Those who are not getting the recognition that is deserved, may not be getting award recomendations either. The people who see what is going on need to contact the Powers That Be and let them know who and what is being done so that they may respond. 
On the other hand there are those who (publicly and loudly) claim to have put someone in so that they may gain from a feeling of thanks from the person. Even if they are only saying it to gain favour and material goods rather than actually putting in award recomendations. 
Those who serve do it because they see a need. The thanks are gravy, that helps get the tougher meal down.

I know that people get overlooked.  I have a friend that waited 12 years and three or four kingdoms for his.  It happens.  All I can say to that is better late than early.  I would much rather have someone say, "about time!" than "Huh?  you have to be kidding me.  She got that?"
Lastly, and this is the hard part to say and understand on email so bear with me.  If a person works locally for 20 years then chances are they do it because they chose to and they like it and the rewards of service.  They are respected for their knowlege and wealth of stories of the old days, they are competent and trusted, and they carry a special place in the heart and soul of the group.  After 20 years, they know the score.  And chances are that they hear all of the thank yous loud and clear.  If they didn't, I daresay they wouldn't be back.
