The Exchange Club of Albany presented one of their most Prestigious Awards, The Book of Golden Deeds, to an extremely deserving individual, Mr. Jim Hill. Mr. Hill follows a long line of very deserving individuals who give themselves to the Community but expect no recognition in return. The National Exchange began presenting The Book of Golden Deeds in 1919 and the Exchange Club of Albany started in 1949. Mr. Hill is our 72nd recipient.Mr. Hill retired 21 years ago and while visiting his brother-in law at Phoebe took notice of the shuttle drivers. He decided that this was an opportunity to help others. About a year after, he found another opportunity that included his carpentering skills, joining the Ramp Crew. Between Phoebe and the Council on Aging the Ramp Crew works together to provide ramps to aging individuals, disable individuals and handicap children. He can share many experiences that had the Crew and the individual in tears because they were so happy to finally be mobile.The Ramp Crew consist of about 15 men ranging in ages from 60 to 95 and build 70 to 75 ramps per year. They provide an outstanding service to the Community and expect no recognition in return.Joining Mr. Hill for the Presentation was his family and part of the Ramp Crew. If you have the opportunity to Thank Mr. Hill, please take the time to do so.Thank you again Mr. Hill and the Ramp Crew!!! ... See MoreSee Less
