ORANGE...The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is our country’s premier volunteer award program encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition. The award is presented through the office of the President of the United States and the Elks Drug Awareness Program. The award encourages you to look around, be inspired and take positive action that changes the world. The Elks Drug Awareness Program presents the lifetime PVSA to an adult who has volunteered 4,000 or more hours over their lifetime. To date, more than 2,000 volunteers nationwide have been recognized for their service.

John Smith is the fourth member of the Orange Elks Lodge #1475 to achieve this award. John is Mr. Reliable at the Orange Lodge. The lodge is very involved with projects in our community, with our Veterans and the youth of Orange. He is always available when a fixit project needs to be completed at the lodge. When the sign up list is posted or he is asked, John is there to help! Congratulations Mr. Reliable John! Presenting the award to John is Mike Cash. John is with his son Colin and daughter Amanda.
