COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – A Columbus man is honored for decades of service to the community.

The Columbus Exchange Club presented its 44th Annual Book of Golden Deeds Award to Fred Kinder.

Each year the Club recognizes volunteers who give of their time to help make their community a better place to live.

This year’s honoree is embracing the second act of his life as a time to serve others.

“I have lost so many friends after they retire, because they don’t do anything, and there’s so much opportunity in Columbus and Lowndes County to volunteer. I mean I just don’t understand why more people don’t get out and give back.”

The Exchange Club is a national organization dedicated to strengthening their communities.
