ODON — Several active community members were honored by the Odon Business Association for service performed in the North Daviess area.

Amos Stoll earned the 2006 D.M. Hayes Community Service Award, an annual presentation of the business association, and was honored at the organization’s meeting Monday.

The owner and operator of Stoll Brothers Lumber in Odon, he has poured time and effort into favorite charities, including the Daviess County Relief Sale. Each year Stoll works collecting a variety of items to sell for charity. A builder of hand-crafted grandfather clocks, Stoll sells one at the sale, providing yet another boost for the charitable organization.

Also a proponent of the North Daviess Medical Clinic, Stoll was instrumental in the push to bring health care and a new doctor to Odon. He’s also been active in other moves to lure new business and industry to the northern part of the county, including the Star Glove Company, many years ago, as well as the United Films/Pliant plant.

Stoll has also given not only of his pocketbook, he’s has also donated labor for park improvements. A member of the board of directors of First National Bank of Odon, he’s also working with another group to decide the feasibility of bringing an assisted living facility to the area.

President and treasurer of the Odon Business Association, Beverly and Dave Smith, also presented another community service award to Jim Bickley, another Odon activist who has given time and money making North Daviess a better place to live.
