Bill and Pat Trout were the recipients of the 2017 Medical Lake Kiwanis Club Senior Citizen Volunteer-of-the-Year.

The award was presented to the 40-year residents of Medical Lake at the annual Kiwanis Valentine's Day dinner held at Saint Anne's Catholic Church on Feb. 10.

The couple coordinate the purchase of items for the senior meals program, held weekly, each Thursday at St. John's Lutheran Church.

Bill Trout and other volunteers prepare approximately 80 meals for individuals attending, and take-out meals for those who cannot attend in person. The couple recognizes the meals program would not happen without the assistance of all of the volunteers.

The Trouts understand senior meals is not only about the food, it is a social event for the attendees. They see friends and if someone doesn't attend they make sure to check on them. New individuals to town are warmly welcomed to the community.

"The Trouts have prepared over 25,000 meals for the program over the last nine years," a Medical Lake Kiwanis news release said. "The Kiwanis Club and fellow residents are proud to call the Trouts friends and neighbors."

Bill Trout is also a member of the Medical Lake Lions Club, presently serving as the treasurer as well as the chairman of the sight and hearing committee.
