Joking his way to retirement - Roland Fowler

TELLING JOKES - Roland Fowler stopped in the Echo office Thursday and announced he would be stepping down as the official weather data recorder for Embarrass after 35 years. Roland or Charlie as he’s also known, recorded an unofficial low temperature on February 2, 1996 of -64°F. Fowler, 85, served 40 years on the Embarrass Fair Board, and was out selling ads in Ely for the Fair Book. He will continued to serve on the Embarrass-Vermillion Federal Credit Union Board. If you run into him, he’ll probably tell you a good Ole and Lena joke. And then maybe a couple more, with a smile and a hearty laugh. That's Ely Echo general manager Nick Wognum enjoying the laughs.
