The big event which made 2017 a wonderful year for the BRF-EEF was the challenge issued by Al and Jeanette Lahmayer. They donated $25,000 to EEF and an additional $25,000 if BRF-EEF could match that amount in donations from the community. Donors doubled the challenge amount, raising $52,771! The BRF-EEF balance now stands just short of $500,000! Thanks to Al and Jeanette, BRF-EEF fund drive organizers, Mary Jo Radcliffe, Lori Chown, Marilyn Hagen, and all the BRF-EEF donors.

In 2013 the physicians of Krohn Clinic created a fund to award an annual $2,000 scholarship to a local student seeking further education in a health related field. The doctors also recognized that this would be a way for them to honor their predecessors and peers. Since that time, the community has come to use this fund as a way to not only help local students, but also pay tribute to medical professionals who have touched their lives.
