Annual Event paired with Mayor’s Day of Recognition for National Service
NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The City of New Rochelle Office for the Aging honored seventy-five volunteers at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon held April 15 at the Hugh A. Doyle Senior Center. Honored at the event were members of Foster Grandparent and Meals on Wheels Programs, Montefiore Sound Shore Hospital Volunteer Program, and the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program (RSVP) of United Way of Westchester County.
“It was an honor to host this event,” said Phillis Maucieri, Executive Director of the Office for the Aging. “We salute all our senior volunteers in appreciation for giving back to the community they love.”
Mayor Bramson presented each volunteer with a letter of thanks and expressed his appreciation for their service. “These active seniors make a vital difference to our community and set a powerful example for people of every age. I am grateful for their dedication and commitment,” he said.
The luncheon coincided with the Mayor’s Day of Recognition for National Service. Mayor Bramson joined more than 1,750 mayors across the country in recognizing the impact of national service on city challenges. The Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service is a national bipartisan effort to recognize the positive impact of national service in cities, to thank those who serve; and to encourage citizens to give back to their communities. The Mayors Day of Recognition is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the National League of Cities, Cities of Service, and the U.S. Conference of Mayors President Michael Nutter.
