On Thursday, August 14, 2014, the Camden County Senior Day Center located in Blackwood, NJ, hosted a grand celebration in honor of Ms. Geneva Wilson who celebrated her 100th birthday! Ms. Wilson was presented with a host of lovely gifts from the Senior Day Center staff, participants, and RSVP.
Also in attendance was the RSVP Volunteer Coordinator, Terryama Davis, who presented Ms. Wilson with a beautiful birthday cake, donated and prepared by Lourdes Vasquez of the Camden County Chapter of Birthday Cakes 4 Free, along with a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of her continued volunteer service and commitment to her community.
A great time was had by all who attended, especially Ms. Wilson.
On Friday, August 15, 2014, Camden County RSVP volunteer Stephany Tate-Yancey conducted a Chair Yoga and Chair Zumba class at Bentley Senior Living, located in Pennsauken, NJ. 15 residents participated, as well as the RSVP Volunteer Coordinator, Terryama Davis. The residents really got involved and had a great time dancing in their chairs to music.
Stephany, a retired heath teacher, is actively involved in several health initiatives at RSVP and CPAC. The volunteers are encouraged to share their expertise and skills with other volunteers as well as partner organizations.
We are very proud of the work that our volunteers do and it is wonderful to see them sharing their skills and expertise with the community.
