The Action Plan, which will cover the period of Oct. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2026, is being done by Dr. Lori Teragawachi, who has been contracted by MEO.“MEO’s mission is to ‘strengthen the community while helping people in need restore their hope, reach their potential and enrich their lives,’ ’’ said Cabebe. “Please be our partner in helping our neighbors in need.”A copy of the survey may be downloaded at bit.ly/3lE2yUH,filled out and emailed to lee.imada@meoinc.org or mailed to P.O.
