Wins National Rexall Recognition

Lea Mae Weddig, member of the sales staff of Colby’s Rexall Drug Store is the proud recipient of the Rexall Citation of Merit awarded by the Rexall Drug Company of Los Angeles. Mr. Henry Weddig, store proprietor, said the award was made in recognition of Lea Weddig’s "sincere enthusiasm and desire to serve" and "in acknowledgement of unusual initiative."

Of all the salespeople (of Rexall stores) who sell Rexall Drug Products, and who work in the ten thousand locally-owned Rexall Drug stores, only a limited number are selected each year to receive this Rexall Citation of Merit.

The Citation bears the signatures of Justin W. Dart, President of Rexall; Gordon A. Triplett, President of International Associaton of Rexall Clubs; C. E. Cooper, Rexall Vice President for Marketing; and A. C. Till Bond, Secretary-Treasurer of the International Association of Rexall Clubs.

Miss Weddig was born in Chicago, Ill., and as a baby moved to Owen, Wis., where she finished her grade and high school education. She has been working with her father in Rexall drug stores for eight years.
