The 62nd Annual Quincy Exchange Club Golden Deeds Awards Luncheon was held at the Stoney Creek Inn Friday at noon. The deserved recipient was Patty Adam of Birthright of Quincy.

Gary Peters handled the Master of Ceremonies and introduced the past Golden Deeds winners in attendance. Cullan Duke, the chairman for the event, then introduced the members of the Golden Deeds committee (Rich Gengenbacher, Davis Adam, Gary Farha and Dave Rees). He then mentioned that this particular project started back in 1919 and is the longest running project of the National Exchange Club. In introducing the winner, Patty Adam, Cullan mentioned that this honor goes to a person who goes out of their way to make our community a better place to live.

Patty Adam then thanked the Exchange Club and the community for their generous support of Birthright over the years. Patty has been at Birthright 34 of the 41 years of its existence. She actually succeeded Billy Brod and Kathy Peters Druffel at Birthright and both of those ladies were previous Golden Deeds Award winners.

Jared Haugh presented the Book of Golden Deeds keynote speech honoring our winner and mentioned that not all of Patty’s stories were success stories but the common denominator in all of them is her desire to help others. She even left the waiting room while her husband Bill was having open heart surgery to assist a young lady in need. She left things in God’s hands and did what she could do to aid someone else. That’s Patty Adam and that’s why she is the winner of the 62nd Annual Book of Golden Deeds.
