Quincy Exchange Club looking for nominations for 71st annual Golden Deeds Award
QUINCY — The Quincy Exchange Club is giving people an opportunity to recognize someone who has been a selfless volunteer or has worked tirelessly on behalf of the community.
The club will present its 71st annual Golden Deeds award during a May 12 luncheon at the Elks Club. The club is accepting nominations through April 1.
The Book of Golden Deeds is the most distinguished award the Exchange Club presents each year. Last year’s recipient was Chuck Scholz, best known for his three-term stint as the mayor of Quincy from 1993-2005. He also has been a board member, trustee, chairman or volunteer for dozens of other organizations in the city.
Past recipients have made a positive impact in various ways on the lives of many people in Quincy. The award is called the Book of Golden Deeds because letters, written on behalf of the recipient by those who have firsthand knowledge of their efforts, are placed in a book and forever documented.
Nominees may be anyone who has made Quincy a better place to work and live. They may be the individuals who lead a worthy cause, or they may quietly go about their volunteer efforts behind the scenes.
Nominations may be made by letter sent to Golden Deeds Award, P.O. Box 1163, Quincy, IL 62306, or by email to Cullan Duke at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and the name of the nominee along with the deed or deeds on which the nomination is based.
