Radio Talking Book Service Honors Volunteers at Annual Event
On June 11th, Radio Talking Book Service (RTBS) (RTBS.org) will recognize volunteers at its annual Volunteer Appreciation Event held at the SAC Federal Credit Union’s corporate headquarters in Papillion. Volunteer readers, and those that assist with mailings and administrative tasks, will be honored with an afternoon of music, door prizes and refreshments. Volunteers will also be given Certificates of Appreciation for their passion and dedication to RTBS.
Sybil Mahan, long-time Volunteer Coordinator, said this about her volunteers, “We would not be able to bring local news and information to our listeners without our dedicated and loyal volunteers. They are welcome guests in the lives of the visually impaired who miss reading the local newspapers and magazines.”
Radio Talking Book Service, Nebraska’s Audio Companion, was founded in 1974 and brings the printed word to life for individuals who are blind, visually impaired, or have physical disabilities that prevent them from reading printed material. Radio Talking Book Network’s 24/7 programming includes 11 newspapers, 70+ magazines and books read by over 90 volunteers and is delivered to listeners via preprogramed radios, which are provided at no cost. Please call (402) 572-3003 or visit RTBS.org to listen live, volunteer, donate, or to apply for a radio from Radio Talking Book Service.
