The Osage Community Elks Lodge of Laurie recently presented community and lodge awards.

Elks Distinguished Citizenship Award was presented to Don Woods, Jr.  and the good folks at Woods Supermarket.   “They provide great help to our lodge in many ways not just through their services but also through their benevolence.  We rely upon them to help with food for the Kids Fishing Derby, our Christmas Basket program and even the Shootout whether as a donor or a good neighbor, letting us park volunteer cars in their lot.  But we all strive for the same goal, serving our community” remarked Elks President, Frank Scarpino when announcing the award.  Accepting the Citizenship Award for Woods Supermarket is Sunrise Beach Store Manager, Mike Reynolds and Melissa Carroll, Asst Store Manager, (not pictured Don Woods). photo provided
