The Heartland Retired and Senior Volunteer Program will be celebrating 35 years of service in Kirksville and the surrounding communities this year. A 40th Annual RSVP Recognition Banquet will be held a week from tomorrow at the Moose Lodge in Kirksville. Lunch will begin at 11:00am, followed by the welcome delivered by State Representative Nate Walker. Recognition will be given to Heartland Retired and Senior Volunteer Program volunteers for their years and hours of service. Persons and businesses giving support to the program during the past year will also be recognized. The event is open to everyone, but reservations need to be made right away at the RSVP office, upstairs in Bank Midwest. Tickets are free to all active RSVP volunteers. For all others the cost is $9.00 in advance or $10.00 at the door.
