NEMCSA September News 

This past week NEMCSA had the privileged of honoring over 100 Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) participants in both Grayling and Alpena. 

Pictured above are Edwin Olson, Shelley Tuuri, Irene Atkinson and Rith McEwen, a few of the presidential volunteers honored this week. 

One participant, Ann Doty (pictured below) was celebrating her 30 years of volunteerism! She likes to teach line dancing and said she volunteers because "Life is about interacting with people- and I enjoy people!" 

RSVP recruits seniors 55 and over to volunteer their time and share their life experiences, talents, and wisdom with member in our communities. RSVP is beneficial for the volunteer, too. In addition to decreasing social isolation, it’s been found that volunteering helps stave off mental disorders including depression and dementia. Volunteers have expressed to program staff that interacting with the children bring a lot of fun into their lives.
