Alameda Friendly Visitors

Wallace Johnson, a test pilot on NASA’s Apollo Program, and current recipient of Meals on Wheels and Alameda Friendly Visitors (AFV), enjoyed a special visit from Rich LaRocca and Meals on Wheels volunteer Art Lenhardt. When Lenhardt discovered that former classmate, LaRocca, had worked on all the Apollo antennas, he thought he might be interested in meeting “Wally.” 

Alameda Friendly Visitors, a companion program to Alameda Meals on Wheels, is in need of volunteers to spend one hour a week to visit someone in need of companionship. To learn more about the program and to sign up as a friendly visitor volunteer, contact Joyce Leighton at or call 748-0342.
