Each year, the Poquoson Exchange Club recognizes a Poquoson resident who has distinguished themselves in the community. The person or persons who are chosen generally donate their time, services, and any other resources they have to help others in the community without ever expecting anything in return. Almost without exception, when awarded the Book of Golden Deeds, the recipients are honestly shocked that we would every pick them!
