Mayor's Proclamation for Volunteer Appreciation Week:
Whereas, volunteering of an individual’s time and resources is an essential part of the American spirit; and
Whereas, it is even more in evidence that Burleson’s greatest natural resource is its people; and
Whereas, volunteers show every day through their actions that they truly care about their communities and the people who live in them; and
Whereas, the voluntary sector is increasingly recognized as the third partner with government and business in building strong communities; and
Whereas, we continue to rely on the efforts of volunteers to enrich our community, we call upon citizens to help renew and sustain the American spirit by committing themselves to address the needs of their communities through voluntary action.
