They were awarded medals and certificates.
Because they had made the renovation of the Bismarck column on the occasion of the 750th anniversary of the city of Bad Berleburg, four members of the Transport and Home Association, the Bismarck Memorial Medal was awarded. In the name of Prince Ferdinand von Bismarck presented 
the Hessian State Representative The Bismarck Federation, Norbert Becker and Felix Nawrotzki, in a small ceremony, the medal in bronze to the 1st Chairman 
Heiner Trapp and to the CEO Georg Bald. 
Honorary Chairman Günther Hirschhäuser and project manager Bernd Brömmeling 
received the Bismarck Memorial Medal in silver. Norbert Becker from Alsfeld and Felix Nawrotzki from Hatzfeld expressed their sincerest gratitude to the honorees 
and praised their commitment. Honorary Chairman
Hirschhäuser emphasized that the appreciation must also belong to all sponsors 
, without which the renovation would not have been possible. "I carry the 
medal for the financiers," he explained.

    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea.
