Scandia Mayor Christine Maefsky presented a Good Neighbor Award Proclamation to area resident Tom Helke at the August 20, 2019 city council meeting.
The Scandia Good Neighbor Award honors individuals, businesses, and civic groups who make our community a better place to live.
Tom Helke was nominated by Jim and Lynne Moratzka, who wrote how Tom kindly volunteers his talent and equipment to assist with Gammelgarden’s maintenance and events, cleans up roadside ditches, has graciously rescued birds and pets from tall trees, along with many other considerate acts, all carried out with a positive demeanor. In addition, Mayor Maefsky described how Tom generously assisted the City with clean up from the July tornado.
Mayor Maefsky expressed thanks and appreciation to Tom for his many qualities of being a Scandia Good Neighbor.
