A local garden club is hosting a tour of local gardens in Wapakoneta on Sunday.
The Roots and Shoots Garden Club will have a tour of five private gardens and one public garden in the area. This event will be held from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
â€śLocal home owners have graciously opened their beautiful gardens for public viewing to benefit the Roots and Shoots Garden Club,â€ť member of the Roots and Shoots Garden Club Michele Bishop said.
The newest trustee appointed to serve on the Wapakoneta Area Community Foundation is fulfilling her late mother-in-lawâ€™s last term.
Denise Wintzer is to serve for Mary Alice Wintzer, one of the boardâ€™s original members since 1989, through her termâ€™s expiration on Oct. 31, 2015.
While Denise Wintzer said no one can replace her mother-in-law, she was looking forward to the position and its ability to allow her to give back to her community.
Larry Tester, who serves as the foundationâ€™s executive director, said the younger Wintzer came highly recommended.
With renewal of a contract with an international realtor pending, Wapakoneta Area Economic Development Council (WAEDC) members discussed ways they would improve the deal.
WAEDC Executive Director Greg Myers said he believes renewing the contract, which came up for review this May as it creeps toward its one year anniversary, would be beneficial for Wapakoneta as city administrators continue to seek investment into the 471-acre Job Ready Site certified manufacturing site.
