AARP volunteer tax aides at the Senior Center annually help hundreds of people complete and file their returns accurately and on time. Two days a week, for three months, they navigate all the forms and files necessary to keep conscientious citizens on the right side of the IRS.
Numerous neighborhood associations and clubs, as well as several “Friends of ...” groups also showed their dedication to the city’s parks, playgrounds and programs.
To all of these entities and their members, participants and employees, we extend our deepest appreciation. If you know of any specific other that should be added to our list, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We’ll do our best to recognize them and their work on our Facebook page and Twitter.
We’d also like to recognize independent volunteers who do community service but are not necessarily associated with an agency, business, organization or other formal group. They’ve been invited to take a bow for their efforts at an informal volunteer appreciation gathering later this month. Instead of singling out anyone for special recognition, we want to try to make sure each and every volunteer knows how grateful we are for their work. As with groups, if we’ve overlooked any independent volunteers, please let us know so we can thank them. We want to do everything possible to make sure credit is given where it’s due.
Director of Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department
