Mr. Harold Gless, from the Class of 1945, is a great example of those who have stayed and made Caledonia such a wonderful and special place to raise a family. Mr. Gless’ 53 year career with the State Bank of Caledonia, first as a teller and culminating as President and Chairman of the Board, reflected the growth of the Caledonia community. Over the years, Harold extended a helping hand to countless Caledonia area residents.
Harold has served the community as a founding member of the Lion’s club, the Caledonia American Legion, and as member of Holy Family Church. Now retired, Mr. Gless stays active helping build homes for Habitat for Humanity.
Harold, along with his wife Phyllis and his son Jim, has served the community well. We appreciate his role in helping make Caledonia community a place we can all be proud to call home.
