Volunteerism: Alive and Well in Vienna

Originally published 4/14/15

Community spirit and volunteerism is alive and well, as evidenced by the nomination of 35 individuals for exceptional contributions to the Town.

The Awards ceremony, conducted by Mayor DiRocco, played to a full house at the Flame Room of the Volunteer Fire Department. Music was supplied in the form of some very catchy percussion work by the Vienna Elementary School Jammers.

The fact is that we are surrounded in Vienna by lots and lots of community-minded folk that give a lot of their time without expectation of recognition. The Mayor’s Reception is to remind us all that volunteerism is a fundamental part of our traditions, and that the community benefits greatly by their contributions.
