The Auglaize County 4-H Club recognized several members for their contributions to the organization throughout the years at the 52nd Annual 4-H Adviser and Junior Leadership Recognition Banquet Monday night at the Junior Fair Building.
The club awarded plaques to three outstanding 4-H youth, one friend of 4-H and one outstanding adviser at the banquet.
Just when we thought the effects of winter were over, there comes the threat of volcanic activity beneath the Auglaize River.
According to local officials, recent measurements show the water temperature of the river is at 94 degrees, far warmer than the usual 33 degrees it is this time of year.
Along with the heat, a foul smell has been reported.
“It smells like rotten eggs,” said Josh Hines, executive director of the Wapakoneta Area Chamber of Commerce.
There’s a new face at the Wapakoneta Area Economic Development Council.
Jessica Braun, a Wapakoneta native, took over as assistant director March 17.
Braun attended The Ohio State University after high school and spent one and a half years after graduation woking on an AmeriCorps project.
AmeriCorps is an organization whose members conduct intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
The Wapakoneta Redskins created runs with the help of five doubles out of their eight hits in Monday’s game.
Although the offense produced fewer hits as the game wore on, they were solid enough in other areas to hold off the St. John’s Blue Jays in the season opener for both teams.
The Redskins emerged with a 6-3 non-league victory Monday over St. John’s in varsity baseball action at Wapakoneta High School.
