An impressive list of volunteers this month! Thank you for all your work on behalf of the travelers (and visitors!) at DCA!

For more than 50 years, a troupe of dedicated and tireless volunteers have given mightily of their time and talent to support the National Mall and Memorial Parks achieve its mission by keeping the park safe, educating others, and preserving it for future generations to enjoy. The participants in the Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program are truly very important people, delivering measurable manpower that supports both the everyday operations of the park and large-scale events.
Annmarie Emmet has been a volunteer with VIP since 1987. Annmarie has amassed well over 18,000 hours and has no plans of stopping any time soon. She has tirelessly climbed ladders and made thousands of rubbings of names for visitors who wish to have a keepsake of their visits to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. She has been honored with both the prestigious Hartzog Award for her enduring service and Volunteer of the Year award for the National Mall and Memorial Parks.
We at Travelers Aid salute you Annmarie and thank you for all of your volunteer service!
