Brian Weismantel of Herreid has been chosen as a Hometown Hero by Modern Woodmen.
A meal was held Wednesday, Feb. 20, at the Herreid Super Stop in Brian’s honor. Brian was to have received his recognition at this time, but he was unable to attend because one of his services to the community pulled him away.
Bruce Brandner, Modern Woodmen agent, along with Melissa Weisbeck and Susan Goehring, Brian’s coworkers at the Campbell County Bank, presented Brian with his award on Thursday, Feb. 21.
Along with this award Modern Woodmen donates $100 to the charity of the recipient’s choice. Brian choose the Herreid Fire Department to receive the money.
Brian moved back to his hometown of Herreid on about Jan 1, 2008. Since moving back, he has become very involved in his local community.
