I would like to nominate Bessie Stanek for the Sunshine Award. Today, Tuesday, January 29th, Bessie will be turning 100 years old! Bessie has had a constant impact on her surrounding communities for many years. Whether it be the Women’s State Bowling Tournament, delivering Meals on Wheels, raising several generations of neighborhood kids, being present at local sporting events, or handing out thousands upon thousands of popcorn balls over the years for Halloween, Bessie stayed very active in the community and has made an impact on many lives.
Currently Bessie resides at Chippewa Manor in Chippewa Falls where she can be seen frequenting the hallways, playing cards, and socializing with her neighbors.
Thank you for considering Bessie Stanek for the Sunshine Award.
