Madison needs more business leaders like DeLon Mork. Now I’ve known DeLon a very long time. Just tonight when we stopped in at the DQ for a quick treat after church, DeLon was out in the restaurant talking to his customers. I don’t care much for politics: whether you are Republican or Democrat doesn’t make that much of a difference to me. What matters is getting out and making a difference in your community to make it a better place. DeLon doesn’t do things for personal glory. He uses the Dairy Queen to continue the legacy of giving taught to him by his parents.
You’ll see many like DeLon in Madison volunteering their time, talent and money. Drive by the soccer fields in the next few weeks and you will find SoccerMadison’s Spring season in full swing. Jeff Boldt has brought another sport to the young people of Madison. Joining Jeff are many sponsors and volunteer coaches. Baseball, softball and tee all are just around the corner. It takes a huge crew to make all of this happen.
There are those out there that only dwell on the shortcomings of Lake County and what we don’t have. I say that Madison and the surrounding area is a great place to live, work and play.
ElizaBeth and I took these shots of DeLon for an upcoming feature story in a magazine.
