The executive committee of the Bucks County chapter of Score recently presented co-founder Wendelin “Bim” Stahl with a trophy to commemorate his service.
Stahl, who now resides at Juniper Village at Bucks County in Bensalem, had heard about Score through the Small Business Administration. He and another Bucks County man founded the local chapter of the national nonprofit organization in 1988.
At the time of the chapter’s founding, Stahl owned an appliance store in Fairless Hills. Ironically, the co-founder could not join the chapter as he was not retired. Score had previously required that all volunteers be retired executives.
In 1989, after selling his store, Stahl officially joined Score.
During the recognition ceremony, Stahl reminisced about his early life serving in the Navy Air Corps in World War II while stationed in Miami, Fla. He flew on planes delivering supplies to Brazil.
Stahl was also a past president of the Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce. Lower Bucks Chamber sent two representatives to the ceremony and presented Stahl with a commemorative award.
