Ms. Betty Bryant started working as an RSVP Volunteer at the Griffin Manor Senior Center in Elizabethtown on October 1, 2020. The Senior Center is closed due to Covid-19 but Ms. Bryant helps Ida Kyle, the Senior Center Coordinator, plate the food and serve to the seniors via a drive through Monday through Friday. She often refers to herself as “the bread lady” as she places the bread in sandwich bags each day.

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

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

Ms. Bryant’s positive attitude is contagious and she is a joy to be around! If you would like to become a volunteer like Ms. Betty Bryant, please contact Melissa Bland at 270-737-1059 or e-mail her at RSVP.Director@ckcac.org.
