50 years and counting Photos by Steve Spoden A RECEPTION HONORING CAROL BAUER’S 50 years of service to the Village of Lombard was held in the Community Room of the Lombard Village Hall Thursday, Feb. 4. Although Bauer, as village executive coordinator would usually plan an event such as this, that was not the case last week. Even though she knew about the reception, the evening provided a number of surprises that added to the festivities. One of the highlights was Bauer’s daughter, Deborah Niehenke (third row, left photo), who lives in Washington state and “Skyped” with her mom during the reception. Another big surprise was when (bottom left photo, l.) Karen Schwarz of Heartland Blood Centers announced the village’s upcoming April 13 blood drive will be named after Bauer, who has coordinated the village blood drives since 1993.
