Dec. 16, 2013. In celebration of her hard work and dedication to the Town of Boone, Mayor Loretta Clawson proclaimed Bettie Bond as the 2013 Volunteer of the Year. On Friday, Dec. 13, the mayor presented Ms. Bond with the proclamation outlining her service to the Town along with a locally made wreath.

Ms. 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. Ms. Bond also worked with others to encourage the Town to provide the upfront cost to purchase the Appalachian Theatre and continues to work with the non-profit board that has acquired the theatre, paying back the cost to the Town in record time. 

“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,” said Mayor Clawson.
