Residents from Allen County who demonstrate outstanding volunteerism in the community were honored at tonight's Jefferson Awards dinner.
All eight winners were recognized for their hard work and selfless dedication.
But only one winner could be chosen to win a trip to Washington D.C. to represent Allen County.
Marjorie Bryan was that lucky woman and says it is an overwhelming honor because she thought the other seven were more qualified than her.
Bryan received an additional 1,050 dollars to go toward her charity, Blue Star Mothers. Here she operates a food pantry that helps veterans.
The other winners also received 350 dollars to go to their charity.
