Mayor Martin makes ‘National Volunteer Week’ proclamation 

The City of Paso Robles honored its many volunteers in celebration of National Volunteer Week at the Tuesday, April 21, City Council meeting. In a proclamation that recognized city volunteers’ immense donation of time and talent, Mayor Steve Martin conveyed the city’s gratitude, noting that the professionalism and energy volunteers bring to public service not only strengthen the quality of today’s citizenry, they help position the city for the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.

National Volunteer Week began in 1974 when President Richard Nixon signed an executive order establishing the week as an annual celebration of volunteering. Since then, every U.S. President has signed a proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week.

Receiving the proclamation on behalf of all city volunteers were Mary Walters, a member of the Library Volunteer Program, and her husband, Jim, a member of the Community Volunteer Police Patrol. Both volunteered for many of the city’s anniversary events and both are volunteers for the Paso ArtsFest.
