Modern Woodmen members honor local hometown hero
Local volunteer Lori Walker, Wall, was recognized for countless hours of service to the community on May 13 by local Modern Woodmen of America members.
Walker was honored for her 41 years of service to the Wall school district, starting and running different business in the Wall area, donating time and energy to different projects and raising a family in the community through Modern Woodmen’s Hometown Heroes Program. As part of this program, members of the Wall Modern Woodmen chapter presented the recipient with a certificate and a $100 award grant, to be presented to the charitable organization of the honoree’s choice.
“Volunteers form the foundation of a strong community,” says Don Haynes, local Modern Woodmen chapter activities coordinator. “Modern Woodmen’s Hometown Hero program gives us the chance to thank those who selflessly give their time to make the world a better place.”
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to take part in social activities and community service projects to meet local needs.
