At East Cooper Meals on Wheels our recipients are some of the most interesting people you may ever have the pleasure of meeting. Take Mr. Bill Oldland, for example. He was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1927. Mr. Oldland and his wife, Joan, met when she was just 16 years old. He was 21 years old at the time. Mr. Oldland vividly remembers how they first began dating. Joan was dating a boy named Billy at the time and Billy’s family had just bought the first television set in the neighborhood. Many of the neighborhood children were down at Billy’s house watching the television, but Joan wasn’t interested in the television. Mr. Oldland remembers seeing Joan sitting on her front stoop, upset. He asked her what was wrong and she told him that she and Billy were over because he would rather watch the television set than spend time with her. Mr. Oldland said he remembers asking her very politely, “well, if it’s alright with you, would it be OK if maybe I took you out to see a movie sometime.” She of course said yes and that’s where their story begins.
