Midlothian Mayor Boyce Whatley loaded up Tuesday morning at the senior center to participate in the 2011 Mayors for Meals. The Meals-on-Wheels annual event calls on local mayors and elected officials to deliver to the homebound in the community. “I am happy to represent Midlothian in the efforts to deliver to those in need in our community,” Whatley said. “It’s an excellent program providing for the needs of our seniors.” Shown are Mayor Whatley (center) with Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties volunteers Sheila Whatley (left) and Paula Baucum.
