Public Service Recognition Week will be held this year from May 4-10. It is a time set aside to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees.
This year’s theme is “Proud to Serve.” The Public Employees Roundtable, the group that runs Public Service Recognition Week, is encouraging federal employees to communicate to the public the benefits and value of the work they do. Anybody interested in sharing their thoughts is encouraged to do so through the group’s Facebook page or on Twitter at #PSRW and #Proud2ServeUSA.
Public Service Recognition Week has been going on since 1985. It is organized annually by the Public Employees Roundtable (PER) and its member organizations.
PER will kick off PSRW 2014 with its second annual Public Service 5K run/walk in Washington, D.C. Other feature events in Washington include a public town hall meeting with Cabinet secretaries, a Washington Nationals baseball game and a congressional breakfast to announce the finalists of the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals.
