(MEDORA, ND) – The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation (TR Medora Foundation), in cooperation with the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation (TRPLF), announced today that Randy Hatzenbuhler will serve as the Executive Director for Development for the TR Presidential Library, while continuing his role leading the TR Medora Foundation as its President. He will join newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, Edward O’Keefe, for the next phase of this historic project.
Hatzenbuhler, a Mandan native, has worked for the TR Medora Foundation for over 30 years and has been part of raising over $60 million in gifts that have further developed Medora, the gateway community to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. He began his time there working alongside the TR Medora Foundation’s first president, Rod Tjaden, and the organization’s founder, Harold Schafer; Hatzenbuhler has served as its President since 1997. During his time in Medora, he has been instrumental in leading growth in tourism, fundraising, and physical development in and around Medora.
A Medora Business Membership is a uniquely North Dakotan way to say thank you to the people that matter most to your business: your employees and your customers.
With Membership, you get season passes to theMedora Musicaland rounds of golf at Bully Pulpit Golf Course to give to whomever you choose. Many companies get over a $10,000 return on their Membership… companies like Scheels.
We sat down with Melissa Neutman, Marketing and Events Director for Scheels in Bismarck to get her thoughts on the benefits of Membership, what it feels like to make the state’s #1 Tourist Destination better and what it’s like working for Scheels, a company who cares about the community and its employees alike!

Behind-the-scenes interviews with Medora employees | By Jewel Eliese
You’re driving in your car listening to the radio, humming away to some great music. Then the song stops and you hear a silky sounding male voice, full of depth and emotion.
And you wonder, what is the story behind this radio man’s voice?
We were able to sit down and speak with a Medora employee whose dream is to one day be that man behind the radio. There may be a day when you’ll hear the voice of James Mozey on your drive to work and think how wonderful it is that you know his fascinating story.

second Medora experience

The rugged North Dakota badlands complement the laid-back charm of tiny Medora for a getaway that promises awe-inspiring views, comfortable accommodations, cowboy eats and even a musical revue.
