To the Editor:
Each year, Fairmont Exchange Club awards its most prestigious award, the "Book of Golden Deeds Award," to a special person who has dedicated his or her time and efforts to strengthening the community.
The purpose of the Book of Golden Deeds Award is to recognize those citizens within the community whose self-sacrifice, responses to duty and other praiseworthy actions may pass unnoticed and unremembered by the general public. This award may be given to a member or non-member of the Exchange Club. The award has been presented annually by the Fairmont Exchange Club since 1975. The recipient of last year's award was Dick Adams.
The Exchange Club is now accepting applications for 2014 nominees. For an application or more information, contact Ron Kopischke at (507) 235-5538, or come to Profinium Inc., 105 Lake Ave., in Fairmont.
