The Presidio Public Library and volunteer Mrs. Haydee Hernandez hosted the 20th Annual Presidio Volunteer Fire Department reception on Monday, October 10 — the start of Fire Prevention Week. This week the Presidio Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting a number of programs for local youth, including a tour of the fire department and a demonstration of the volunteers in action.

Ramon Rodriguez helped put together the ceremony, and the Presidio Public Library honored him as a student volunteer during our reception for his volunteer work in the community. He was presented a Citizenship Volunteer Award for his many contributions to Presidio through Project Homeleaf — in addition to the downtown planter project, he  was responsible for the Recycling Containers installed downtown and also keeping up with the Presidio Recycling Center. His contributions to the community of Presidio are many.
