Elk River Mayor John Dietz volunteered Tuesday as part of the Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service.
He delivered Meals on Wheels with volunteer Louisette Guimont.
Dietz said the day is to honor all of the Elk River citizens who volunteer their time to make the city a better place for everyone.
“Our city slogan is ‘Powered by Nature,’” Dietz said. “For me, one of the meanings of that tagline is the caring nature of the people of Elk River. We have so many organizations that use volunteers. There are always people willing to step up and help.”
He thanked people who volunteer and said he sincerely appreciates whtat they do for the community.
The Elk River City Council had earlier voted to proclaim April 1 as National Service Recognition Day.
