The Farmington Exchange Club is planning its Book of Golden Deeds Award, given in recognition of outstanding volunteerism and community service, and would like nominations from the public.
The award is presented to a nominee who is sincere about helping the community, has an exceptional track record of continued, unselfish giving and enjoys volunteering to help others. The recipient can be from any profession or a member of any organization. They can be from any walk of life, and should be someone who deserves acclaim, but rarely receives it. The Book of Golden Deeds Award is not limited to a single volunteer, but can also be presented to a group of individuals such as civic groups, religious groups and charitable organizations.
It is the Exchange Club’s objective to recognize and thank these individuals at their April 18, 2013 dinner meeting. The recipient will be presented with a special plaque and commemorative program highlighting their accomplishments.
Past winners of this award given since 1956 include: C. Parker Fleming, John Grouten, Pat & Paul Robotham, Betty Coykendall, Bea Stockwell, Jack Crockett, Jerry Wadsworth, Marguerite W. Yung (Peg), Arline Whitaker, Jerry Pagano, Ruth Grobe, Mike Andreas and last year’s winner, Dave Eveleth.
In nominating a candidate, please keep in mind that the only criterion for receiving the award is that the candidate is to have made significant contributions to the community. When selecting your choice, please include the reason for the nomination as well as your name and phone number. If you have any questions please contact Carole King, Chairperson at (860)916-1144. Nominations can be emailed to Carole King at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to:
4 Greencrest Dr.
Farmington, CT 06032
Nominations must be received on or before March 22, 2013.
