Mayor takes time to recognize members in the community

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin took time out of his Tuesday to participate in the annual Mayors' Day of Recognition for National Service.

Volunteers of federal programs were given certificates of appreciation and a reception was held for them afterward.

Mayor Perrin said it's important to stop and thank the people who contribute to our community on a daily basis.

"I think that means a lot," Mayor Perrin said. "Just telling people thanks is one thing, but if they can hang something on their wall or remember us... I think it's a big part of their life."

Volunteers were recognized from VISTA, AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, Hispanic Community Center and the East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging.
