Fourth District Senior Resource Center partners with the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program

The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program is administered by the County of San Diego, Health & Human Services Agency, Aging & Independence Services, and its purpose is to find meaningful volunteer opportunities for adults age 55+.  The RSVP program held its annual volunteer recognition lunch for South County volunteers on May 31, 2023, at Rohr Park. Many 4th District Senior Resource Center volunteers attended and brought their smiles and amazing energy with them.  Medals and Distinguished Service certificates were awarded to the top 10 volunteers in the South Region with the most lifetime volunteer service hours at the end of 2022.  Rosemary Pope was honored for 19,179 hours, Ida Ford was honored for 10,226 hours, and Beverly Henry was honored for 6,389 hours.  Herbert Argrow was honored with a Dedicated Service award for his 24+ years of volunteer service. As a special treat, Carmelia “Toot” Bell, shared her amazing talent and entertained us by singing a few songs.  She was truly one of the highlights of the day!

“There’s always another battle to be won.”

The Old Globe CoLab (Community Collaboration) presented a new musical by Karen Ann Daniels, music by Brandon Cerquierdo and Karen Ann Daniels, directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, musical direction by Leonard Patton. As a child Ruby Bridges made history during the battle for school integration in 1960. But what value does it have for her and us 40 years later? Three performances were held at George L. Stevens Senior Center. Many audience members exclaimed afterward that they would like to see this wonderful, collaborative effort expanded to the stage at The Old Globe.
