Pam Weaver receives the Hilltop Kiwanis Member of the Year award. She was shocked by the announcement. Weaver has been serving the club for more than 40 years.
Pam Weaver was named the Hilltop Kiwanis member of the year on Aug. 18 at Crossroads Methodist Church.
After being announced the winner, Weaver held her camera in complete shock. She expected to be one of the photographers for the Kiwanis award winner, not the recipient.
“I didn’t expect to win the award. I am very humble to receive this,” Weaver said.
In 1971, Weaver became a member of Kiwanike, which was Kiwanis auxiliary for women. During that time Kiwanis was not open to women.
Two years before Weaver became involved with the club, her late husband Robert was a member and she assisted him at various Kiwanis events.
In 1995 she became a member of Hilltop Kiwanis.
During the introduction of the Kiwanis honoree, John Malone, president of Hilltop Kiwanis said, “I found a member that never said get someone else. It was never a matter of job titles or descriptions with this individual.”
Weaver’s volunteer experience extends 40 years serving the club and the Hilltop community.
Weaver received the Anna Mildred Henderson Community Service award in 2006, served as the president of Kiwanis from 2001-03, and she also served as the board of directors for Hilltop Kiwanis from 2003-06.
Currently Weaver is the chair of the community service, public relations and newspaper committees, the secretary of the Hilltop Kiwanis Cabin Foundation, and serves as primary photographer.
“Hilltop Kiwanis is important because it’s for the children. We do all that we can to make sure the children are safe and have school supplies,” Weaver said.
“She deserves this award. She has done a lot for Kiwanis and the community,” Kiwanis member Vicki Malone, said.
When asked about one of her favorite events over the years, she said she enjoyed the blockwatches.
“I don’t like to see kids hurting. I enjoy what I do. I don’t do it for recognition. I just don’t know how to say no,” Weaver said.
