In a touching ceremony, Mayor Roessler was made an honorary Glennville Faith Rider in a certificate that read:

This certificate is awarded to Chris Roessler whereas Mayor of Glennville,

  • Mayor Roessler worked above and beyond his duty;
  • Mayor Roessler instituted a fundraiser at Rotary Corporation to purchase wreaths for the Glennville Faith Riders;
  • If it weren’t for his efforts, we would not have reached our goal during the 2013, 2014, and 2015 Christmas seasons to provide wreaths at Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery;
  • His efforts have not gone unnoticed;
  • Without your assistance, we would not be able to assist the citizens of Tattnall County. We take great pride in the work and we present this award as a Glennville Faith Rider. 

Mayor Roessler expressed his deepest appreciation for the award saying, “These fine gentleman and ladies do a fine job for the veterans at the cemetery…I will do all I can to support this group and what they do.”

Their work is especially important to Mayor Roessler as his mother is buried at Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
