Volunteer Appreciation Day 2011

Last Thursday night, First Lady Dianne Bentley traveled to the Workplay Theater in Birmingham to honor first responders and volunteers who helped with the recovery from the April 27th tornadoes. This large crowd represented the thousands of others that were involved and the thousands more that will continue to help in the long term recovery process.
The First Lady and Governor are proud to represent such a wonderful state filled with passionate people devoted to service. Mrs. Bentley took time to share her own personal stories of tragedy and triumph surrounding the disaster. She concluded by relaying her gratitude for the hard work and dedication of all volunteers that aided in the disaster recovery process.
