Rep. Tim Jones Announces Missouri Lieutenant Governor's Senior Service Award Recipient

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Rep. Tim Jones, R-Eureka, announced Tuesday that Jan Long, Eureka, was named as one of the recipients of Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder's Senior Service Award.  Jones named Long as a nominee for the Mid-East Region.

"Jan is an extremely giving and caring woman," Jones said. "Her extraordinary compassion and willingness to help her community has defined her as a senior citizen who goes above and beyond."

The Lieutenant Governor's Service Award acknowledges senior citizens that provide their local communities with at least 40 hours of community service per year.  Kinder will present the award to Long in Eureka.  In addition, Kinder will hold a luncheon for all ten recipients of the award in his office in Jefferson City.

Long is the owner and operator of Long Ford in Eureka.  She and her husband were the founders of Rockwood Bank in Eureka where she plans and takes all the Senior trips with the Prestige Club of Rockwood Bank.  Long is also the founder of the Eureka Historical Society and organized the Tri-County Helpmates more than 25 years ago.
