“Tanks of Thanks” Presented to Mary Smith

Mary Smith of Fostoria was recently presented with a $50 Cenex “Tanks of Thanks” gift card.

The Tanks of Thanks program rewards Cenex clients in local communities that go the extra mile with free fuel. Smith was nominated by MaxYield Cooperative, which owns and operates the Cenex convenience store in Fostoria.

Each month, 100 people win a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card from Cenex. Nancy Beck of Fostoria Cenex presented the award.

Smith, a special education teacher in Ruthven, was a key volunteer during the community’s centennial celebration. She took charge of much of the fundraising and went the extra mile to see that two new signs for the Fostoria community were installed.

MaxYield Cooperative is a local, member-owned cooperative that operates Cenex convenience stores in West Bend, Whittemore, and Fostoria and also provides Cenex fuels to area farmers and clients.
