You have heard the old adage, it takes a village to raise a child, but what does it take to raise a village into a successful community? Civilizations can rise or fall but for the actions of a few individuals. Last week, I had the privilege of being present when the Jordan Commercial Club named Mike Shaw the 2015 Honored Guest of the Year.
Jordan resident and Mayor Mike Shaw has been selected to join an impressive group of people. Shaw joins the ranks of people that include Paul Sunder, Dick Ames, Willy Pauly, Jim Terwedo, Deb Pauly, Dr. Joe Pekarna, Gerald and Anna Sandey, Johanna Deusterman and John and Wanda Breimhorst, to name but a few. What do they all have in common? They were all selected as Jordan Commercial Club Honored Guests at one point in time.
