Local Modern Woodmen of America members worked together to help beautify a neighborhood in Stanford as part of the fraternal financial services organization's Good Neighbors Program.
Local camp #12490 members placed four picnic tables at the Lincoln County Cedar Creek Quail Club in late July.
"As a member-based, fraternal organization, Modern Woodmen strives to give member families opportunities to volunteer and enhance their communities," said Mrs. Speaks, local Modern Woodmen camp secretary. "Our Good Neighbors Program does both."
The Good Neighbors Program gives Modern Woodmen camps across the nation $500 for approved hands-on repair and beautification projects. "Nearly 500 such projects beautify communities in the United States annually," Mrs. Speaks added.
Founded in 1883 as a fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen of America offers financial services and fraternal member benefits to individuals and families throughout the United States.
