On Saturday, July 12, at New Richland’s Farm and City Days annual breakfast, the 2014 Parade Grand Marshal was announced – or rather, we should say Grand Marshals.

This year’s Grand Marshals were 13 people who served in World War II: Gordon Peterson, Dr. Albert Flor, Buddy Shurson, Harold Thompson, Kenneth Eaton, Donald Smith, Audrene Smith, Don Bartness, Winston Evenson, Marie Querna, Eugene Warke, Richard Crumb, and Tony Arnfelt.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when the names of the veterans were announced. Many of them had no idea what was going on, even as their names were read. Some came with their uniform cap, like Dr. Flor, while others came in regular clothes.

Folks are seeing downtown New Richland in a whole new light these days — thanks to Bernie Anderson and the State Bank of New Richland.

SBNR and Anderson, the bank’s retired president, recently donated nearly $40,000 for “new” street lights along Broadway Ave., greatly enhancing the after-dark perspective on main street.

The globe-style lights and poles are of the vintage variety. Purchasing them for his hometown was the brainchild of Anderson.
