BAC VOLUNTEERS Recognized With A Special Award
The Volunteers for Beaverton Activity Center were recently honored as recipients of the Modern Woodmen Hometown Hero Program Award. Modern Woodmen was founded in 1883 as a fraternal financial benefit society. The non-profit organization supports members, families, and communities with a unique blend of financial services, fraternal benefits, and local-impact opportunities. In 2018, Modern Woodmen and its members provided $19.9 million and 470,000 volunteer hours to support national fraternal activities and programs. Former Beaverton resident and BHS grad Mark List coordinated this recognition and presented the award at a general membership meeting on September 11. List, currently a Midland resident , noted his connection to the city of Beaverton and Beaverton Schools . He voiced his appreciation of the many hours volunteers have logged in while supporting the renovation and operation of his his old junior high school building.
Volunteers for Beaverton Activity Center work to support daily operations, programs, and services offered by the Activity Center. Community focused, dedicated, and capable workers join together to maintain the facility and offer enrichment opportunities . The volunteers take on short term tasks, volunteering one shift per month, or volunteering each week. The Woodmen Home Town Heroes Award was accompanied by a donation to the BAC earmarked for a local charity or program chosen by the Volunteers. The 2019 award recipients voted to match the gift and send it to Gladwin Rotary Club as a contribution toward phase two of the new Children’s splash park located at Ross Lake in Beaverton.
