Remembering Rudy
MONROE - It's been 20 years since Rudy Burkhalter passed away, but his imprint on Green County Cheese Days remains. Burkhalter was born in Switzerland in 1911 and immigrated to the United States. He lived in Madison but his ties to Monroe and Green County ran deep: He taught accordion lessons from his storefront on the Square and was a popular performer throughout the region.
