Golden Deeds dinner canceled
The Exchange Club of Fairmont has canceled the 46th annual Golden Deeds awards dinner this year. It was determined it was almost impossible to provide safe COVID-19 social distancing for the recipient, family, friends and club members. The Golden Deeds Award has previously honored a specific community resident for his or her self sacrifice, response to duty and other charitable actions not previously recognized or acknowledged by the community. The Exchange Club will continue to accept nominations for individuals deemed worthy of this annual award.
