The Marshall County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program:
RSVP Volunteers Win Presidential Award
The Marshall County RSVP held a volunteer appreciation brunch October 13, 2017 at the State Park Lodge. Although this event included local dignitaries, the VIPs of the event were the volunteers who selflessly give over 50 hours each in one year. They represent over a century of experience and education. No request or need is too small or too big for them to tackle. Their expertise ranges from technology, Reading Buddies, water watch, and tax serviceto music, art, and exercise.
Four RSVP volunteers received the President's Award for volunteering over 4,000 hours over a lifetime. Seven won the President's Gold Award for volunteering over 500 hours in one year. These are dedicated volunteers who are committed to their community.
