Public Service Recognition Week

In our community, and throughout the nation, local, state and federal government employees serve and protect us. Public servants deserve our appreciation daily, but Public Service Recognition Week, May 6-12, is a time set aside to honor our men and women in government.

Public service is a calling to serve one's fellow Americans. In Williamsburg, we have a vibrant community of local and state public servants, as well as federal, active and retired employees. Our local chapter of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) is filled with accomplished, career folks who answered this calling to serve.

Our diverse workforce at the federal, state and local levels consists of highly-talented individuals with a strong drive to improve the lives of the American people. They ensure a clean environment, safeguard the food we eat, protect our communities from violence, stabilize and grow the economy, come to our rescue after disasters and teach our children, to name a few ways public servants make our lives better.

So please take a moment this week to recognize the work of our public servants. If interested in joining NARFE, contact for more information.

Jeff Fratter, NARFE Chapter 685 President
Williamsburg, VA
