The Neillsville Chamber of Commerce NACC gave out many awards to several individuals and groups and also businesses. So many we are not going into all of them but want to do this one for the website, being we do post all of the ‘Good Old Days’ articles that Dee Zimmerman does up. (Dmk)

Next up was the Spotlight Award, which was presented to Dee Zimmerman, office manager of The Clark County Press. Zimmerman has dedicated her career to sharing the history of the Neillsville area with others.

In 2014 Zimmerman celebrated her 45th year at the Shopper and the Press. For almost 20 years, she has shared “The Good Old Days” feature with the community. She gleans the archives for news items of long ago, incorporating vintage area photos. She enjoys working with others to preserve local historical sites, artifacts and data.

‘How did 45 years go by so quickly,’ Zimmerman said. ‘If you enjoy what you are doing, time goes by fast. This has been a great adventure and a great experience. I have enjoyed working with the public and members of the Historical Commission.’
