President to honor Denver-area volunteer

DENVER, Colorado ” During his visit to Colorado, President Bush will honor a woman who has volunteered for seven years at a program that provides eye care for the homeless.

Bush will present the President’s Volunteer Service Award to Stout Street Eye Clinic volunteer Cherie Yager when he arrives Thursday at Buckley Air Force Base.

Yager worked as an optician in the Denver area for 25 years before quitting and volunteering at the clinic. More than 4,000 people received treatment at the clinic last year.

Bush typically honors local volunteers on his trips around the country.
