Local Modern Woodmen members honor hometown hero Mrs. Angie Hart, was recognized for all of her years teaching young students on 11/07/2018 by local Modern Woodmen of America members. Mrs. Hart was honored for going above and beyond for her students through Modern Woodmen’s Hometown Heroes Program. As part of this program, members of the Salem Modern Woodmen chapter presented the recipient with a certificate and a $100 award grant, to be presented to the charitable organization of the honoree’s choice. “Volunteers form the foundation of a strong community,” says Jane Wayer, local Modern Woodmen chapter activities coordinator. “Modern Woodmen’s Hometown Hero program gives us the chance to thank those who selflessly give their time to make the world a better place.” Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to take part in social activities and community service projects to meet local needs.
