The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance’s largest volunteer effort is Riverfest, held in Narrowsburg each July.
Narrowsburg, NY – Sullivan County’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is excited to announce a new volunteer station in southwestern Sullivan County: the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) in Narrowsburg.
“RSVP hasn’t added a volunteer station in that part of the County for many years, so I’m delighted we’ve worked out an agreement with the DVAA that expands on both our missions,” noted RSVP Coordinator Martha Tully.
“We’re eager to welcome new volunteers,” affirmed DVAA Executive Director Ariel Shanberg. “They’ll find a vibrant nonprofit with many interesting and enjoyable activities throughout the year, oftentimes a performance, exhibit opening or fundraiser that they can attend at no cost.”
The DVAA is now one of 48 volunteer stations across Sullivan County, each of which offer RSVP participants unique ways to help improve the communities they serve. Other sites include:
- The Sullivan County Historical Society, Hurleyville

“RSVP exists to share – to share our lives and skills with one another, to share in the work that wouldn’t be done without our involvement, to share in the joy that comes from giving back to your community,” Tully explained. “I invite and encourage anyone 55 years old or above to reach out and share their time, knowledge, and life skills with us. Join us in making our community a better place!”
