Lidgerwood/Wyndmere Exchange Director served for 15 Years

Ione Eckre has been representing the members of District 9 for 15 years. Ione was appointed director of the newly formed Lidgerwood/Wyndmere exchange on December 16, 2005 after the board created  2 new districts to bring the patrons of Lidgerwood, Wyndmere, Hankinson, and Fairmount into the Cooperative.

Since that time, Ione has been a valuable member of the board, bringing in her years of experience in teaching (science/biology) and working with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) to the board room. “This is the best group of people I’ve had the privilege to work with. I’m going to miss being a part of the board”, stated Eckre.

Dave Gauslow, president of the Cooperative, has nothing but kind words for Ione. “Ione has been a great board member, always engaged and a great contributor. She has served the cooperative well, and we will miss her in the board room.”

“Since the first board meeting she attended, Ione has brought a feisty spirit to the board. We were never left wondering what Ione was thinking. Her enthusiasm will be missed in our meetings” said CEO Jeff Olson.

All of us at Red River Communications will miss Ione’s insight and spirit and we wish her well in retirement.
