Meridian, Miss. The Retired Senior Volunteer Program honored volunteers with a luncheon in Meridian Thursday.
People from over 30 organizations attended the event at the Frank Cochran Center and enjoyed an afternoon of live entertainment. Forty door prizes were given away.
The director of the program, Diana Glover, says these volunteers deserve to be recognized.
"These people work all year for this community, and they don't expect anything back for it, so we want to give them something back," said Glover.
Glover says the people recognized are the backbone of the community and they make the community a lot stronger than it would be without them.
