Montgomery Ruritan Club presents awards

The Montgomery Ruritan Club used the occasion of its Annual Club and Turkey Trot Festival Appreciation night to present its “Distinguished Community Service Awards” to two longtime club members Dale Leonard (right) and Gary D. Jones (left). Making the presentation was this year’s Ruritan Club president, Shad Truelove (middle). Both Leonard and Jones are retired Vietnam War veterans, who have been contributing club and community members and have volunteered to serve in a variety of ways during both club and festival events; present honors and recognitions much deserved. This club and festival award has been presented since 1977 to club or community volunteers judged to have made significant and prolonged contributions to the Montgomery Ruritan Club, the Turkey Trot Festival and to the Daviess County community in general.
