THE WALTER ZELLER FELLOWSHIP
Our club not only awards Zeller awards to existing club members, but also members in the community who exemplify the mission. Jerry proudly awarded a Zeller Award to John Maitland, who was in attendance at Monday’s meeting. Congratulations, John, and thank you for your support!
Ben Green with Rusty Depew
Benoni "Ben" Green is a special Kiwaniian. He is a veteran of WWII as well as a POW. He worked at Beich’s Candy Company for 41 years and has 3 children. He is known as the “granddaddy of Bloomington / Normal Tennis.” He has left a lasting impression with ISU as he is in the hall of fame and has endowed a scholarship there.
He served as president of the Bloomington Kiwanis Club in 1972 and 1973. During these years the Normal Kiwanis Club was introduced and the ISU Circle K Club was chartered. We recognize Benoni Green with the Zeller Award as well as the 600 lives saved with the EliMiNate project.
