The city of Wapakoneta is trying to decide what it wants to do with a brick structure that was constructed in the parking lot of Image Master’s Print and Copy Center on 126 E. Auglaize St. during the East Auglaize Street Project, which was completed in 2013.
The structure covers up the base of an old sign post that was taken down years ago after a company went out of business.
Auglaize Acres hosted its annual volunteer banquet last week in honor of the individuals who dedicate their time and effort to improving each resident’s quality of life.
“Volunteers Put Spring in Our Step” was the theme for the luncheon planned in time for National Volunteer Week.
Approximately 70 people volunteer at Auglaize Acres, whether that means coming in once a year for a large activity or visiting on a weekly basis, Activity Director Kristina Martin said.
