In 1972, the Thursday Morning Roundtable established an annual award for “Meritorious Service to the Community.” TMR members nominate individuals who have made valuable contributions to the community without widespread recognition. Only volunteer efforts and accomplishments are considered. The award is presented at a meeting of the Roundtable.
