Directors and volunteers from Overton County Retired Senior Volunteer Program and Foster Grandparent Program celebrated National Day of Service 9-11 Friday, Sept. 20 at the Monroe Senior Center. The programs acknowledged Police and Sheriff’s departments, highway workers, and other members who provide services to Overton County.

RSVP volunteers provide entertainment for those in nursing homes, meals and transportation, companionship by calling-on and visiting shut-in’s, and solutions for other needs of our senior citizens. The Foster Grandparent Program works with children with exceptional needs with one-on-one aid.
