On Friday, Ron Kollman was presented with a new Weber Spirit-210 grill from Farver True Value. Ron was the winner of the Farver True Value Grimy Grill Giveaway. Ron’s “Grimy Grill” was purchased used in 1972 and ran on natural gas. After the grill’s burner went out for a second time, he was told there were no longer parts to repair it. Ron’s grill received 897 votes. In addition to the grill from Farver True Value, Ron also won a meat bundle supplied by Newton Fareway, a fire extinguisher from American Family Insurance — Bev Rossow Agency, a grill accessory set from Great Western Bank, a propane tank supplied by Mojo Cycling, and a gift certificate from Pit Stop Liquors. Pictured (from left) are Doug Balmer of Farver True Value, Bev Rossow of American Family Insurance, Heather Dawson of Great Western Bank, Ron Kollman, Fareway Meat Market Manager Todd Pletcher, Joe Urias of Mojo Cycling and Fareway Store Manager Steve Henscheid.
