Rotary Member of the Week
Jim Reigel
Jim was born and raised on a dairy farm 7 miles outside of Marshfield. He graduated from Columbus High School and then went to Mid-State Technical College for an associate degree in mechanical design. He was then off to the military and spent 20 years in the Wisconsin Army National Guard. Jim joined Paget Equipment in 1977 and purchased the company in 1985. At that time, the company had 11 employees and sales of just over $500,000 per year. Today Paget has 60 employees and sales of $22 million per year and is expanding. Jim’s passion is working with and for veterans. He joined the American Legion to make sure what happened to the veterans after Vietnam would never happen again. And thankfully, Jim says, our current veterans are not facing the same problems today. After joining the American Legion, Jim discovered all of the great programs that the American Legion has and in 2008 and 2009 he served as the state commander for the Wisconsin American Legion. Jim served as President of Marshfield Rotary Club for the 2013-2014 year.

Service Above Self Award presented to Jim Reigel
Jim Reigel was awarded Marshfield Rotary Club's Service Above Self Award on Monday, April 27. Jim & Diane's daughters, Amy, Sherry, and Becky spoke lovingly about what it was like to have a father as dedicated to public service as is Jim. Jim's brother Bill spoke of what it was like to grow up in a family of 12 children, and Bill also described how Jim came to be owner of Paget Equipment. Bill noted, too, that both he and Jim are alive today thanks to organ donors. Bill had a heart transplant 25 years ago, and a couple years ago Jim received stem cell transplants donated by their sister, Shirley. Mike Feier spoke of Jim's considerable service to the American Legion, both the local chapter and as state president. Past Service Above Self recipient Shirley Mook detailed Jim's great service through Rotary. Past Service Above Self recipient Dr. Tom Nikolai awarded Jim with his fourth Paul Harris Fellowship. Club President Roberta DeVetter awarded Jim the Service Above Self plaque. Jim's response was heartfelt and emotional and drew a standing ovation.

The Service Above Self Award is based on the following: "The nominee must have demonstrated exemplary humanitarian service, in any form and at any level, with an emphasis on personal volunteer efforts and active involvement in helping others through Rotary. Service rendered by the nominee through Rotary must have been on a continuing basis. The award will not be given solely in recognition of one's performance in an elected or appointed Rotary assignment. Personal financial contributions to the Rotary Foundation or any individual project are not relevant for this award."
