Steve came to us at a time when the Credit Union needed Leadership. His strength and knowledge set direction for us to be able to carry out our vision to insure the future of the Credit Union.
Steve manages the workplace with trust and respect that motivates us to get the work done, but he also knows how to let loose and enjoy the day or moment of time.
Each of us have benefited from Steve’s strong leadership. He has opened doors for all of us with his encouragement and support. Steve strives for perfection, not to benefit himself but to motivate us to be our best and reach our full potential. Our team has achieved many goals working under Steve as CEO during the past 7-years.
Steve has become an inspiration to many as he fought through his battle with COVID. He has had to face many challenges, but with his strong faith and determination he is here with us today.
While happy for Steve as he embarks on this new chapter in his life it is also with sadness that we say good-bye. We wish you the very best and enjoy your family.
For these reasons we choose to honor Steve DeBoer with the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 2022 1st Quarter Boss of the Quarter award.
During the award presentation, a donation in Steve’s honor was also presented to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization.
Our congratulations go to Steve DeBoer for being named as the Le Mars Chamber of Commerce “Boss Of The Quarter.”
Kemp’s Donate Milk Products To Food Banks Of Siouxland
(Sioux City) — Kemp’s Dairy has donated a truckload of milk to the Food Bank of Siouxland. Kemp’s spokesperson Matthew Rohrich says his company has partnered with Fareway Food Stores to donate 35,900 containers of shelf stable “Giving Cow” chocolate milk to the food bank.
Jacob Wanderscheid, the director of the Food Bank of Siouxland, says the 12-month shelf life of the single serve 8-ounce packs of ultra-high temperature pasteurized milk solves major storage issues with dairy products.
The Food Bank will distribute the milk across 11 counties in northwest Iowa and eastern Nebraska. It’s part of 800,000 “Giving Cow” milks to be distributed across Iowa, as well as Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. The “Giving Cow” milks are specifically designed for food shelves and children backpack programs to fight hunger and will not be sold in stores.
