The honor was bestowed at the Penobscot View Grange in Rockport Oct. 13. Following a short presentation of Youthlinks programs to the Grange members, Sherrill Snowdeal delivered the award to Seth Walton of Youthlinks.

“We are very grateful for the recognition of the value of our programs by the Knox Pomona Grange.
