Lowell Osborne of Salem recently received a Hometown Hero Award presented by Modern Woodmen of America.
"The Hometown Heroes Program helps us acknowledge and thank volunteers across the country for doing just that," Karen Lance, local Modern Woodmen of America secretary said. "Improving the quality of life for our members, their families and their communities is Modern Woodmen's mission."
Osborne, who is 93, says the Fulton County Senior Center is a special place to him. "I live alone and if I didn't come in here, it would be a lonely day. Coming in just makes my day better," Osborne said.
"You should have been in here last week," said Helen Mott, fellow patron of the center. "He was dancing and kicking up his heals!"
The award from Modern Woodmen was accompanied by $100 check which Osborne donated to the Senior Center.
The money Osborne donated will go to help the Salem Senior Center's aging program along with meals and other center programs and events.
"Lowell is one of our most faithful, loving and pleasant participants. We are proud and very blessed to have him at our center." said Betty Teague, in-service coordinator for the Salem Senior Center.
