Meals on Wheels.
Dear Fellow OMC Member:
By now, as one of the newer members of the Osterville Mens Club (OMC), you certainly have discovered that one of the cornerstones of the Club is its commitment to actively participating in, and supporting, programs that directly benefit the community around us. Whether it is through our annual college scholarships program for Barnstable High School seniors…or service to the Salvation Army’s Miracle Kitchen….or participating in the OMC’s Day of Caring activities, the Club is an active ambassador of good deeds for the greater Barnstable community.
Another extremely important social outreach effort for the OMC is its MEALS ON WHEELS (MOW) PROGRAM. Each year, OMC members deliver thousands of meals to seniors, aged 60 and over, who are homebound and cannot prepare a meal on their own, thereby enabling elders to enhance their quality of life and maintain their independence. Home delivered meals are provided by OMC drivers on Friday of each week to every village in Barnstable.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
It will not surprise you to learn that the COVID-19 Pandemic has resulted in a dramatic increase for meal delivery services to our community’s elder population. In fact, MOW demand has risen by over 100% from previous years. Unfortunately, the pandemic also has impacted our group of dedicated drivers: Several of our most committed drivers have had to temporarily step back from the program due to concerns for their own health. Fortunately, however, not one of our drivers has contracted COVID thus far. Nevertheless, we need more drivers than ever before!
As a newer member in the OMC, if you have been looking for a community service project to get engaged with, the OMC Meals on Wheels program is a wonderful opportunity for you.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO GET STARTED?
If you are interested in learning more about the program and how you can participate, contact Wes Harrington (OMC/MOW Program Coordinator) and he’ll give you all the details about the program You can also go to the Club’s website to find details on what is involved in becoming a certified driver for the program. You can contact Wes either by phone (Home-508-420-2108) or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE CONSIDER PARTICIPATING IN THIS IMPORTANT OMC EFFORT! ***

This is a handicap league that bowls each Thursday, 11:00 am at the Ryan Amusement Center in Yarmouth. Since it is handicapped, your skill level is not a major factor. Substitutes are encouraged to participate since there are 8 teams and currently 32 full time bowlers. The season is from September until April. This allows players to participate in the start of golf season. At the end of each season everyone receives a monetary award based on their teams final standing at a banquet. Fun is had by all.

The OMC Investment Club meets the fourth Tuesday of the month or as scheduled. Our meetings are very pro active as all members participate in selecting and presenting investments that they think are good value and have upside potential. We also invite Financial Advisors and Investment Managers to make presentations. There is no investment of actual cash. We do keep a “portfolio” of stocks we have mutually decided to “follow” but only as an academic exercise and also to add a little drama. We sometimes have a guest speaker from our local investment community to add some perspective. We do not have any “selling” presentations from guest speakers. Some recent discussion topics we have discussed include the bond market, trusts and wills, the near term direction of the stock market and promising sectors to invest in. We meet about 9 times a year at The Osterville Public Library, usually from 10 am until shortly before noon, and usually on a Tuesday.
