Book of Golden Deeds: Volunteer efforts are very important to our society and should not go unnoticed. The National Exchange Club’s longest running project, the Book of Golden Deeds Award, recognizes dedicated volunteers who give endless hours of their time and talents toward making their communities better places to live. Ever since the Exchange Club of Huntington, Ind., sponsored the first award in 1919, thousands of unsung heroes and heroines have been recognized.

Adopt-A-Spot: The Exchange Club of Wythe picks up trash on Hampton Roads Center Parkway between Coliseum Drive and Magruder Boulevard five times a year.
