Mayor Craig A. Moe is pleased to announce that a plaque honoring volunteers has now been placed at City Hall. This plaque honors those volunteers who have donated the most hours of service to the citizens of the City of Laurel for the past 3 years.
The top volunteer for the calendar year 2010 was Janet Parker, who donated her time at the Phelps Senior Center with 234 hours. The Honorable H. Edward (Eddie) Ricks had the most hours in 2009 with the Re-Hab/Canteen Unit of 276 hours. In 2008, there was a tie at 205 hours for Carol Bounds for her work with CERT and the Department of Public Works and Fern Clark who also volunteered at the Phelps Senior Center.
Mayor Moe recognizes the importance of volunteers in our community and encourages anyone who can donate time to find a volunteer activity that will make our City a better place to live and work.
