Volunteers to be honored at 5:30 p.m. Thursday on south side Fayetteville square

Fayetteville to Celebrate Community Volunteers September 2
The City of Fayetteville will be celebrating and thanking community volunteers this coming Thursday, September 2, from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on the south side of the Old Post Office on the Downtown Fayetteville Square.  
Everyone is invited to take part in the festivities.  It doesn't matter if you wor with volunteers, volunteer yourself, live in Fayetteville or not. Everyone is invited and encouraged to come on out and celebrate the volunteer spirit in Fayetteville. 
This event is part of the growing volunteer program at the City and being held to recognize the community’s tremendous volunteer spirit.  Fayetteville was recognized as a Volunteer Community of the Year in 2009, and the City of Fayetteville wishes to publically thank and celebrate the volunteers and their important contributions to community.
 Mayor Lioneld Jordan will be kicking off the celebration by proclaiming September 2010 “Volunteer Month” in Fayetteville.  Local organizations will be providing refreshments and other tokens of their appreciation to all our community volunteers. There will also be an area for sidewalk chalk art for the kids! Free parking is available in the Town Center Parking Garage in addition to the downtown area single meters, which are free after 5 p.m.  If there is bad weather, the festivities will be held at the Town Center - Dogwood room.
 The City of Fayetteville relies a great deal on volunteers for many of our programs. Beyond that, volunteers throughout the community impact all of our lives in some way - either through direct service or indirect service.  Volunteers clean our community, better our environment, plant gardens, take care of our pets, educate and care for our children, and they help the sick, elderly, and all those in need. Volunteers raise awareness, raise spirits, and raise funds for disabilities, illness and numerous community needs.
