Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today proclaimed Saturday, September 29, 2012 as the Governor's Day to Serve-a day dedicated to strengthening local communities through volunteer service. Community organizations, faith-based organizations, civic and humanitarian groups along with governmental agencies are encouraged to participate in the day of service.
"West Virginians are known for their kindness, compassion and neighborly spirit," said Gov. Tomblin. "I encourage folks to mark their calendars for our statewide day of service and to begin planning ways to help in their local communities. September 29th will be great day-through our collective efforts, we will foster friendships, beautify our communities and lift spirits."
Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia will also designate September 29th as a day of service. For more information on volunteering or organizing a volunteer event in West Virginia, please visit our website: www.governor.wv.gov.
