Community Service: 1/1/1 Pledge
As stewards for the growth and development of our local community, 1% of our time is pledged to volunteering at a variety of local organizations. From assisting with fundraising efforts, to spending time on site at local organizations, the commitment to making our home a better place to live is held in high regard.
From sponsorships, scholarships and endowments, to groceries for the food pantry, Johnny pledges a portion his commissions to local charity. A belief firmly rooted in helping those less fortunate.
From consulting and seasoned business advice to serving organizations across several counties in Indiana, we are committed to giving back to those that need help.
Several years ago I reached out to many business owners seeking donations to help our wounded troops that were injured or sick while deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and sent to the Landstuhl Military Hospital in Germany. Many businesses responded, and several others stepped forward without even being asked. Johnny Klemme was among those that helped without reservation. The fact that he donated was a testament to himself and his company, but the fact that he did so without prompting was as noteworthy as a Patriot. My sincere thanks go out to him and those that helped in this cause.

Johnny provides initiative, leadership and recruiting skills, bringing people and companies together to assist with the largest depressional wetlands still in existence in Tippecanoe area, NICHES Mulvey Pond. This diverse restoration provides buffer and cover for the many wetland, grassland and woodland bird species in migration and during the breeding season.
Johnny has opened doors to help promote NICHES new office at Clegg Memorial Garden and worked to raise money to insure that Clegg remains a local natural landmark permanently for Tippecanoe County. He serves on NICHES Land Trust’s Advisory Committee, he is passionate, bright and has been great to work with on the many projects he has assisted us with.

Johnny Klemme is very dependable and always there for us when we need him. He can always give me an answer or help me find a solution, no matter what the problem is. His vast knowledge and variety of personal contacts amazes me and has been a great asset for our annual 4th of July Festival. I became Event Coordinator for the Town of Fowler in 2008 and Johnny has been donating raffle items to the Fowler 4th of July Festival ever since. In addition to donations, he participates in the festivities with his family and the community.
