OUR LOCAL HOMETOWN HERO WON A NEW, HIGH EFFICIENCY BRYANT FURNACE!
Merrill Sheet Metal Works is pleased to announce David Szeto of Merrill as our 2019 Bryant® Community Hero. David was nominated by his wife, Frances, for his unwavering ability to say “yes” every time he’s asked to help serve his community.
“He is pastor of St. John Lutheran Church, often working 14-hour days, visiting the members of the church who are sick or dying,” Frances wrote in her nomination. “He recently agreed to be the chaplain for our fire department”.
We are proud to honor David for his hard work, passion, and determination to do “Whatever It Takes” to serve the community. In addition to the honor, David was also rewarded with a brand-new Bryant high-efficiency furnace.
Congratulations, David, and thank you for all that you do.
Merrill Sheet Metal Works has proudly participated in the Bryant Community Heroes program for the past four years. It’s a great opportunity to recognize a local hero in the community and reward him or her with a new furnace installation. This year, we are happy to announce that Diana Wendt of Merrill is our 2018 Bryant Community Hero and the worthy recipient of a new high-efficiency furnace from Bryant®.
Diana was nominated as a Bryant Community Hero by Merrill resident, Sue, who cited her generous and giving nature. Sue describes Diana as someone who “helps anyone who needs it.” Diana regularly gives back to the community by helping with funeral meals at her church, singing in the choir, cooking meals for hospital patients and their families, and sewing quilts and blankets for those in need.
Everyone at Merrill Sheet Metal thanks you, Diana, for volunteering so much of your time to this wonderful community we all call home.
For the third year in a row, Merrill Sheet Metal Works had the pleasure of participating in Bryant Community Heroes, a program that rewards a local hero in the community with a new furnace installation. We are pleased to announce that Chris Saady of Irma is our 2017 Bryant Community Hero and the well-deserving recipient of a new high-efficiency furnace from Bryant®.
Chris was nominated by Jonelle of Wausau, who commends him for his service to our country. She said: “Chris has served multiple tours to various parts of the Middle East with the U.S. military. Chris was injured while serving overseas and is unable to work. His passion and sacrifice for our country makes him a hero.”
We are proud to recognize and support such a worthy individual. Congratulations, Chris, and thank you for your honorable service!
Merrill Sheet Metal Works is proud to announce that Jill Taglienti of Birnamwood was selected as our local 2016 Bryant Community Hero. Our team installed a brand-new, high efficiency furnace in Jill’s home as recognition for her dedication to the community.
Jill was nominated by her mother, Karen, for her remarkable devotion to teaching second graders in the Wausau community for over 11 years. The nomination couldn’t have come at a better time as the furnace in Jill’s older farmhouse struggled to keep going every winter. In the nomination, her mother emphasized how impactful this award would be for Jill and her family: “It would be a wonderful blessing to them if they were chosen to receive a new furnace.”
A hometown hero like Jill was a clear choice for nomination and she was selected as the winner by members of the Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce, Merrill Fire Department, and Merrill Police Department. The Community Heroes program was designed to reward local community heroes doing “Whatever It Takes” to make a positive impact. These individuals put in the time and energy to make a difference in the lives of others.
Dear Merrill Sheet Metal,
Thank you for the recognition as a “Hometown Hero” and the wonderful gift of the Bryant furnace. My family and I are extremely grateful to Merrill Sheet Metal, Bryant, and Mr. Kurt Wendt for this honor. As a teacher, I work to provide my students with the best education possible and have never expected any awards or accolades. Your gift was an unexpected surprise! I hope you have a wonderful 2017.
Sue Kunkel was our local Community Hero last year and awarded a new Bryant furnace and installation from Merrill Sheet Metal, in conjunction with Auer Steel and Bryant. The Community Heroes program was designed to recognize and honor people like Sue who have had a significant impact on the community. Who will win the furnace this year?
My husband and I would like to thank Bryant and its representative, Merrill Sheet Metal, and their owner Kurt Wendt for this honor. It came at a most opportune time as we were just talking about replacing our over 30 year old furnace which was in need of repair.
The many volunteer things I do for our community comes from my love of this city and the desire to see things improve. Bryant has improved our life with this new furnace and honor.
