Stauffer’s family was invited to the Phillies stadium for the game. “My family is extremely important to me. I’m just blessed my family was in attendance to see me receive this award. Philadelphia has always been 1st class: They flew my family in for the award, which included both hotels and tickets for 2 games. Our celebration was watching the game in the Presidential Suite. We enjoyed spending time with the Green family during the baseball game,” Stauffer said.

“I feel honored and privileged to receive the Dallas Green Award. Dallas meant so much to the city of Philadelphia and to all the people he worked with during his time in Major League Baseball,” added Stauffer.

“I would like to provide the community and surrounding community with on-trend, good quality clothing along with gift items at affordable prices,”said Sara Wendt, owner of REMEDY, a new clothing store located on the west side of the downtown square in Tecumseh.

“I want to provide everyone a place to come, grab a quick gift or outfit for that special occasion without having to drive for such items,” she added.

The idea of owning a clothing store came about when Sara lived in Omaha. She worked full-time at an advertising agency and part time at her favorite boutique in the Old Market. “Of course, at that time I spent more in the store than I made. I’ve always loved clothing and loved how a new piece of clothing made a person feel happy,” Sara said.
