Tree dedicated to local animals

December 12, 2013

The Auglaize County Humane Society’s annual Christmas tree, previously located at Harrison Insurance, has been moved to Gild the Lily on Auglaize Street in Wapakoneta.
The tree is filled with “letters of love” — Christmas cards with donations dedicated to pets who have been “loved and lost” and have remained in their owners’ hearts.
Gild the Lily owner Glenna McCormick, also founder of the county’s humane society, said the animal Christmas tree is a big fundraiser, gaining more than $2,000 worth of donations every year.

Fair board wraps up 2013

December 12, 2013

The Auglaize County Fair Board met Monday night to wrap up meetings for 2013 and hear several different committee reports. Members heard reports on updated electrical service throughout the campgrounds.
“The in-ground service has been put in and now we are finishing up the boxes and so forth,” Fair Secretary Fred Piehl said. “We are getting a jump on it now rather than waiting for spring.”

Around this time last year, not coincidentally around the same time as the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings in Newtown, Conn., parents voiced their concerns about the safety of their children while in the care of the Wapakoneta City Schools district.
A public meeting was held last year to address these concerns, and local law enforcement has been working with the schools in order to continue updating safety measures.
