Hefner Named 2015 Citizen of the Year


Bucky Hefner of Lakeside State Bank was named Chelsea Citizen of the Year at the Chelsea Chamber of Commerce Installation Banquet held on March 19, 2015.

"He is a dedicated member of this society," was the comment coming from Ted Foster as he prepared to name Hefner as this year's recipient for the coveted Citizen of the Year award.  "He is involved in countless activities around the community from sports, science fairs, to supporting local businesses and charities.  He is a member of the Lion's Club and is on the school board.  He cares very deeply about the community that he was raised in.  He is an active member in his church and is not shy about helping anyone in need."

As Hefner accepted the award he spoke of the good things and good people in Chelsea.  "It takes no effort for bad news to spread.  But, we've got good things going on here in Chelsea and we need to celebrate those good things.  We need to celebrate our kids, our schools and support them 100%."

Committed to Growing a Greater Community for Future Generations
