2019 RSVP Volunteer Recognition Picnic

No comments

RSVP honored its volunteers on Tuesday at the beautiful Burke Lake Park where RSVP held its annual Volunteer Recognition event.

Thirty volunteers who donated a grand total of 4,000 hours of their time and talents over the past 12 months were recognized with The President’s Volunteer Service Award.

Congratulations to all of our President’s Volunteer Service Award honorees and thank you to all of our incredible volunteers who volunteer all year long to make Northern Virginia a better place.

RSVP would like to thank all the volunteers who helped put this event together and made it a success. A special thanks also goes out to the staff of Burke Lake Park who went out of its way to make sure the day (which included a pontoon boat tour of the lake) went smoothly.

Below you will see a gallery of photos by RSVP volunteer Ron Staley and RSVP outreach specialist Rob Paine showcasing the sites and events (including the awards luncheon) seen during the big event Tuesday.

Volunteer Fairfax CEO Steve Mutty handed out the President’s Volunteer Service Award certificates to the award winners who attended the picnic. Steve also shared some of his culinary expertise with our volunteers.

Keith O’Connor, park manager at Burke Lake, spoke about the great volunteer opportunities available at Burke Lake. If you are interested in volunteer at the park, please contact Rob at RSVP at 703-403-5360.
