At Monday’s council meeting, Mayor Brett Barker read a proclamation affirming that Nevada will celebrate April 3 as a National Day of Service, and after the reading, the council paid tribute to a number of people who work with volunteer organizations in our community. Recognized Monday were (from left) Joan Mayfield and Kathy Marshall, both with the Foster Grandparent program in Nevada Schools; Marci Gallagher, an AmeriCorps Reading Corps volunteer; Anne Owens, director of the Volunteer Center of Story County; Kalen Petersen, director of Central Iowa’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program; Judy Craven, an RSVP volunteer with several programs in the Nevada Schools and community; Karen Selby, an RSVP volunteer with the Nevada Schools and Carla Potter, a volunteer with disaster training through RSVP.
