City shows support for national service

Published 9:45 am Wednesday, March 26, 2014

On March 24, Albert Lea Mayor Pro Tempore Larry Baker read the proclamation declaring

“Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service.” On behalf of Senior Resources, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, I would like to thank Mr. Baker and the city of Albert Lea for recognizing the value of volunteerism in our community.

Part of the proclamation states the following: “Whereas, the Corporation for National and Community Service shares a priority with mayors nationwide to engage citizens, improve lives and strengthen communities; and is joining with the National League of Cities, City of Service and mayors across the county to recognize the impact of service on the Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service on April 1, 2014.”

There are hundreds of volunteers in Freeborn County who work behind the scenes dedicated to improving, strengthening and impacting the lives of our communities.

A grateful thank-you to the mayor pro tempore and the city of Albert Lea for partnering with Senior Resources, RSVP, in acknowledging the value of volunteers.
