Community Action is saying goodbye today to a very dedicated volunteer who has been with the Agency for 32 years. Maudie Howell, who has been running Maudie Mae’s Soup Kitchen at the Eastern Orleans Community Center (EOCC) since 1979, is leaving and moving to Maryville, Tennessee with her family.
“She came with the building!” said co-worker Deb Whittier.
Community Action hosted a going away party for Maudie at EOCC to give customers and staff a chance to say goodbye to such a familiar face.
“My sister got me involved with Community Action at first, and then I just kept coming back. I enjoy getting to know the seniors who come here and I love the people I work with!”
Community Action will miss such a wonderful volunteer and wishes Maudie well in Tennessee.
