Joan Levesque-Arguin  Receives the Massachusetts Commonwealth Heroines Award


Joan delivers Meals on Wheels with her Sister Babs. Joan and Babs worked side by side until Babs recently passed away with Alzheimer's. We admired Joan's devotion to her sister. When Covid-19 hit Joan did her North Route and also took over The Southcoast Collaborative School’s route. This meant Joan delivered 5 days a week. Sometimes she delivered both North and South Rehoboth routes in the same day. Joan would pack up eggs from her neighbor and deliver the eggs with meals. Joan would pass out candy treats, hats for winter, loaves of bread, potted flowers, Thanksgiving meals, etc. Joan has also created a Little Free Library at her home for all to use.
