The Blanchester Chapter of Modern Woodmen of America honored Harry Brumbaugh for his lifetime of service to the Blanchester community and to Clinton County at a dinner held at General Denver Tuesday, Sept. 10.
Blanchester Chapter Coordinator Dan Mayo said, “Harry is a delight to work with as we have served together on the Board at Ohio Living Cape May. He brings refreshing energy to the meetings and has served as board president for over 15 years.”
Harry was in education all his life teaching in the Blanchester School District. One of his students was there at the dinner to help honor him.
Harry also was the Mayor of Blanchester and has recently been appointed back on Blanchester Village Council to fill a vacant seat.
Harry also is active in his church, the Grace United Methodist Church, along with his wife of 53 years, Judy, where Harry currently has assumed the role of Trustees Chair.
They also enjoy traveling, especially to Sonoma Valley to visit one of their daughters and to visit the Mayo Family Winery which was developed by Mayo’s uncle about 15 years ago.
As part of the Hometown Hero program, Modern Woodmen is donating $100 to the charity of his choice. Every year, Modern Woodmen looks for people who go above and beyond to help others and honors them as a Home Town Hero. Brumbaugh is donating the $100 to the Duke University Medical Center in memory of Eric Paradis, Heather’s husband.
