Our Hometown Hero this week is: Randy Mumpower.

Randy was nominated by Shannon:

Randy is a member of American Legion Post 172 and also the ALR ( American Legion Riders) of Post 172 for Wamego. He ALWAYS shows up by doing: Memorial honors at funerals with flags and the 21 gun salute and giving the family’s the spent shells and folding and presenting flags to the next of kin. He is there to put up flags on the bridge and cemeteries on Military Day, he escorts Gold Star families, he does raffles to support Post 172 and the the Honor flights for Veterans. He also was instrumental in getting funding and donations for the Wamego Veterans Memorial in City Park. Post 172 used to do the Easter Egg hunt (before COVID) and if Randy saw a child without an egg he would make sure that child got one.
Randy Mumpower is one of a kind.

Randy receives tickets to K-State football, plus a free oil change from Kia of Manhattan, a $50 gift card to RC McGraws, and a Hometown Heroes T-Shirt! John is also qualified to win the grand prize from Robert’s Heating and Cooling: a full Furnace and AC replacement!

We will announce the winner of the Furnace/AC replacement on Veteran’s Day!
