Our fourth and final 25 year member we would like to introduce to you is a very special man, Bob Deyo. Bob is the only person who has been on stage in every production LPI has done. Anyone who knows Bob knows that he is a wealth of knowledge and his life experiences are always worth listening to. Bob has also kept track of every single person who has been involved with LPI for the past 25 years!
The third 25 year member we would like to introduce to you is, Joe Horstmeier. Whether it has been on stage as a performer, behind the scenes on stage crew, on the directing staff, or being a volunteer, Joe has been humbled to be a part of LPI for the past 25 years. Read more about Joe and his wonderful memories from the past years with LPI below.
The second 25 year member we would like to introduce to you is Rita Horstmeier. Rita and her entire family has been involved with LPI in some capacity since the beginning. Her four children, Joe, Nic, Jake, and Alexia have been involved onstage and backstage, and Rita's husband Jeff has done his fair share of volunteer work building sets for LPI throughout the years. Rita is now the head of ticket sales for LPI and has been for the past 17 years!
In honor of our 25th Anniversary year, we are going to share with you, four people that have been members of LPI for the past 25 years. Keep an eye out over the next few months as we share their memories and stories of the past 25 years. Our first 25 year member we would like to introduce to you is, Ed Ritger. Ed is the only 25 year member that has never been onstage. Ed is the father of Andy Ritger, one of the founders of Lakeshore Productions. Ed has been a "behind the scenes" asset to LPI throughout the years. Read more about Ed below as he reflects back on the last 25 years of LPI.
