Bond is Boone's volunteer of year

Mayor Loretta Clawson has proclaimed Bettie Bond as the 2013 Volunteer of the Year in celebration of her work and dedication to the town of Boone.

Clawson presented Bond with the proclamation outlining her service to the town, along with a locally made wreath, on Dec. 13.

Bond currently serves on the town's Historic Preservation Commission, the Fourth of July parade committee and the Christmas parade planning committee.

She spent many hours working with the Historic Preservation Commission to ensure the federal government did not abandon the downtown Boone post office, which so many people use, and stayed active during the renovation process, as well, according to Clawson.

Bond also worked with others to encourage the town to provide the upfront cost to purchase the Appalachian Theatre and she continues to work with the nonprofit board that has acquired the theater and is paying back the cost to the town in record time, Clawson said.

"Bettie also works to support Horn in the West and many other organizations in the area, and her enthusiasm for the town of Boone and its projects cannot be matched," according to the town proclamation.

"Bettie is a wonderful person who contributes so much of her time to the town of Boone. She is very deserving of this award, and it is my honor to have been able to present it to her as one of my last proclamations as mayor of Boone," Clawson said.
