The Holmen Lions would like to congratulate Jim Schmeling as the 2019 Holmen Kornfest Parade Marshal.

Jim originally hails from Beech, North Dakota, but moved to the La Crosse in 1977. The railroad brought Jim to the La Crosse area and kept him busy between supervising the CP line from Chicago to Seattle and moving him from La Crosse to Holmen to the Twin Cities and back to Holmen when he finally retired in 2005. Jim was also instrumental in the area Youth Basketball program for over 23 years and assisted with updating the grounds for various sports around Holmen.
