RSVP thanks local business

High Country RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) would like to thank the local businesses who generously donated funds and gift certificates for our annual Volunteer Appreciation Banquet on Oct. 18, 2014 at the Aspen Glen Club. The generosity and support of the following businesses for RSVP volunteers is greatly appreciated: Base Camp Café, Chili’s, City Market, Elk Creek Bar and Grill, Farm Fresh Cafe, Fiesta Guadalajara, Glenwood Canyon Brew Pub, Glenwood Caverns, Glenwood Sewing Center, Hotel Colorado, Italian Underground, Juicy Lucy’s Steakhouse, Lazy Bear Restaurant, Mi Casita, Miner’s Claim, New Castle Diner, Rifle Movie Theater, Shanghai Gardens, Shooter’s Grill, Sunlight Mountain Ski and Bike Shop, Target, Tractor Supply, Village Inn, Valley View Hospital Gift Shop, White House Pizza, Zheng’s Asian Bistro, US Bank and Bank of Colorado.

Retired Senior Volunteers donated 29,000 hours of volunteer service to residents of Garfield County last year. These amazing volunteers helped seniors with their Medicare, filed their taxes, provided minor home repairs, taught Driver Safety Classes, mentored youth, cared for abandoned pets, served senior meals, delivered Meals on Wheels and much, much more.

A huge “thank you!” to these businesses and all RSVP volunteers — you are what make Garfield County such a great place to live, volunteer and play!
