Civic Service Award given to Perkins

Editors Note - Vance Perkins was the recipient of the annual Civic Service Award at the 71st DeQuincy Chamber of Commerce banquet held Thursday night at the Bible Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. He was nominated for the award by Harry Methvin. The following is the nomination letter:

Daily, we encounter some individuals who make occasional waves and other who make constant ripples. One such individual who makes constant ripples is Vance DeWayne Perkins, whom, I feel, deserves consideration as a Civic Award Nominee.

Vance has been employed at Citgo Oil Refinery for the past 38 years. He attends Hargrove Bible Baptist Church which began in the home of his grandparents. He has served on various committees, as song leader, treasurer, and deacon. Currently he serves as chairman of the deacon board of which he has been a member for the past 30 years.

When his work schedule allows, he ministers in song to the residents of the The Care Center of DeQuincy. His ministry also includes visiting the sick and elderly. He often prepares and delivers meals to shut-ins of the area. While most remain unaware of his charitable deeds, the recipients are always most grateful.
