Georgetown Village Wishes Safeway Bob a Happy Birthday

Local residents and long-standing Safeway customers are enjoying the innovative reorganization of our Georgetown Safeway. These are the members and volunteers of Georgetown Village, a 501c3 organization that enables seniors to stay in their homes as they age and also helps them stay socially and culturally active. These goals are accomplished by a corps of trained volunteers who perform a wide range of services for members; driving to doctors, social activities and shopping, helping with household tasks like changing light bulbs and putting up Christmas decorations, shoveling snow, walking dogs, organizing files and much more. Georgetown Village also arranges docent led tours of exhibitions, movie nights, book groups, visits to artists' studios, lectures, and many other programs that enrich our members’ lives.

Recently our volunteer who brings members to Safeway to shop each week was photographed with Bob, a long-time checker and a few of our members. They wanted to be sure to wish him a happy birthday as he always has a cheerful greeting for his customers – our members - who have known him so long.
