RTBS to Host Volunteer Appreciation Event
Radio Talking Book Service (www.RTBS.org) volunteers are the best! On Wednesday, June 27, Radio Talking Book Service (RTBS) will host a luncheon to thank their volunteers – the dedicated and passionate people who bring the printed word to life for RTBS listeners! The annual Volunteer Appreciation Event will be held at the Immanuel Conference Center, where volunteers who read live, record in studio, or assist with administrative tasks will be honored with an afternoon of entertainment, door prizes, and refreshments.
Betty Deepe, RTBS’s new volunteer coordinator, commented, “Over the past four months, I’ve been overwhelmingly impressed by the longevity and commitment to service of our volunteers. They come in week after week…some, year after year…and make it happen. They make my job TOO easy!”
