Waukon Wellness Center receives granite bench in memory of Bob and Bernie Heffern ...

“KEEP SMILING - Remembering Two Lives Well Lived” are the words engraved on a new granite bench donated to the Waukon Wellness Center in memory of Bob and Bernie Heffern by their children and families, some of whom are pictured above with Waukon Park and Recreation Wellness Director Jeremy Strub. Bob and Bernie’s enthusiasm for making a difference in the lives of others and their community was apparent to all who knew them. Their appreciation of the Waukon Wellness Center for its physical and social benefits ran deep as well, particularly after moving to Waukon from their vigorous farm life to a much less physical lifestyle. The bench is located in the north entrance to the Waukon Wellness Center and is available to seniors and young alike as they are waiting for their ride or just needing a place to sit and chat.
