In Memory of
Thanks for your interest in Christmas Epaulets. John Knutson was a pilot
for North Central, Republic, and Northwest Airlines who lost his battle
with stomach cancer in 1997 at the age of 56. About 7 years ago,
John's widow Mary got the idea to start making Christmas Epaulets.
The money started to come in and she decided that all proceeds should go
to the Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Scholarship Foundation in John's memory as he
was a 1959 graduate of Chetek High School.
Originally all epaulets were hand sewn by Mary at her kitchen table, but as popularity has grown, manufacturing has been taken over by a local Chetek company, Core Products International right here in the USA in Chetek Wisconsin and packaging is handled by the student council at CW schools.
All profits from the sale of these epaulets go directly to the general fund of the CWSF, and to date there has been over $25,000 donated through this program.
The Knutson family and the CWSF hope that you will bring yourself and many others many smiles and happy thoughts with the spirit of Christmas as you wear this reminder of the season and tribute to a fine person and pilot.
