Amador County leaders Laurie Webb and Robin Peters named as recipients of the 2017 Margaret Dalton Golden Acorn Award

The Jackson Band of Miwuk Indians and the Amador County Chamber of Commerce established the award to honor local people who contribute their time and efforts to local causes with little fanfare or recognition. 

Webb has served on the board of directors for the Amador-Tuolumne Community Action Agency since 1989, on the Foothill Conservancy board since 2007 and the board of Sutter Amador Hospital for nine years, ending her term once the new hospital was built.

This year Laurie Webb will have served as director of the Amador Senior Center for 30 years. She says the challenge of serving the needs of the people who are between 50 and 100-plus is one of the most satisfying things she has ever done

Susan Peters, currently serving his second term on the Sutter Creek City Council, developed an appreciation for local history as a child growing up in Amador County.

Serving as a member of the Sutter Creek Planning Commission and later as a member of the City Council, he has been instrumental in projects including the Central Eureka Mine, Miner’s Bend, Sutter Creek Grammar School restoration, and Minnie Provis park rehabilitation.

Most recently he helped orchestrate the City’s purchase of the Knight Foundry in order to preserve the facility as a unique example of historic industrial technologies.

Webb and Peters will be honored at a banquet to be held Friday, March 3, 2017 at the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort’s Grand Oak Ballroom.

Tickets are available at or the Amador County Chamber of Commerce office located at 115 Main St. Jackson, CA 95642.

Chamber members and members of the public can also make reservations by calling the Chamber office at 223-0350.
