Claire Gillis has been a member of the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) for eight years. She lends her time to a quilters’ group, the Betty Ehart Senior Center and the gift shop at the Los Alamos Medical Center.

“It gives me something to do, it gets me out with people and in return I’m do something good for others,” Gillis said.

To honor Gillis and other volunteers, a party was thrown at the Betty Ehart Senior Center Tuesday. The Los Alamos Big Band played music; tables were piled with edible goodies and cooler bags were distributed to the volunteers.

Irene Powell, RSVP director, said about 150 people attended the event. “We have a unique community of very highly motivated volunteers,” she said. “They are anxious to share their expertise and experience, and are even willing to have new challenges by learning new things.

“These people really care about helping people and helping their community,” she added.

RSVP member John Stewart assists in numerous ways in the area. He said he edits the senior center’s newsletter, serves on the Los Alamos Retired Senior Organization board, acts as treasurer of the Friends of the Senior Center and the Lab Retiree Group Inc.
