Jane Pinette, Aroostook Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), Caribou Area Volunteer Coordinator with Jim Risner, Rotarian Program Host. 

Jane Pinette, Aroostook Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), Caribou Area Volunteer Coordinator was the guest speaker at a recent weekly meeting.  Aroostook RSVP, initiated in 1974, has partnered with over 100 nonprofit agencies and public organizations throughout The County to place volunteers, who are 55 and older, in over 160 rewarding and fulfilling volunteer service opportunities.  Jane and Aroostook RSVP are seeking volunteers for the Fort Fairfield area.  There is a need for volunteers in providing medical transportation, "friendly visiting" (visiting home-bound individuals in Fort Fairfield), a substitute Bone Builders teacher, and knitting/crocheting volunteers (yarn provided).  Some of the great benefits of being an Aroostook RSVP volunteer are the feelings of self pride and community involvement!!  Accident, liability, and car insurance are provided while on assignment. The Aroostook RSVP operates under the auspices of the Aroostook Agency on Aging. Additional information on RSVP and other agency activities may be found on the agency website: http://www.aroostookaging.org/index.html, and you’ll want to contact Jane at her home office to discuss RSVP possibilities: 207-492-2146.
