Mayor Joy Day, City of Jonesboro and Mayor Linda Lord, City of Forest Park signed national service proclamations for the Mayor’s Day of Recognition for National Service to recognize Clayton State volunteers’ contributions to the local community. AmeriCorps members were recognized at the Forest Park City Council meeting held on April 1, 2013.
