ST. MARYS - The Bavarian Hills recently hosted their third annual Bavarian Hills Honoree Dinner recognizing some of the people who volunteered their labor during the earliest stages of building the golf course and clubhouse.
For 2011, the honorees were David Herzing, Dick Schneider, the late Alan Mulcahy and the late Art “Spider” Krieg.
Herzing’s godson, Dennis “Bucky” Lecker, spoke to the crowd about the way Herzing is able to quietly “get things done’ without seeking the publicity some would expect for his efforts.
Dick Schneider’s daughter, Linda Burgess, spoke on behalf of her father’s dedication and love for the Bavarian Hills from the standpoint of working there or enjoying the golf course.
For Krieg, his son-in-law, Roger Hanes, spoke about his “second father’s” devotion to the landscaping of the golf course and his meticulous care for the birds and the birdfeeders around the property.
Mulcahy’s son Gary spoke next. He spoke too about his father’s dedication to the Bavarian Hills, as well as the time his mother, Gloria, spent volunteering to help build the first 18-hole public golf course in Elk County.
