Quincy Exchange Club Member Rick Genegenbacher informs Patti Adam (left) that she has been awarded the 2014 Exchange Club of Quincy Book of Golden Deeds

Volunteer efforts are very important to our society and should not go unnoticed. The National Exchange Club’s longest running project, the Book of Golden Deeds Award, recognizes dedicated volunteers who give endless hours of their time and talents toward making their communities better places to live. Ever since the Exchange Club of Huntington, Ind., sponsored the first award in 1919, thousands of unsung heroes and heroines have been recognized. The Quincy Exchange Club recognized their first recipient in 1954. The Golden Deeds Award luncheon is one of our most important annual events. The Golden Deeds Award exemplifies The National Exchange Club’s beliefs. The Golden Deeds Award recipient is a person 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, including Exchange. He or she can be from any walk of life, and should be someone who deserves acclaim, but rarely receives it.
