Volunteers, like the gals who organize the day-old bread distribution, play an important role in the daily operations of Rambling River Center. Coordinator Missie Kohlbeck says she couldn't run the senior center without the help of volunteers.

Q and A: Rambling River Center depends on its volunteers


April is Volunteer Recognition Month, but Farmington's Rambling River Center coordinator Missie Kohlbeck is thankful for her many volunteers every day. In 2011, 108 people volunteered 4,601 hours to the community's senior center.

Rambling River Center will host a volunteer recognition celebration April 19 to say thank you to all of those who helped in the last year. This week, Kohlbeck talked about how much she appreciates the work they do.
