Community State Bank (CSB) is pleased to introduce The Frank Lamping Community Service Award. The award, inspired by Union Grove native Frank Lamping, was created to acknowledge and celebrate a community member who exemplifies positivity, selflessness, leadership and inspires others to give back to the community. CSB is proud to announce that Frank Lamping will be the inaugural recipient for this annual award.
“Frank is a role model to so many people in Racine County,” said CSB President and CEO, Scott Huedepohl. “He’s not looking for anything in return, but instead just to inspire a young kid to do better, help out at a local event, or simply to bring a smile to someone’s face. He’s involved in the community in so many ways it’s remarkable. Frank is the epitome of a true and genuine community leader and that’s something to celebrate.”
As an award recipient, Lamping has also been gifted $1,000 to donate to a non-profit organization of his choice. Lamping will have the opportunity to announce his chosen organization at the upcoming award celebration on September 5th, 2019 at Community State Bank’s Union Grove office (1500 Main Street). The tailgate themed event will run from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM with a presentation beginning at 6:00 PM. Food and beverages will be available during the event hours. The general public is invited to attend.
“Anyone that knows Frank, understands that he’s a die-hard Green Bay fan,” said long-time friend and CSB Market President, David Moyer. “Having this event right before the first football game makes it that much more special...it’s who Frank is. I’m really honored to be a part of presenting this award to one of the best people I know. It’s well deserved.”
Lamping and his wife Andrea have both resided in Union Grove their entire life. Lamping was named the 2017 Inductee into the Green Bay Packer Fan Hall of Fame and is an avid part of the community. He volunteers his time to multiple community organizations which include: Union Grove Lions Club (30 Years), Leadership Union Grove, Relay for Life (17 Years), Union Grove/Yorkville Land Use Planning Committee, Union Grove Recreation Yorkville Liaison, Union Grove History Seekers, Blacksmith of Oak Clearing Museum, Milwaukee Genealogy Member, Burlington Genealogy Member, Henningfeld Family Reunion Chairman, Union Grove High School Class of 1974 Reunion Committee Member, Union Grove Men’s Volleyball League and Union Grove Recreation Youth Basketball League.
“It really blew me away that Community State Bank chose me. There are so many other deserving people in the community and I’m honored and humbled to be given this honor,” said Lamping. “I’m hoping this award will continue to inspire others to give back. Simply helping your neighbor can help make our communities a better place to live.”
