Comments from the audience...

Thank you so much for the wonderful celebration last Thursday. It is always nice for the work that we volunteer do be recognized, even if it is just with a thank you. As far as thank yous go, you have gone above and beyond. The concert was amazing and showed just how much you and the city of Plano in general care about the volunteer community. I hope to continue volunteering with you for a long time to come!

Once again, thank you,

Sarah Tarver, Facilities Volunteer and VIP  


I just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for a great city volunteer appreciation night.  The entertainment was the best.   Winning the Kindle Fire HD was overwhelming. 

Thanks again for all you do for the city volunteers in Plano.  You all rock!!!

Gloria Chick, Police Records Volunteer


 I am still talking about how great your event was.  I'm sure you've had many compliments. 

Jan Wardell, City Partner


I want to congratulate you for coordinating such a wonderful event last night. You and Corina really put together a fantastic party! The band was entertaining, the MC was engaging, the speeches were inspiring, the gifts were extraordinary and refreshments delicious.


I really enjoyed myself and feel confident all in attendance awoke this morning with fond memories of the event. Most importantly, you showered the city's army of committed volunteers with praise and recognition.


Thank you for making such an important milestone so memorable.
