Urbanna Oyster Festival Queen contestant helps RISP children
Felicia Marsh volunteered with the Rural Infant Services Program (RISP), which helps children from birth through age 3 who may have developmental delays. “It was a pleasure volunteering with the RISP program because I was able to work with the children one-on-one. I felt just like their best friend.”
