 2nd Quarter Hometown Hero

There is a famous quote by Gustav Nossal that states, “Community leadership is the courage, creativity and capacity to inspire participation, development and sustainability for strong communities.”

In Moundridge, one need look no further than the Fisher family for proof of that adage.  Whether it is Gary, Rosemary or Wayne, they  are all very civic minded and their commitment to the community is  visible daily.

Gary currently serves as mayor in Moundridge – having been first elected to the city council in 1990.  During his tenure, the city replaced two small elevated water storage tanks with a new water tower and he has been active in the community’s five-year strategic plan, which most recently saw the addition of 57 residential units.  When not overseeing community activities, he has been a member of the chamber of commerce, a founding member of the Moundridge Arts Council, treasurer of the Moundridge Historical Association and was scoutmaster of a local Boy Scout troop for some 20 years.

“Mayor Fisher has been a very passionate and active elected official during his years of ervice,” wrote Moundridge City Administrator Randy Frazer.  “He cares for the employees, visitors to and members of the community.”

You’ll often find Rosemary Fisher working as secretary at the Moundridge Arts Council, where local artists are recognized and provided a venue to showcase their talents.   But, that’s only one  element of her community service.

She also helps with the annual Black Kettle Festival and has been instrumental in applications for grants, funding and donations for the Moundridge Historical Association.  She was  a Sunday school teacher and Girl Scout leader for many years and has  been an integral part of  The Homestead Trail Celebration since it’s origination. 

“Service to community is something that is taught in many families,” daughter Sydney Fisher wrote.  “I was raised in that kind of family.”

For Gary and Rosemary’s son, Wayne, volunteering in the community has been as much a part of his life as it has for his parents. 

A 1978 graduate at Moundridge High School, Wayne has served on the chamber of commerce for 17 years, serving as president for four terms. 

“As a citizen, (Wayne) is loyal,” wrote Lory Cross.  “It is easy to see that the community is strong and well kept.  It takes willing individuals, like Wayne Fisher.”

He has repeatedly volunteered as a Moundridge High School debate and forensic tournament judge and timekeeper and helped initiate the David Koller Junior Diabetes Bullhead Tournament. He has emceed at both the Black Kettle Festivals and Homestead Trail Celebrations. 

Lory Fisher moved to Moundridge in April of 2016. It didn’t take her long to embrace this town as “home”. By November, she was heavily involved in the creation of the Moundridge arts Council with Rosemary Fisher. They both worked in getting the “mission statement”, by-laws and grants written.  In January of this year she was nominated as president of the Moundridge Arts Council.  The use of the old Lumberyard building was introduced, and Lory and Rosemary were the driving force to get it cleaned out and remodeled. The grand opening was April 1st 2017.   There are venues being planned, workshops that will be set-up, and a new awareness of the arts in Moundridge.

As a result of the Fisher family’s efforts, they are recognized as this quarter’s Hometown Hero by The Citizens State Bank/Home State Bank.

Hometown Hero is a quarterly award, sponsored by The Citizens State Bank and Home State Bank, honoring area residents who make a difference in their communities.  Recipients receive a framed certificate and  a gift card .  Submissions for future awardees may be made at any branch of The Citizens State Bank or Home State Bank locations.
