Thank You for City Volunteers and Donations

I am humbled by the great generousity and giving nature of the citizens of this community.  So far this year the outpouring of giving of time, talent, and money is absolutely amazing!

There has been so much done by volunteers, I'm sure I will not capture all of it.  Below is a partial list.  Also, a one line entry is certainly not a complete description of all the work or value that went into each of these items.  For anyone who is not mentioned below, please forgive.
