CAPTAIN CARL S. KIZER. (THIS PAGE SCHEDULED FOR UPDATE- much more information)
On June 19th we posted a remembrance of Capt. Carl Kizer. At the time we could not make sense of the connection to Allen County as his official home of record is listed as Scranton, PA.
We have seen a copy of his birth certificate at the Allen County Health Department and found out he was born in SugarCreek Township near Gomer, Ohio. Both of his parents have passed.
This is a link to the post we made on the 9th of June.
Right after posting the remembrance, one of our board members found some contact information for Capt. Kizer's brother. We have been messaging via email back and forth and we now have another excellent photo of our friend and brother Captain Carl S. Kizer.. We will be creating a facebook memorial page for him later this week. ( Page Created - https://www.facebook.com/CaptCarlSKizer )
Finding photos and information about those we want to honor is a painstaking task that takes a lot of time. If any of you want to help. Email us at our main address . We really need help with this.
Our Artwork ...We get a lot of compliments about the high quality of our art work and printed materials.
Must be expensive right? Well it's not, because ... all of our artwork for our web site and printed material is provided to us free of charge. While some of our art is created by other staff, all of the high quality art is created by our volunteer Art Director in Greenville, S.C. His expertise in graphic design has been used by such companies as Michelin Tire Co., B.F. Goodrich, B.S.N.F. Rail Way, Mack Truck and many others to promote their products.
Printing cost have been kept low by seeking the most cost effective solution to meet our needs. For example, we purchased 5 thousand 4 x 6 glossy cards with our Logo, Mission and information about our approach to memorial design. We took advantage of a promotion and got this done for only $15.73 or only .003 cents each.
Our board member Jim Whited, is the owner of Whited Printing Co. He provides us with invaluable expertise and volunteer labor in his print shop to print, bind, cut, fold, perforate and and other services. All of this allows us to have very high quality materials printed at a cost that does not reflect it's high quality. Since Jim is a member of the Board of Directors, we do not hire him for any printing services to avoid or appear to have any conflict of interest or impropriety.
