‘Citizen of Year’ sends thanks to supporters for nomination
To the Editor,
I was recently one of five individuals nominated for the 2013 Daily Telegram’s Citizen of the Year. I want to thank several people for the nomination.
First, I want to thank Charlene Wielfaert, former director and founder of The Daily Bread of Lenawee soup kitchen for nominating me. I was surprised — what a great honor to be selected! It’s a great pleasure to serve the community and I hope I can reach out to others in the future.
I also want to thank April Lienau, president of The Daily Bread, Bill Ross from Civitan, and Libby Zilke from The Department of Aging, for all their great compliments about me. I want to thank Vicki Schmucker (photographer) and Myndi Milliken (reporter) for their excellent work from The Daily Telegram. Lastly, I want to thank family, friends, and citizens of Lenawee for showing me their support. I am trying to give back to this wonderful community and I think I am doing God’s work.
I have a few quotes I live by: “treat others the way you would want to be treated”, and “be kind to one another.” I am proud to live and volunteer in Lenawee County!
Thanks again Lenawee county! God Bless.
