Mayors nationwide recognize national service
On April 9 the first ever Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service united 832 mayors from across the country to honor national service. Mayors from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico officially recognized the work that AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers are doing to make cities better and stronger. Together, these mayors represent nearly 100 million citizens, or nearly one-third of all Americans. Check out the Facebook gallery featuring photos from recognition events around the country, including mayors from Saint Paul , Duluth and Cedar Rapids, IA. An evening celebration of service was held at the Summit Brewing Co. in Saint Paul.
