We are pleased to have initiated this "Donor Recognition" link to our website.  This page will serve to identify and thank those donors who have generously supported both the In the Line of Duty Foundation and Constable Cellars, in memory to those dedicated law enforcement officers who have committed their professional lives to protect and serve.

We would like to start this new link by going back a few years to recognize two our earliest donors.  We hope you will enjoy these reflections and testimonials.

Our first donor was Jeanne Ludjack from Waupun, Wisconsin, whose donation was made in memory of her father,  Robert "Bob" Pease.   Bob retired as a correctional officer at Central State Hospital, currently known as the Dodge Correctional Institution.   He loved politics and led his local union.  In addition, Bob served as president of ACSME Council 24 for all Wisconsin State employees, became mayor of Waupun, and was proud to become a member of the Columbia County Board of Supervisors.  He devoted his life to being a public servant and received many commendations and honors for his deep personal commitments and contributions while serving his constituents.  On a personal note, Bob liked nothing better than to pour a glass of wine or beer or mix a good "Old Fashioned" cocktail for his family and friends.

Our second donor and purchaser of Constable Cellars  wines for many years was Lorraine Zwart Campbell, who made her donations in memory of her two brothers, Don and Wayne Zwart, who served as law enforcement officers in the State of Wisconsin.

     Lorraine's younger brother, Wayne Zwart, served in the U.S. Air Force before joining the New Holstein (WI) Police Department, where he served in the rank of Sergeant, until his retirement in 1994.   Wayne also remained a reservist in the U.S. Army during his law enforcement career.  Wayne was a member of a number of law enforcement associations, including the Wisconsin Chapter of International Association of Arson Investigators.
