CITIZEN OF ACHIEVEMENT–Alan Mueth was presented with the 2020 Citizen of Achievement Award by the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce last week. Pictured at the presentation are Chamber Directors Gina Reinhold, Julie Stern and Tami Pautler, Mueth, and Directors Brad Mayberry and Lisa Woods.
Normally, the Red Bud Citizen of Achievement Award is presented at the annual Red Bud Chamber of Commerce dinner. However with this year’s dinner cancelled, the recipient was surprised with the honor last week.
On May 25, while at The Office for what he thought was just a family birthday dinner, the Chamber’s board of directors completely surprised Alan Mueth.
Chamber Treasurer Brad Mayberry presented Mueth with a plaque that stated it was presented “In honor and with deep appreciation of faithful, devoted and valuable service you have given to the community of Red Bud.” Mayberry then read the letter nominating Mueth for the award.
The letter stated, “Alan has been a leader in the City of Red Bud and community all his life. He had a devotion for the history of the area and has often portrayed the early founders of Red Bud.
