To compliment National Service Recognition Day, the City also participated in Mayor's Appreciation Day, where Mayor Kristine Lott joined ECO AmeriCorps and the Lake Champlain Committee for "April Stool's Day" - an annual event where service members coordinate clean-ups of public parks removing dog waste and trash from local trails and walkways before spring runoff. The event's goal is to improve water quality in the Lake Champlain watershed as well as highlight the service provided by AmeriCorps members all over Vermont.
We'd also like to thank our Vermont Youth AmeriCorps members Oliva Miller and Sarah Franco for their continued commitment to Winooski! Their service provides the City with vital opportunities for volunteer engagement and programming through our Community Services Department.
