COUNCILMAN SCHERZ ANNOUNCES WINNER OF 7th ANNUAL FRED SCHERZ SR. MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FOR VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY SERVICE!



Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., Councilman on the Verona Town Board in Verona, NY, announced today that he has selected Kierstyn Kahler (daughter of Jeff & Patty Kahler) of Verona as the winner of the 7th Annual Fred Scherz Sr. Memorial Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service.  Ms. Kahler has volunteered at the Verona Park Program, the Special Olympics, VVS football games, and Madison-Oneida Camp Lookout.  Via LEAD VVS, Ms. Kahler has volunteered at fundraisers, track meets and done PTO babysitting. In addition, Ms. Kahler was involved in clean up after the United Dance Academy’s Dance Recital for National Honor Society.  As winner of this award, Ms. Kahler received a certificate of accomplishment and a check for $250. 

“Upon reviewing Ms. Kahler’s application, I was impressed,” said Scherz.  “It’s obvious Kierstyn cares about not only the Verona community, but the surrounding areas as well, as her volunteerism has extended beyond the Town of Verona.  Not only did she help each day at the Verona Park Program, she also attended Driver’s Education class every other day (and passed), so she was obviously quite busy.  Besides being a hard worker with all her volunteerism, she also excelled in the classroom as she has been on the VVS high honor roll since 9th grade. I congratulate Kierstyn for not only winning the scholarship, but for also setting a great example for others to follow.  On a personal note, I know my Dad would’ve been impressed with Ms. Kahler’s on-going volunteer efforts!”

COUNCILMAN FRITZ SCHERZ TO HOST 5th ANNUAL THANK YOU DINNER FOR VETERANS!


Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., Councilman on the Verona Town Board, will hold his 5th Annual Thank You Dinner for all Town of Verona Veterans and their families on Wednesday, November 11th from 5pm to 6pm at the Verona Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6811 (4928 Spring Rd.) in Verona. 

“I have much appreciation for Veterans and thought this would be a special way to thank them again,” said Scherz.  “The last four years I’ve held this event, there was a nice turnout. It was great to see Veterans of various ages attend, share their stories with each other, and even make some new friends.  Also, I want people to know that as with last four years I’ve held this dinner, no town funds are being used for it whatsoever as this is not a government-based event.  Rather, I am personally covering the cost because this is just something I thought would be nice to do again. In fact, my family looks forward to this annual event. So, if you’re a Veteran from the Town of Verona, I sure hope to see you and your family at my Thank You Dinner!” 

While reservations are not required, Veterans who plan on attending are asked to contact Fritz at
fritz@fritzscherz.com and/or (315) 363-3509 by November 9th so he can better plan on how much food to have. For more information on Fritz, go to:  www.fritzscherz.com, Fritz’s Twitter feed at: www.twitter.com/fritzscherz, and/or his blog at: www.fritzscherz.blogspot.com.
