City’s volunteers, like stars, too many to count

Posted: Friday, Feb 22nd, 2013

Florence Mayor Nola Xavier introduces 2013 Volunteer of the Year Hal Weiner.

The City of Florence extended an all-encompassing expression of thanks Thursday night to the dozens of volunteers who work to support city staff and elected officials in running a city of 8,000-plus citizens and its slate of services and amenities.

At the second annual Volunteer Appreciation Night Feb. 21, Mayor Nola Xavier and City Recorder Kelli Weese recognized local residents who have committed time to the Florence Events Center, the Urban Renewal Agency, local police reserves and auxiliary, budget and audit committees, the Senior Center, Planning Commission, Environ-mental Management Advisory Committee and the Airport Volunteer Group, which was by far the best represented committee at the evening gathering.

“I thought I’d try to make a list of all the people who help guide this city,” said Mayor Xavier, but “it was impossible.”
