Mr. Eric Boerer Day!

Yep, our very own Erok Boerer is being honored by the Mayor for his “volunteerism and dedication to the City of Pittsburgh” and is being given the Citizen Service Award, the newest addition to Mayor Luke’s servePGH Initiative, on this 26th of August 2011. The award is going to key leaders in our fair city who have “contributed exceptional levels of service towards the advancement of Pittsburgh communities.”

The letter specifically highlights his work advancing the City’s goal of “a cleaner and greener future” by promoting bike lanes, bike commuting, and providing free resources and information to bicyclists via Bike Pittsburgh, and working to make our streets safer for everyone who uses our streets. Check out the full proclamation below.
