Sadler named WU Main Street Iowa Volunteer of the Year


By Chris Deback


Many people have helped make the West Union Trunk-‘n’-Treat event a success.


One such person who has helped the event grow in participation to over 600 children attending the event this past Halloween is Jessica Sadler. It is her hard work on this event and other West Union Chamber — A Main Street Community Promotions Committee events such as the Community Awards Banquet that has garnered her the distinction of West Union’s Main Street Iowa Volunteer of the Year this year. 


“I enjoy volunteering and helping to plan the different events the community can come and enjoy,” Sadler said. “I don’t do it for any recognition, but I am honored to receiving this award.”


Sadler has been the Chamber’s Promotions Committee’s Trunk-‘n’-Treat Subcommittee Chairman for four years, helping plan and run the successful annual event. She has also helped plan the annual Fourth of July Celebration, Divas and Dining, and Playin’ on the Plaza. 


Co-owner of McJ’s Embroidery in West Union with her husband, Bob, she also enjoys volunteering with her kids activities, such as the Eldorado Eagles 4-H Club, when she can. She is also an active member of Holy Name Catholic Church in West Union. 


There’s less than three days to get your tickets to the West Union Community Awards Banquet set for Saturday, Jan. 19, at the West Union Events Center. 


Don’t miss your chance to “Walk the Red Carpet” with the other West Union Community members being honored for their volunteerism: Business of the Year — Baumler Implements; Education — Kara Wedemeier; Community Service — Ann Hutchens; Youth — Thomas Sadler; Historical Preservation — Meg Moellering; Health — Beatrice Guenther; Religion — Tom Roys; and Parks and Rec — Ron Crooker. 


The Fayette County Union will also honor the 2018 Citizen of the Year Amie Johansen. Jessica Sadler has been named the West Union Main Street Iowa Volunteer of the Year. 


The event will start with a social hour at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. with the awards ceremony to follow. 


Tickets are $25 through 4:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18, and no tickets will be sold at the door.
