OSAGE | RSVP, the Retired Senior Volunteer Program for people 55 and older, is looking for volunteers to meet community needs in Mitchell County.
An informational open house to explore volunteer opportunities through RSVP is being held from 10-11:30 a.m., on Thursday, Aug. 9, in the NIACC Community Education Center, Osage Public Library, 406 Main Street, Osage. Anyone age 55 and older is welcome to attend.

The opportunities in Mitchell County include:
Reading Buddy volunteers help elementary-school students who need extra one-one-one attention to improve their reading skills.
