The Crozet Masons recognized Doris Marie Woolford with their Community Builders Award at their meeting Oct. 9.

“I thank the entire Mason community,” said Woolford, who was nominated by Ronny Byram. “I didn’t start out with a goal of getting recognition. I’ve applied my gifts that the Lord has given me. I drive patients to their medical appointments, mainly, and I teach Sunday School [at Crozet Baptist] and I’m on the mission board.

“God says humble yourself before the Lord and He will lift you up. Humility gets down and lifts up. Humbly submit yourself and ask Him how He wants to use you.”

Woolford said her career in the military gave her the spirit of serving.

Goldie Tomlin, the worshipful grandmaster at King Solomon’s Lodge 194, thanked Woolford for her help on projects at Mountainside Senior Living. “As Masons, it’s our honor to honor you and others who do good.”

“Any time she’s called to serve, she’s quick to answer,” said Rev. David Collyer, the pastor at Crozet Baptist Church. “She’s a wonderful steward of the gifts she’s given. She never says no. She does what needs to be done.”
