AmeriCorps week across the country kicked off officially this past Sunday, March 13th. Here in Fairbanks, we opened the celebrations with the swearing in of two new VISTA cohort members, along with the City's new Chief of Staff. He will be performing a service project this coming Thursday morning with the new VISTA members at the Fairbanks Children's Museum.
To honor all of the service VISTA members provide here in the Golden Heart city, please watch the first of several videos from each cohort member. These are self-made, all on cell phones, and capture the unrehearsed energy they bring to their respective service sites every day. I am thankful for all they do (and just a wee bit proud!).
