Get involved: Routt County volunteer opportunities

More than 25 people waved signs yesterday in support of Routt County’s seniors. Organized by Routt County Council on Aging (RCCOA), the Senior March promotes the Meals on Wheels program which provides homebound seniors with warm, nutritious meals for low-to-no-cost. RCCOA serves close to 3,000 meals on wheels annually. Many thanks to the Holy Name Preschool children who came to support their grandparents! Pictured is RCCOA President-Elect Jim McGee with the crowd.
