    “If, When and Why Not?” — Joseph Boer of The Blue Heron

“If, When and Why Not?” — Joseph Boer of The Blue Heron

The highlight of a trip or an evening at the Lake of the Ozarks is enjoying a gastronomic event. Many visitors and fortunate locals repose at The Blue Heron with its majestic view from the veranda at twilight, and of course, with its restaurateur, Joseph Hendrikus Boer. Joseph invites his guests in and shares stories about food, wine and spirits. He also attends to guest details. Joseph has worked to not only perfect delicious entrées, but also to make memories for his customers that last a lifetime. His sharing of life’s advice recently earned him a Missouri House of Representatives Resolution. His insightful conversation with a state representative’s two college-age daughters highlighted always telling the truth, and to never lie, cheat or steal. He shares this same advice with his new employees.

A Lady of Learning: Mary Lou Edwards

“WE OFTEN PLAYED SCHOOL when I was a child and because I was oldest, I always was the teacher. We sometimes used my mother’s teaching books,” Mary Lou shares. What began as playing teacher set in motion more than a half century of educating Lake area youth. Mary Lou grew up in Grovespring, Missouri (about 20 miles south of Lebanon). She remembers learning how to spell embroidery floss, and how to weigh items and tabulate bills at her parents’ general store. Teachers knowingly suggested Mary Lou start school, and she entered first grade at age four. She enjoyed school and progressed so well that she graduated at 16. She began formally instructing students at the age of 17.
