The Oswego County Legislature's Human Services Committee recognized the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Oswego County for its continued fostering of civic engagement to improve citizens' lives and strengthen their communities. One of the nation's largest volunteer networks for people aged 55 and over, RSVP aims to encourage, develop and maintain volunteer opportunities that respond to the needs of the community. Here in Oswego County, hundreds of volunteers donate their time and skills to local organizations through tax aide preparation, driver safety course instruction, and senior care programs such as falls prevention, Osteo Bone Builders, and home-delivered meals for those who are home-bound. RSVP volunteers were recently recognized at Senior Corps for their commitment of more than 41,000 hours to 62 organizations throughout the county. Pictured from left are Committee Vice Chairman Tim Stahl, District 20; Thomas Drumm, District 16; Shane Broadwell, District 17; Committee Chairman Daniel LeClair, District 8; RSVP of Oswego County Director Meave Gillen; Pat Jones; RSVP Advisory Board Chairwoman Ellie Filburn; Marie C.
