Legends ‘set the bar high’
Dave Broman, executive director of the Howard County Historical Society, sends this Cheer to the community:
“Thank you for supporting the Howard County Hall of Legends. The 2013 induction banquet was a happy occasion and a well-deserved recognition of six remarkable people.
“Those who made the evening possible include our sponsors: the Ivy Tech Foundation, Liberty Financial Group, Haynes International, Bucheri, McCarty & Metz CPAs, Smith Financial, Kokomo Tribune, the Purdue Alumni Association, Kokomo Perspective, the City of Kokomo, Humphrey Printing, Indiana University Kokomo, Kokomo Opalescent Glass, Moore’s Home Health and Medical Supply, and St. Joseph St. Vincent Hospital.
“Thank you to the Hampton Inn in Kokomo for providing accommodations for Bob Knowling and family, and to Pastariffic for its wonderful service and attention to detail. The media did a wonderful job of telling the community about our legends, and all deserve gratitude: The Kokomo Tribune, Kokomo Perspective, Kokomo Herald, WWKI, WIOU and Z92.5. We owe a great debt to Craig Dunn and the Legends Committee, along with the many volunteers of the Howard County Historical Society for their time, energy and ideas.
“Thanks to everyone who attended — and to the remarkable individuals who are now officially Howard County Legends: Del Demaree, David Foster, John Hingst, Lt. Gen. William Kepner, Bob Knowling and E.P. Severns. They set the bar high, making us all better through their service and example.”
Thanks for to-your-door service
Gayle Maudlin of Kokomo sends this Cheer for the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library:
“I am unable to get out like I used to when I was younger, but the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library offers a service that brings me books of the genre I like and picks them up when I’m done. I told a woman who works there the kind of books I like, and much to my delight they are delivered to me.
