Melissa Bland, RSVP Director

Ms. Betty Bryant started working as a Volunteer for the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program (RSVP) at the Griffin Manor Senior Center in Elizabethtown in October 2020.

Betty helps Ida Kyle, the Senior Center Coordinator, plate the food and serve to the seniors 3 days a week. She often refers to herself as “the bread lady” as she places the bread in sandwich bags.

Betty was born and raised in Wilmington North Carolina but has lived in Kentucky for the last 40 years. Betty has two sons, 9 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

She worked at the Fort Knox Hospital as a desk clerk for 17 years and was also caregiver for a friend in her home for one year.

Betty enjoys genealogy, crocheting and embroidering. She volunteers as she loves people and likes to get of the house every day.

Betty’s positive attitude is contagious, and she is a joy to be around! Feel free to stop by the Senior Center to meet Betty and the other seniors!
