Rita Peterson was invited to become a board member of the Seniors’ Resource Center in November 1982. As a stay at home mom, she was very active with her three children’s activities all of which led to a number of leadership volunteer opportunities.
She served on the County, State, and Division boards of the American Cancer Society, Rita also volunteered at Children’s Hospital, and had been very active in Jefferson County Republican politics. Rita and her husband are the owners of an Appraisal Company in Lakewood.
Rita’s involvement with the Seniors’ Resource Center has been a very rewarding. The mission of the organization and the dedicated staff make the experience very worthwhile.
