Have a rockin' retirement, don't rock through it!

December 5, 2006

Albany - Just because you retire, doesn't mean you want to spend all day in a rocking chair. More than 600 retired and senior citizens in the Albany area, volunteer. They knit blankets, and caps for babies at area hospitals and even build ramps for disabled people in the community, including Iraq veterans.

On Tuesday those volunteers were recognized for their service in the retired and senior volunteer program. RSVP Director Anne Bragg says, "It helps get older people, people 55 and older involved in the community. Not to sit home and rock all the time and they love to work. They love to do things that help other people. A lot of them say, I'm just giving back to the community what they've given."

The RSVP program is part of SOWEGA counsel on aging. That's who you should contact if you would like to get involved.
