Four individuals who are making a difference in the Whittemore community were recently presented with $50 Cenex “Tanks of Thanks” gift cards.

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

Each month, 100 people win a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card from Cenex. Beth Buscherfeld, Whittemore Cenex manager for MaxYield Cooperative, recently presented the awards.

Joy Metzger, who works at the Whittemore Public Library, is an advocate for the many youth programs at the library. She helps coordinate the summer reading and after school programs, going above and beyond in her efforts to promote these events.

Bob Meyer volunteers his time by lending a hand to elderly citizens in Whittemore. He frequently stops by with fresh fruits and produce and provides transportation for their doctor visits.

An employee of the City of Whittemore, James Zinnel was recognized for his efforts in keeping the town running smoothly, usually with a smile on his face.

Gary Person, who works at the Whittemore Cenex store, is known for good-natured personality. Young and old alike look forward to interacting with Gary whenever they visit, and many clients appreciate his client-first attitude.
