WASHINGTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A local philanthropy group has awarded a grant to a Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) in Daviess County.

RSVP received the grant through Our Community Foundation’s $250 mini-grant program.

The grant will help RSVP manage the 2023 Yarn Art in the Park Event.

Program members will collect artwork, tell stories, hang the artwork, and manage the outdoor display.

Our Community Foundation was approached Aug. 15 by RSVP as well as organizers from the 2022 Yarn Art in the Park, about the long list of arts and cultural benefits of the event.

RSVP Executive Director Kim Herbertz said the organization anticipates the event to be even larger.

“We have received very positive feedback and we expect even more participation now that people are familiar with it,” Herbertz said.
