This is the crew from Rural Manufacturing, a Freeman-born and Freeman-based business that today — Saturday, June 16 — is celebrating its 50th anniversary. In commemoration of the milestone, the public is invited to a complementary meal at the Freeman Community Center starting at 5 p.m. Among those pictured is general manager Bob Wollmann, left, who has been with the company from the start; and co-founders Joe Danny Hofer and Vernon P. Hofer, second- and third-from-left, who started the business on Vernon's farm 8 miles west and 1 1/2 miles north of Freeman, in 1968.
