Good Deeds Awards ceremony April 6

The Williams Senior Center is hosting a Golden Deeds Awards dinner April 6 at the Senior Center, 850 W. Grant Avenue.

The idea came from a senior who witnessed an act of kindness from a young man in the Williams community. She thought since good deeds sometimes go unnoticed, it would be nice to recognize those in the community.

After receiving numerous nominations, a committee selected three adults and two youths to be honored at the dinner.

The dinner will include enchiladas, beans, rice, salad, beverages and desserts. A suggested $10 donation is appreciated.

Everyone is invited to attend.
