Mayor proclaims April 5th as National Service Recognition Day

Mayor Don Keil joined more than 3,000 county officials and mayors across the country in a nationwide bipartisan initiative to highlight the impact of national service in tackling local problems.

“National service is a vital resource for our county/city,” said Mayor Keil. “AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers make our counties better places to live.”

Mayor Keil signed a proclamation Thursday afternoon proclaiming April 5th National Service Recognition Day in the City of Seguin.

The Mayor and County Day of Recognition for National Service is a nationwide bipartisan effort to recognize the positive impact of national service in counties, to thank those who serve, and to encourage citizens to give back to their communities. The day is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties, , and Cities of Service.
