Dec. 14, 2017 – Washington Co., WI – A nice tribute to Pete Rettler this week as he was recognized by the Agricultural & Industrial Society for his nine years of leadership.
Rettler was introduced by Washington County Fair Park executive director Kellie Boone who presented Rettler with a commemorative clock. “We got this for you for all your great leadership and support for AIS,” said Boone.
Rettler then praised his mentors and other volunteers on AIS.
“I grew up on a farm in Hartford and always attended the fair in Slinger and I always wanted to come to this one,” he said.
Rettler gave kudos to former Fair Park executive director Sandy Lang and “all the dedicated individuals who spent so much time volunteering” including Ken Miller, Robby Robrahn, Tony Warren, Roger Kist, and Marilyn Merten.
“I’m most proud in this last year when you try to replace Sandy Lang and we had a search committee and we knew we had big shoes to fill and whole AIS owes Kellie Boone a debt of gratitude,” said Rettler.
The new incoming AIS president is Tracy Oestreich.
