Another reason to live in St. Maries!


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, St. Maries is chock full of some terrific people.

One such resident is George Pfeifer.

Mr. Pfeifer will serve as grand marshal of the Labor Day Parade, Monday. The honor is bestowed upon a local citizen each year as recognition for their service to the community.

Over the years Mr. Pfeifer has been involved in the community. He served on the St. Maries City Council for four years, taught hunter safety classes for 15 years, he served as treasurer for St. Joe Valley Timber Association, was an officer in the St. Joe Valley Fish and Game Association, a member of Benewah County Waterways Committee, a board member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, charter member of St. Joe River Boat Club and a long-time member of the Elks and Eagles.

In 2009 he was honored as the St. Maries Citizen of the Year by the St. Maries Chamber of Commerce. A modest man Mr. Pfeifer said he was surprised to be named citizen of the year and again being asked to serve as Grand Marshal.

Since Mr. Pfeifer retired in 1997 and has moved to gardening full-time. He is part of the driving force behind the community garden that donates fresh food to local families, the food bank and the senior meal site.

Mr. Pfeifer and his wife have three grown children, four grandchildren and one great-grandson.

And George Pfeifer is just one in a long list of residents who make St. Maries a great community and a great place to live.
