If you are fortunate enough to have a good neighbor — one that helps out without being asked and does little special things for those around the neighborhood — you certainly want to sing their praises and acknowledge their kindness.

Buzzy Rechkemmer is a great neighbor in downtown Oelwein. He shovels snow for others, helps with events and any way that he can be helpful. The Positively Oelwein Committee recognized him last week with the April Clapper Award for his kindness and helpfulness to others.
