Joe Scheiring Memorial Bench

A new granite bench honoring Joe Scheiring was made possible by donors who contributed a total of $2,500 to Friends of Lake Panorama. The bench was installed August 5, 2015 at the Panorama West golf course. Scheiring passed away August 8, 2014. He was well known as the organizer of the Fourth of July fireworks that originate at Shady Beach. He also was well known for his love of golf, so friends thought a bench on the #7 hole at Panorama West would be a fitting tribute. An inscription on the bench reads – “In Memory of Joe Scheiring, who loved the money hole, because he usually won it.”

The bench installation was done by Des Moines Winterset Monument. It was placed on a granite pad with a sand base underneath, then secured to the pad with a special epoxy.
