A bit about Mr. Kelnhofer: The outdoors is a good friend of mine.  Whether it’s camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, boating, taking in a baseball game or sporting event, I love being with nature and the views it has to offer. Outside of SMSA, I love to volunteer at places including, parish council, Boy Scouts and coach youth sports.  My favorite part about being a Ledger is that SMSA is a community filled with a family feeling. A family consists of giving and receiving along with learning all about faith, hope and love. This is the reason I feel blessed to be part of the SMSA family.
