Members of the Drumheller Rotary Club got together at the Ramada Hotel Monday night, July 31 for a special meeting.
 
For only the fifth time, the local club handed out their Distinguished Unsung Hero Award.
 
The latest recipient is longtime volunteer Ken Smith, who admitted it's a great honour.
 
"It sure is. I'm really proud of it and thanks to the Rotary Club for this tremendous trophy: it makes me feel happy," he told 99.5 Drum FM.
 
In making the presentation, Rotarian Jim Fisher noted Smith has been one of their most consistent volunteers since he joined the club in 2002.
 
"I help at the White Elephant Sale: I help put all the tables and stuff away, I help people carry the stuff out and stuff like that, and they appreciate me," Smith recalled fondly.
 
"I like to help them, they like me to work and they told me 'keep up the good job' and I will."
 
The Rotary Club also welcomed Linda Fisher as their new secretary.
