Friends of the Blaziers
Learn how to extend Bob and Rosemary Blazier’s legacy of stewardship through the Friends of the Blaziers Campaign.
Bob and Rosemary Blazier epitomize community leadership. During a half-century living and working in Crystal Lake (they moved here in the ’60s when the town had 8,000 residents), they’ve become stewards of local business, the arts, healthcare and education.
“The Blaziers have had a positive effect on the character, development and behavior of hundreds and thousands of Crystal Lake citizens,” said Mary Margaret Maule, president of the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce.
To honor the couple, the Crystal Lake Chamber Foundation renamed Crystal Lake Pump House (located in McCormick Park) to the Blazier Center for Community, Leadership and Commerce on September 11, 2015.
The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce, of which Bob Blazier is a past president, is asking that others take a page out of the Blazier book.
“The impact of this civic-minded couple has left an indelible mark. Help us give back to the couple who have left a legacy of generosity for generations to come.”
In honor of the Blaziers – and in connection with the chamber’s 75th anniversary – members of the community are encouraged to donate $75 to the Friends of the Blaziers campaign (made payable to the Crystal Lake Chamber Foundation). Funds will be used for scholarships, programing, and to support the work of the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce.
“The impact of this civic-minded couple has left an indelible mark,” Maule explained. “Help us give back to the couple who have left a legacy of generosity for generations to come.”
