On February 3 Hon. Luke Messer, who represents Indiana’s Sixth District in the US House of Representatives, rose before his colleagues to commend Draper on being named America’s Healthiest Workplace.

On April 11 Rep. Messer visited Draper and presented us with a copy of the February 4 edition of the Congressional Record, in which his remarks before the House are memorialized.  We are honored to have been mentioned in the Congressional Record, and are also honored by Rep. Messer’s presence at Draper.

About John Pidgeon

My name is John Pidgeon and I am Draper’s president.

I was born to this job. Draper was founded by my great grandfather Luther Draper. My grandfather Elmer Pidgeon and my father Luther Pidgeon have served as Draper’s president.

My career here dates from the summer of 1957 when I began mowing the company lawn. The pay was good – $3.00 for four hours work. My job description and compensation have improved moderately since then.

I will be writing from time to time on matters of general interest.
