RSVP Volunteer Recognition Details

Each year RSVP of Lake County celebrates the accomplishments of RSVP volunteers and the RSVP Program by hosting a volunteer recognition event in September.

Every member of RSVP is invited to attend. Many of the volunteer station coordinators and public and private officials attend this event and give thanks to the many hours the volunteers contribute.

RSVP members who achieve 20 hours of volunteer service within the RSVP volunteer year (July 1 – June 30) are invited to attend the event free of charge. If a volunteer has not accrued 20 hours of service, then they are asked to pay to attend. Any non-RSVP guest is also required to pay to attend.

Invitations are sent in mid-August and include a return reservation form. After RSVP receives the reservation form, the volunteer is sent a confirmation postcard which is required at the door the day of the event as an entrance ticket.

Each year over 500 people attend the RSVP Volunteer Recognition Event. There is musical entertainment, special awards and door prizes.

Also with the invitation to Recognition, each volunteer is given notice of any hourly or yearly awards they may be eligible to receive.
