Jul. 26, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

WINFIELD, W.Va. -- The Putnam County Democrat Club honored Mary Sue Woodson with the club's first Meritorious Service Award at a recent dinner meeting at the Putnam County Courthouse.

The award was established to honor and thank Woodson for her many years of dedicated service to the club, the Democratic Party, and especially her support of Democratic candidates, according to a news release from the club.

Woodson served as president of the Putnam County Democrat Club from 1997-1999 and 2010-2013. She initiated beneficial changes to the club, increased membership, fundraising and encouraged members to participate in election campaigns, and generated multiple club news releases.

Woodson received a special Club Appreciation Award from Brian Wells in 2000, Democrat of the Year in 2012, and was awarded with the W.Va. Democratic Party Putnam County Democrat of the Year in 2010 at the annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner at the Charleston Civic Center.
