RSVP's honored at luncheon

November 8, 2012

Little Dixie Community Action Agency, Inc. hosted a luncheon on Friday, November 2nd, to honor many Pushmataha County residents who participate in the agency’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program. Little Dixie’s Executive Director, Brenda Needham, said: “This annual event is the least we can do to recognize these men and women volunteers who give so freely of their time to provide valuable services to their communities. Without them, it would be difficult if not impossible for many organizations to remain in operation. These volunteers make it possible for residents and others to enjoy many places including nutrition centers, libraries, museums, gift shops, food banks and much more. This kind of community dedication and loyalty is what makes Southeast Oklahoma a great place to live.” event featuring “A Blast from the Past” theme complete with life sized cardboard cut-outs of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Elvis Presley certainly resonated with many of the guests of honor. Volunteers enjoyed a barbecue chicken lunch with a variety of side dishes prepared by RSVP staff. Each volunteer also received Recognition Citations from Senator Jerry Ellis and Representative R.C. Pruett. Other “perks” included door prizes donated by many local businesses. The event was well attended and included dignitaries, Senator Jerry Ellis, Representative R.C. Pruett, Little Dixie Board Members: Mike Brittingham (Pushmataha County Commissioner) and Chuck Darby (Chair of the RSVP Advisory Committee), and most importantly, approximately 50 Pushmataha County Senior Volunteers. RSVP Program Director, Barbara Moffitt spoke at the event, expressing her gratitude for all the volunteers. She stated: “I have the greatest job in the world that allows me to work with the most caring individuals. They set an example for all of us. I can’t say enough to express how valuable you are, not only to me and the Little Dixie RSVP Program, but also to your communities.” A similar event was held in Choctaw County the week before and the McCurtain County recognition is scheduled for the ninth of November.
