Volunteers sought for elementary schools

The Washington County Commission on Aging is seeking volunteers to serve in elementary schools starting in January through its RSVP program.

RSVP is "An Invitation to Serve" for those 50 and older who want to help in local schools by tutoring, mentoring, doing clerical work or using special computer or library skills.

The program now has 20 volunteers in 11 schools under a partnership with the Washington County Board of Education.
