This is a day to recognize the importance of volunteerism and lead a day of service. On Tuesday, Liberty Lake Mayor Steve Peterson and more than 60 volunteers joined us as Spokane observed the Mayor and County Recognition Day for National Service.
We gathered together to clean up in High Bridge Park and at the trailhead for Fish Lake Trail nearby, joined also by representatives from Spokane County United Way and Corporation for National and Community Service volunteers. Today continued the amazing events happening in April for Spokane Gives Month, but Tuesday’s volunteer project goes beyond Spokane. We join mayors, cities, and towns all across the nation to recognize the importance of volunteerism, the importance of service to our communities and neighbors, and particularly, the importance of the service provided by volunteers associated with the Corporation for National and Community Service.
I have proclaimed April 5 as the Mayor’s Day of Recognition for National Service in Spokane, but volunteerism and service is important year-round. Even if you weren’t able to participate today, I encourage you to sign up for other Spokane Gives Month volunteer month events. Visit VolunteerSpokane.org, and you will be able to find a project that matches your passion and talents to a real need in Spokane.
Thank you to all volunteers for your service and your commitment to community! Let’s keep this Spokane Gives momentum going all month, and all year!
