Van and Bonnie – A Thank You To the Volunteers and Community

Courtesy of the City of Adel:


On behalf of the City, thank you to all those who helped make today’s Van & Bonnie Show broadcast from Adel a huge success.

There was quite a display of Adel history, personalities and pride today and much work went into the fantastic showcase for our community.

Thanks to the Service Clubs; Adel Rotary, Lions, and Kiwanis all lent a helping hand serving rolls and coffee. (I believe the Lions Club wins the prize for best volunteer turn out, but there were some pretty early rising Rotarians and Kiwanis).

A special thank you to event organizers Dean Westergaard, Linda Boettcher, and Jackie Orton and mastermind Tim Canney for all their work in orchestrating the morning’s activities. Also, a great big thanks to Greg Dufoe and the ADM School staff for use of the Commons, what a great place for this event.

There were also countless others lending a hand; from Patrick’s to Marie at Adel Flower and Gifts and Dan Juffer at Horizon Printing – thank you.

Adel was showcased in a big way today and it certainly was a community effort. Today was why we all choose to live in Adel.

Thank you all very much.
