ‘meals’.”

Signed, A MOW Client’s Daughter.

Chronic Disease Workshop

Holiday Food Baskets, Letter

“We are sending a sincere note to thank you for the food and other items dropped off at our house on Thursday, Dec. 17. It is truly appreciated. The entire staff is simply wonderful. They are helpful, respectful, dependable, and treat all with dignity and respect. The acts of kindness you perform go above and beyond. You not only are a blessing for the patient, but also to the caretaker and other members of the family. Your entire group is front liners, heroes, and god-sends during these difficult times. You have eased the burden for many a family. Thoughtfulness and kindness go a long way and are needed at these times. It is truly welcomed and needed. Once again, thank you for the food and the helping hand throughout the year. May the entire staff enjoy the holidays and hope for a better turnaround for 2021.”

Sincerely, A Lewisburg Couple.
