On Saturday May 18th Woodman of the World a fraternal organization will present awards for individuals who have either saved a life or have been instrumental in caring about others. Nominations are being sought for the awards in the two categories. Steve Bishop is hoping someone in Botetourt County may have a person in mind.
A few details on the organization are from the website. “Woodmen of the World members share a commitment to family, community and country. Woodmen of the World helps build strong communities through patriotism, education, community betterment, diversity, and wellness. We’re dedicated to helping others. Woodmen of the World lodges donate money and equipment to police and fire departments, schools and other community organizations. We help families, too. When our members see a neighbor in need, we match their lodge funds, doubling the resources they have to help people in their communities.”
Bishop who is an agent with the organization said simply, “The first award is for some one who has saved the life of another.” The second, “This is for an individual who assists others in a charitable manner such as driving the elderly to the doctor or providing them with hot meals, or for volunteer work at schools or at hospitals.”
