The Friends of Jawbone want to wish the Desert Search and Rescue Unit's volunteers (DGSRV) a hearty congratulations on receiving the prestigious President's Volunteer Service Award. This national honor is offered on an annual basis to those individuals, groups, and families who have met or exceeded requirements for volunteer service and have demonstrated exemplary citizenship through volunteering.

We can think of no group more deserving of this honor than DGSRV, whose tireless work has helped to make the greater Jawbone Canyon Area, and Eastern Kern County, a safer place to ride.

President and CEO of DGSRV Ray Henderson said, “The recipients of the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD are role models for all Americans. Each volunteer hour contributed makes a difference in improving the quality of life for others, and I encourage everyone to contribute to our community by volunteering. Volunteers bring us closer together as families, as communities and as a Nation, through their commitment.”

The AWARD is issued by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, a group created by President Bush to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making to our Nation.  The Council comprises leaders in government, media, entertainment, business, education, nonprofits, volunteer service organizations, and community volunteering.
