RSVP gets honor

A Decade Award was presented to Willsboro Central School in recognition of its 10-year partnership with RSVP.

A Special Award was presented to the Essex County Board of Supervisors for its support to RSVP.

Certificates and gifts were presented to RSVP volunteers Janice Allen of Willsboro, Joan Porter of Ticonderoga, Gladys Hayes of Essex, John Watson of Lake Placid, Barb Brassard and Janet Denney of Port Henry, AnnaBelle Waite of Moriah and Ruth McDonough of Port Henry.

A special gift was presented to Moriah's van driver, Pamela Yakalis.

Volunteers received many door prizes secured by the Community Advisory Group and friends of RSVP.

A dinner was catered by the Essex County Nutrition Program for the Elderly and served to the volunteers by students from Moriah Central School and friends of RSVP.

"RSVP is a community-based program where people help people of all ages through volunteerism, thereby, meeting basic human needs," McCaughin said. "This salute to the volunteers is a small reward for all that they do for their communities. Special thanks to everyone who helped make this day a success."
