Volks to receive Book of Golden Deeds Award

ANDERSON, Ind. — The Anderson Noon Exchange Club will honor Don and Sandy Volk with the 45th club presentation of the Book of Golden Deeds Award. The awards banquet will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the Edge Golf & Dining.

The community is invited to join in celebrating the accomplishments and service the Volks have given to Madison County through their time and talent.

The Book of Golden Deeds Award is the National Exchange Club’s longest running project. The award recognizes dedicated volunteers who give endless hours of their time and talents toward making their communities better places to live. Recent past recipients include Tom and Bobbette Snyder, Bill and Ann Hardacre, Carl and Betty Erskine, Judy and Phil Lambert, Charles Braddock, Judge Dennis and Emily Carroll, and Matilda Barber.

Representatives of the Exchange Club said that the Volks have been instrumental in recognizing the needs of the Anderson community and rolling up their sleeves to do whatever has been necessary to move initiatives and the community forward. Don Volk served General Motors for 32 years in leadership positions. He followed that with an additional 16 years at the helm of the Paramount Theatre Centre. He has been involved in the Committee for Anderson’s Future, the Advisory Panel for Anderson Community Schools Review, Anderson Symphony Orchestra, Saint John’s Development Board, president of the Rotary Club, among others. He has also been the recipient of Gov. Daniel’s Distinguished Hoosier Award, Sertoma Service to Mankind, and the Elmo Funk Ideal of Service Award. Currently, he is now a substitute teacher for Anderson Community Schools.

Most recently, the Volks have served as co-chairmen of the St. Vincent’s de Paul Walk/ Run for the Poor. They have volunteered together for Alternatives Inc., the United Way, American Cancer Society, Anderson Community Concerts, St. Mary’s Church, Highland High School Marching Band, and Martin Luther King City-Wide Celebration. Together, they have been awarded the Mayor’s Chief Anderson Award and Alternative’s Elizabeth McMahan Award for Outstanding Volunteer.
