Ellen Lemke of Bedford named Iowan of the Day
DES MOINES — The Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation and Cookies Food Products present Ellen Lemke of Bedford as an Iowan of the Day for the 2013 Iowa State Fair.
Seven days a week, Lemke volunteers in the Bedford community. She sings in the choir, is a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and volunteers as a guide at the Taylor County Historical Museum. Lemke was featured in an “Our Iowa” magazine article where she shared her secret recipe to life and volunteering.
“I try to stay busy,” she said. “I found out a long time ago that you can’t just sit around and twiddle your thumbs and expect to enjoy life. I don’t care how old you are, you can make life interesting if you try.”
