Respect_for_Law-low-resThe Shawano Optimist Club celebrated Respect for Law week with a Steak Fry and Award Ceremony for two officers. Shawano Police Department recognized Shane Stange and the Shawano County Sheriff’s Department recognized Bill Uelman. Shawano Police Chief Mark Kohl made the presentation and told everyone in attendance why he chose Stange to be the officer of the year and the main reason was his activity with the kids and the community from young to old. Deputy Justin Hoffman stepped in for Shawano County Sheriff Adam Bieber and told everyone in attendance why Bill Uelman was chosen to be the recipient and once again it was his activities in the community and also his activity with the kids in the Bonduel Community.
