By Chuck Kajer

A benefit has been scheduled for Bob Wagner, a New Prague area native who was injured December 26, 2004, while vacationing in Mexico. The benefit will be held Friday, May 6, at the Park Ballroom in New Prague.

Wagner is the son of John Wagner of New Prague and the late Betty Wagner. He grew up on a farm north of St. Patrick and graduated from New Prague High School in 1973. He and his wife, Jenni, live in St. Paul.

Bob and Jenni were getting ready to head home after a vacation in Mexico when Bob decided to go into the water one last time.
