Take us, for example. Our name, location, and programs have significantly evolved to fit the modern needs of seniors. What began as the local RSVP station in 1972 has flourished in services and size.
Today, we offer a wide range of volunteer-based solutions. From help with grocery shopping (our Carry-Out Caravan) to coordinating reliable transportation for veterans’ doctors’ appointments with VetsGo. While our organization and community have certainly changed, the mission of our work is rooted in providing clients with essential services for health, safety, and friendship. This monumental anniversary could not have been achieved without the individuals who participated and volunteered over the past five decades.
We celebrate this special place we call home and commemorate the people who have cultivated a tradition of neighbors helping one another. Cheers to you, our volunteers, and participants, and here’s to another 50 years!
