Local man helps others with their Bucket Lists
The Christmas season is full of Holiday spirit, giving presents and spreading cheer.
But for one local man, that spirit is a year-long quest.
It was last July when Tom “Rudy” Ruether, owner of the Pearl Lake Lodge in Marty, was reading a story about a woman who had cancer and had started a Bucket List of things she wanted to do before she died.
Some of the things were simple – like spending a weekend at a cabin. Ruether realized that he could help this woman scratch off at least that item from her wish list.
So he called the reporter who wrote the story and offered his cabin for her use. The reporter called the woman Michalene Sullivan of Hillman, and told her of Ruether’s offer.
