On behalf of the Schafer family, I wish to extend a most profound thank-you to the Hill County Pachyderm Club and Mr. Andrew Brekke, president, for honoring our beloved Richard "Dick" Schafer at the recent Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner, Feb. 23, at the Duck Inn.
Dick Schafer was a founder of our local Pachyderm organization and is responsible for implementing the fun-filled 50/50 raffle as part of local Republican events.
The 50/50 raffle took place in Dick Schafer's honor as all in attendance applauded the esteemed memory of a six-decade, illustrious Havre businessman, humanitarian, philanthropist, civic and religious-minded citizen, veteran, husband, father, grandfather and friend.
He sadly passed from our midst on Dec. 6, 2013.
Selling the 50/50 tickets in Dick's honor were his good friends and Pachyderm brothers, Dr. David Abbott and Brad Lotton.
Please accept our immense and heartfelt gratitude from a bereaved family.
Mrs. Richard "Dick" (Carolaine) Schafer
