On Monday, Dec. 17, a bench was dedicated in honor of Col. Harry Yoder and the service he did for the country during his service with the Army Air Corp., and the U.S. Air Force.
His wife Ardeth, 92, who currently resides in Green Hills Retirement Community was in attendance alongside local Rotary Club members.
During the ceremony, Tom Farmer mentioned the many missions Yoder flew during his service years.
A special plaque has been placed on the bench recognizing not only Yoder’s years of service, but also his service to the community as a Rotarian, to which he was a member until his death two years ago.
Many important missions, both in the Pacific, and over Germany, were done by Yoder during his service. Farmer shared those important missions with the group assembled.
Col. Harry Yoder also was local Rotary Club President earlier in the nineties, and went on to serve the District, as District Governor for District 7430—empowering the forty some clubs in the local area to do the right things both here at home, and abroad to help our fellow man in our society.
Mayor Marianne Deery and Pastor Pearson of the Lutheran Church were in attendance of this event.
