Westhoff true example of rural living

Dear Editor,

The Westhoff American Legion Hall has served the Westhoff community faithfully for almost seventy years, but just recently, some significant repairs were necessary to ensure it could continue its role as a community center into the future. Westhoff is a true example of rural living and its citizens know what it means to look out for their neighbors. Due to the COVID pandemic causing a lack of rentals and bingo games being discontinued a decade or so ago, the Legion’s existence has depended on donations to pay monthly bills and any needed repairs.

The citizens of Westhoff came together the past two weekends to host a community-wide garage sale to tackle repairs head-on. We would like to thank the following people for their donations of baked goods, garage sale items, or working and supporting the sale. Laborers and donors included: Melinda and Gary Weikel, Andrew Weikel, Josh Nessel, Richard Gantt, Cindy Burnett, Judy and Harland Schlenker, Sue and Tammy Lilbrich, Terri and Kenneth Boothe, Rodney Nolte, Laurie Pokluda, Kendrick and Stacy Baros, Kristye Kahlich, Cindy and Kent Kilbrich, Christy Cornell, Tommy and Lynette Schlenker, Clay and Roberta Baros, Kyle and Sabrina Hopkins, David and Margot Cornelius, Jane and Steve Scott, Cheryl and Gregg Bunjes, Adam and Kara Gonzales, Shana Burge, Lynn May, David Baros, Mitch and Kathryn Hulverson, Eileen Barth, Donna Shelton, Denis and Sheryl Mueller, Ottie and Lanette Gips, HR Krause, Beverly Mazicek, and anyone else we unintentionally omitted. We would also like to thank all of our patrons who so graciously came by and purchased items. Truly, it takes a village to keep rural America going. You have all been a blessing to Westhoff, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity. We raised nearly $3,000 in this endeavor.
