This year’s recipients were the Eagle’s Nest and Annie Hall, crime watch and community organizer.
Judge Carla Baldwin served as mistress of ceremonies and was recognized for her recent election win. Three members, Dr. Joan Boyd, Sarah Brown-Clark and Brenda Martin, received honors from the national chapter of The Links Inc. for their 40 years of service to the organization. Lenora Hill was chairwoman of the event, and Margaret Staples is the chapter president.
