The annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon for RSVP Volunteers and Senior Companion Volunteers was held in Elizabethtown on Thursday, October 26th . Approximately 50 volunteers attended.
Officer Chris Denham from the Elizabethtown Police Department was the guest speaker. He shared several examples of popular scams that often target seniors as well as the benefits of all the recent round-a-bouts in the Lincoln Trail Area. He also reminded everyone to hang up on anyone calling asking for your personal information, keep your car and house doors locked, and not to go out at night alone. He also suggested purchasing an inexpensive home security system.
The meal was served after Officer Denham answered numerous questions and 20 door prizes were presented to the winners. All the volunteers received appreciation gifts for their service.
RSVP needs additional volunteers. The only requirements are that you must be 55 or older and willing to volunteer in Hardin or Nelson County. Volunteers may receive up to $60 per month in mileage reimbursement driving to and from their volunteer work station.
