On Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service, a roomful of enthusiastic RSVP volunteers, AmeriCorps and VISTA members join County Executive Ike Leggett (center) in a thumbs-up salute to the legions of local residents who help make local cities and Montgomery County better places in which to work and live. Among those present were: Gaithersburg Mayor Sidney Katz (second row to Leggett’s right), Rockville Mayor Bridget Newton (back row to Leggett’s right) and Dr. Edwin Tan, director of Senior Corps at the Corporation for National and Community Service (on Leggett’s left), plus representatives from area nonprofit organizations, County officials and commissioners from the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism.
