The Godfrey Village Board voted Tuesday night to proclaim today, August 8, Henry Saenz Day.   Saenz was the longtime owner/operator of Barleff's Menswear in Godfrey, and retired and closed the store back in February.  Barleff's was in operation for 65 years.   Saenz was also a member of the Godfrey Township Board from 1985 to 1993, and was very active in business and civic groups during his career.  

Congratulations to Henry from all of us at The Big Z!
