RICHMOND — Enterprise Grange 48 will honor two locals with Community Citizen Awards during Grange Month celebration at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 17, in the Grange Community Room, 15 Alexander Reed Road, according to a news release from the Grange.

Tracy Tuttle will received the award for Richmond and Valerie Woodworth for Dresden.

National Grange Master Betsy Huber recently declared April as Grange Month. “For 149 years, the Grange has worked to advance the interests of rural Americans by providing a voice for their legislative concern and by showing them how to strengthen their neighborhoods through community service. During Grange Month, we want all of the communities we are a part of to know that the Grange is a living organization that has a lot to offer,” Huber said in the release.

Tuttle grew up in Richmond and with her husband Dana, has raised a son and a daughter. She is the owner of Kennebec Cutters and served on the Richmond Selectboard for six years. She has led fundraisers for people who have had tragedies and will drive to someone’s home to pick them up to take them to her salon for their needs or go to their homes and take care of them. She is a supporter of The Richmond Area Food Pantry. “She walks the walk” as one person has said.

Woodworth has helped with Dresden’s Harvest Suppers at the school and has been a ballot clerk for years. She is a member of the Dresden Historical Society and helped out with the Brick Schoolhouse. She also volunteers at the Dresden Swap Shop taking in clothes and household items, toys and books so they can be reused and not wind up in the landfill.
