The Carson City part of the recognition will come at the Carson City Senior Center, 911 Beverly Way, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. that day, and the mayor will be joined by other speakers.

"National service is a vital resource for our city," Crowell said in a pre-event news release issued by city government. "AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers make our cities better places to live."
