Yoders receive Pride of Bremen award

BREMEN — For more than 16 years the Town of Bremen has awarded the Pride of Bremen award to owners of homes and businesses in the community who have made improvements to make them more attractive. The nominees are suggested by town board members, and other town officials or residents.  
David and Jane Yoder have lived in Bremen for 30 years. They bought the property at 415 N. Whitlock in 2009 and spent two years of diligently working to make it the beautiful home it is today. Their hard work paid off and has earned them the Pride of Bremen award.
The Yoders tore down the old detached garage and build a new one, put up all new siding, replaced the roof and the windows, and also replaced the flooring and the cabinets.
“I have worked for 30 years in woodworking and making cabinets,” said David Yoder. “I did all the work myself. …We were surprised to receive this award, but very happy about it.”
