This is the third year of Modern Woodmen of America’s Impact Maker Award program, which seeks to congratulate and reward Modern Woodmen members who hold unique and impactful events for members in their communities.

Each year, Modern Woodmen will recognize 15 events held throughout the country. Winning groups receive a certificate, a commemorative award, a $250 donation to a charity of their choice and $50 toward a celebratory activity.

“Through fraternal activities like these, members can make an impact, strengthen their communities and bring more goodness into the world,” says Jill Lain Weaver, Modern Woodmen’s chief fraternal officer. “These events showcase what fraternalism is all about.”

Congratulations to the 2019 Impact Maker Award winners!
