Mayor’s and County Day of Recognition of National Service

On Tuesday, April 7, 2015, Travis County Commissioner’s Court along with 2,630 mayors and county leaders across the country  united to thank AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers for their commitment to service and their positive impact on pressing challenges facing the nation.

Local elected officials from large cities, small towns, rural areas, and tribal communities across the nation are participating in the third annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service by holding events, issuing proclamations, joining service projects, and using social media to thank service participants.

The number of participating mayors and county leaders has more than tripled since the first recognition day in 2013. Altogether, the elected officials participating today represent more than 149 million Americans, nearly half the U.S. population.

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), which administers AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Social Innovation Fund, leads the Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service in partnership with the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties, and Cities of Service.

Thank you to our Senior Corps volunteers Graham Duncan and Don Saegert who represented our program and special thanks to Don who shared his story of volunteering for Drive A Senior.
