Red Kettle leadership changes

After 10 years of working together and thousands of dollars raised for those in need in Fillmore County, the Preston, Minn. Salvation Army “Red Kettle team” consisting of Barb Scheevel, Nancy Byrne, Sue Hovey, and Sheila Craig are passing the torch.

All four women say they have enjoyed working with the Red Kettle and say that the residents of Fillmore County are very generous. In the ten years they worked as a team the total amount raised was $26,190.05, which is impressive and shows how kind and compassionate people are in the area.

Scheevel says “it wasn’t hard work” as the time slots for ringing bells filled up very quickly with those eager to help. Each year the Fillmore Central sixth grade rings bells, which has become a tradition since the team took over leadership.

The Fillmore County Red Kettle Campaign coincides each year with the Holiday Open House at F & M Community Bank in Preston. This works out very well as many people stop by for the Open House and have come to expect to hear the bells ringing as they arrive. When the bank closes for the day the red kettle moves across the street in front of Preston Foods. Each of the businesses are great and invite the bell ringers inside to warm up if they like.

The women have made many memories through the Red Kettle campaign whether it is the year that school was called off because of a snowstorm and the women, along with some other brave souls, stuck it out and filled the time slots to ring bells, or the so-called “meetings” the four had which always happened to take place over a meal.

They enjoyed ringing bells together and would spend the entire time singing, dancing, and laughing. Byrne notes “it was always fun” even though they say they may have embarrassed themselves a little but “it was for a good cause”, said Craig.

“It wasn’t a hard task, it is just time to move on,” stated Byrne. Whether the work was difficult or not, these four ladies spent many hours to help those in need and always did it with a smile.

Taking over the reins of the Salvation Army Red Kettle Drive in Preston will be a team of volunteers from F & M Community Bank, which includes Kate Serfling, Brenda Reicks, and Allison Whalen, who just took over in November of this year.

Since the transfer of leadership was so recent, Serfling, Reicks, and Whalen are just getting their feet wet in le .....
