Each week the Pipestone Flyer team comprised of writers, editors, publishers, layout artists, ad designers, sales people, printer and book keepers strive to bring you the latest in our community. That is because they are part of the community. They also give back to the community.
Between calving cows and making hay on their farm, looking forward to fulfilling her role as grandmother to a second grandchild, and preparing for their other daughter’s wedding next year, Linda Steinke finds the time to attend and report on events and issues serving the region west of Millet.
Linda has a history of commitment to community. She will be remembered for her efforts while serving on the Warburg Library Board for over a decade. It was during this time they made a determined effort to equip the library with computers and expand the use to include computer lessons and other programs, and to re-develop the basement area for classrooms and functions.
During her diverse past, Linda has always made a commitment to her community. She organized an Edmonton soup kitchen detail with their church youth group. Before moving to Canada, she volunteered as a nurse at the Berrien County Youth fair, manned a first aid station for a marathon in a suburb of Chicago, and did a free walk-in clinic on Chicago's southside (scary part of town).
Linda continues to serve her community because as she says, “Caring about our community is what separates us from the competition”.
