Applause for our volunteers

Last night was the annual Volunteer Recognition Reception to honor the residents who devote time to supporting the Town and its programs and activities. It’s part of National Volunteer Week which was started in 1974 to celebrate all that volunteers do to improve communities throughout the nation. In Los Gatos, we have more than 600 adults and youth who last year donated about 45,000 hours of time and talent to the town. They do everything from reading to kids in the library … to stuffing envelopes … to serving as reserve police officers … to helping with events like July 4th and Screen on the Green. Their contributions have an estimated value of more than $1 million! Wow.
