Retired/Senior Volunteer Program

2019 RSVP Volunteer Appreciation Event:
An Afternoon at the Garden

Two thousand and nineteen is the year of the honoree! At this year’s RSVP Appreciation Event, held on May 22, 2019, 10 volunteers were honored for their length of service: Sharon Bouche, Darlene Charneski, Jim Seiler and Pat Seiler – 15 years; Barb Beaver, Dan Bertrand, Linda Bertrand, Marcie Kramer and Bob Schulze – 20 years; Betty Scully – 25 years. Each volunteer contributes differently in our community, and we appreciate their time and talents! Besides honoring our volunteers, attendees listened to speaker Mark Konlock of the Green Bay Botanical Garden. Mark shared information on the butterfly exhibit, which opened June 1.
