During the annual picnic, Patricia Mosco received Elder Statesman award.
A tradition for our Junior Order United American Mechanics Council #117 has been to recognize the exemplary efforts of a member who has demonstrated by their volunteerism and working within our Council and more importantly their commitment to serving in the community to make it a better place to live.
Even though 2020 has had a new normal for all of us, we still wanted to acknowledge a member who we feel goes above and beyond in these efforts. Our honoree this year has served as an officer for years in our local Council, has been the Chair of Committees on the local and State level. Attendance at the annual State Session has been a must for this Junior who has held several State offices over the years. Joining the Berkeley Springs Council #117 on September 10, 2004 was definitely a blessing to the Junior Order.
They say if you want something done, asks a busy person and it will get done and this certainly applies to this lady. You will find her at our breakfasts, Halloween Trick or Treat, the Christmas parade and all our socials, banquets, and picnics as well as all our community projects such as Grandparents Day and serving meals at the Starting Points and Senior Center.
With all the efforts she puts into our activities, she still finds time to attend church where she loves to hear a “good Sermon” to quote her. Having the heart of a true volunteer, you can find her at the local mission store a minimum of three days a week where she is currently serving as President of the Morgan County Rescue Mission Auxiliary.
With all this she still has time to spend with family and friends. To some she is known as “Martha” with all her talents of cooking, sewing, or just making you feel welcome in her home at any time of the day.
It is with great pride that we recognize this amazing Junior who sets an example to all of a truly, caring Junior. Our Elder Statesman for 2020 is Patricia Mosco.
GO FORTH AND SPREAD THE NEWS OF OUR BELOVED ORDER'S PRINCIPLES. OUR NATION NEEDS US DURING THESE TROUBLED TIMES.
