Mayor Craig Peterson of Logan City gave a keynote speech outlining the important role played by volunteers in Cache Valley’s schools and Mayors Joseph Hanson of Cornish and James Brackner of River Heights also attended in a show of support. VISTA Members each gave a brief overview of their nominated volunteers’ accomplishments and personally thanked them for their service. Representatives from local Senior Corps and Conservation Corps chapters were also involved in event planning; we hope to continue collaboration of our organizations in the future.
We are very thankful for all of the time and effort invested by each of our dedicated volunteers across the valley. This event was a way to express our gratitude for them and show them the how just how much they are appreciated by the community. Without the hard work of our volunteers, many of our VISTA projects wouldn't be possible!
Refreshments were graciously provided by Subway restaurants and Macey’s grocery stores and floral arrangements were donated by Smith’s Marketplace.
