Cal is President of the Board and also a Life Member of the German American Heritage Center, which is true of the entire Werner family; they have provided moral and financial support literally from the ground up. In nearly every aspect of the organization, Cal has contributed his encouragement, time, leadership skills, strong work ethic, and financial resources. "Occasionally he even shares his opinion, delivered in an unmistakable baritone for those who might miss it," stated Janet Brown-Lowe, Executive Director of the German American Heritage Center (seen on left). Cal is immensely proud of his German heritage and has inspired countless others to step up and acknowledge that pride as well. In addition, has has used his legal training to benefit GAHC, has lead capital campaigns, supervised membership drives, sought grant funding, and managed challenge support initiatives. "Many who receive a call or reach Cal by phone can quickly quote his signature self-introduction - 'Cal Werner of Greater Davenport.' Those who know the man and his impact understand that it is not just a moniker, it is his way of life as his contributions to our community extend beyond the walls of GAHC," stated Mrs. Brown-Lowe.
