Volunteers and coordinators of volunteer service organizations gathered in Council Chambers Tuesday as Mayor Steve Allender signed and presented a proclamation declaring April 4 as National Service Recognition Day in Rapid City.

Last year, in the Rapid City area, volunteer programs such as the Black Hills Foster Grandparent Program, Black Hills Senior Companion Program, Black Hills Retired Senior Volunteer Program+ (RSVP+) and AmeriCorps VISTA provided volunteer opportunities for over 700 citizens totaling approximately 180,500 hours of service to the community at large.

These volunteers share their time, talents, knowledge and years of experience at numerous work stations in the community, helping to make Rapid City's quality of life for all its citizens second to none.

Congratulations to all of Rapid City's volunteers!
