Linn-Mar Celebrates National Volunteer Week
In 1974, former President Richard Nixon issued the first-ever proclamation for National Volunteer Week with the following words: “I urge all Americans to observe the week by seeking out an area of their community in which they can give to a needy individual or a worthy cause by devoting a few hours, or more, each week to volunteer services.” It is with this spirit that we, the Linn-Mar Board of Education, issue the following proclamation:
Whereas, the Linn-Mar Community School District has a volunteer program in place that allows friends, family, and community members to volunteer their time and talents to our students;
And whereas, our students, staff, and administrators are grateful for the hundreds of hours our volunteers share with the district;
Now, therefore, the Linn-Mar Board of Education does hereby designate the week of April 15-21, 2018, as Volunteer Week as a way of showing our thanks to the volunteers that selflessly give of their time and talents to serve the Linn-Mar Community School District.
We call upon the Linn-Mar students and staff to recognize our volunteers by observing them in special ways throughout the week to honor all that they give to the district.
