Make becoming a RSVP volunteer your New Year's resolution

MERIDIAN — As the new year begins, I feel so blessed to have a job that I love going to every day.  

    Our RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program ) volunteers are such a warm and loving group of individuals and so giving of their time that I feel fortunate to have them as friends. We are actively recruiting as the need for volunteers in our community grows. If you think you would be interested in becoming a volunteer, please stop by our office or call to learn more about our program.

 

Volunteer of

the Month

    Mary Brown is our RSVP Volunteer of the Month for January. Mary has been a valued asset to our organization since November 2009, assisting the United Way of East Mississippi, Boy Scouts and at the RSVP office.

    On Jan. 31, RSVP will again be collaborating with AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) to offer the AARP Driver Safety Class to save individuals money on their auto insurance. Class is scheduled from noon-4:30 p.m. The cost is $14 ($12 for AARP members) for class materials and certification, payable on the day of the class in cash or by check to AARP.

Tax preparation

assistance

    Volunteers with the AARP Tax-Aide Assistance and Preparation Service and RSVP volunteers have their tax forms ready and computers turned on – all in preparation to begin e-filing 2012 returns.

Mississippi could borrow $20 million to help Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. update its factory in Tupelo. In return the company would pledge to maintain at least 1,300 jobs and invest $140 million in the plant. Do you think this is a good investment on the state's part?
