On April 2, Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri and County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. will join more than 2,276 city and county leaders across the country in a day of recognition to highlight the impact of AmeriCorps and SeniorCorps on our community.
Mayor Palmieri and County Executive Picente will participate in the National Service Recognition Day by presenting AmeriCorps, Senior Corps and other volunteers serving in the City of Utica with a proclamation for the work that they do. These volunteers provide vital support to residents by assisting veterans, youth and seniors and on this day they will be thanked for their efforts.
The nation’s counties and cities are increasingly turning to national service and volunteerism as a cost-effective strategy to address challenges in a cost-effective manner. The activities in Oneida County are part of a national bipartisan effort to recognize the positive impact of national service, thank those who serve, and to encourage citizens to give back.
