Comedy will be in the air this weekend and the next as the Wapakoneta Theatre Guild performs their production of “Suitehearts.”
In this PG-13 play, two married couples — a newlywed couple and an older couple that has been married for years — have been booked into the same suite in New York hotel, and neither will give up their suite.
“It’s pure comedy,” Wapakoneta Theatre Guild Director Scott Bowman said. “It’s nothing but laughing.”
The amount of money annually transferred from the Income Tax Permanent Improvement Fund to a maintenance fund within Wapakoneta City Schools is being increased.
Wapakoneta City Schools Treasurer Susan Rinehart said the increase, which was approved during a regular meeting of the Wapakoneta City Schools Board of Education, would be from $158,424 to $208,000.
She said the recommendation to make the change was hers and is one of the ways she is trying to get things in place prior to her planned retirement in August 2013.
In an effort to support the men serving their community, the Buckland Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary is hosting a quarter auction Saturday to benefit the department.
“The Buckland Volunteer Fire Department is a private entity and relies on fundraisers to raise money to insure the department can operate with the best equipment possible,” Buckland Volunteer Fire Auxiliary Vice President Rachel Winkler said.
The auction is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the fire department in downtown Buckland. Doors open at 5 p.m.
