On April 10, 1981, Fitzie James began a remarkable 35 year career with Oakville Meals on Wheels. Fitzie embodies the true spirit of volunteerism: making a difference in the life of others, by giving selflessly of herself. Not only has she delivered a hot meal twice weekly for 35 of Meals on Wheels’ 40 years in Oakville, but she has also volunteered at Oakville Hospital pharmacy for 25 years, in Patient Transportation for 22 years and transports seniors to the Meals on Wheels program at the Sir John Colborne Center. Not surprisingly, she is a well-known face in the Oakville community to which she has given so much of her time. On behalf of Oakville Meals on Wheels, a sincere thank you (and hug) to Fitzie James, an exemplary Oakville citizen.
