Bay Aging’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is seeking individuals to lend their time as volunteers in our Meals On Wheels program.

Bay Aging held a series of open house luncheons in December to both honor volunteers serving in the 2015, and introducing prospective volunteers to our program.

Using a LIFETIME of EXPERIENCE To Help Others

RSVP volunteers use their life and job skills to strengthen their communities.

Bay Aging was one of six organizations from the Northern Neck doing important work for the community that were honored

The other five organizations receiving awards were the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department, The Haven Shelter & Services, Inc., Veterans Outreach Group (VOG), Northern Neck Free Health Clinic, and Hospice of the Northern Neck.

A primary mission of the Ladies of St. Paul’s is to raise funds to provide donations to worthy charities that directly impact the Northern Neck. The funds are raised through an annual spaghetti dinner held on the first Friday of August. This year St. Paul’s held its 37th spaghetti dinner, which raised $500 for each organization.
