Sibley, Iowa — A member of the Sibley Rotary Club has been recognized as one of ten “Rotarians of Distinction” from 1800 Rotarians in a four-state region.
Arlene Kuehl was honored for her volunteer efforts through Rotary, and outside of the organization, as well. According to Sibley Rotary President Ray Schuster, Kuehl was the first female to join the Sibley Rotary club twenty-nine years ago. Schuster says she’s been the club’s Secretary for twenty-eight of those twenty-nine years.
Schuster tells us that Kuehl has been instrumental in organizing the club’s fund drives, she’s a key in volunteering for New Beginnings, she takes part in fair judging, as well as serving on the Board of her church, along with numerous other volunteer organizations.
The Sibley club nominated her for the Rotarians of Distinction honor because, as Schuster tells KIWA, “Arlene is just involved in so much stuff.”
Kuehl received a certificate recognizing her level of service to Rotary, and to the community of Sibley that was so outstanding that it deserved special recognition, according to Rotary District Governor Dave Lorenz.
Arlene and her husband, David, have one daughter, Katie, and live in Sibley.
