Well done for 50 years and then done
10 May 2021
Elk River Meats closed its doors for the last day of business on May 1, but the community would not let Bob and Denise Robeck go quietly into the sunset.
Elk River Mayor John Dietz presented Bob and Denise Robeck with the Mayor’s Award on Saturday, May 1, which marked the meat market’s 50th anniversary. He and staff gathered outside the business under the green and white awning to exchange kind words, take photos and have a chance to wish the couple well in their retirement.
Dietz said 50 years was far too significant to not do something special for the Robecks.
