[April 06, 2013]  On Tuesday, Lincoln Mayor Keith Snyder will join volunteers and staff at the Community Action corporate headquarters to sign a proclamation naming April 9 as National Service Recognition Day. This signing is in conjunction with activities across the country to thank volunteers for all they do for our communities. Snyder will sign the proclamation between 1 and 1:30 p.m.

On this inaugural Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service, mayors across the country will participate in a variety of activities, including visiting national service programs, hosting round-table discussions, issuing proclamations and communicating about national service through social media. Participating in the day will highlight the importance of citizen service, show support for nonprofit and national service groups, recognize the role national service members play in focusing community volunteers, and inspire more residents to serve in their communities.
