Gold Distinction towns presented the Spirit of America Foundation Tribute at their
annual town meeting or inauguration, in April (National Volunteer Month) or during an
annual community festival – their intention: presenting the community service award at a
well-attended event (great publicity for those honored) & establishing a nice annual
tradition to which folks will look forward.

Note: Spirit of America’s Gold Distinction program started in 2012.
