A Wapakoneta Elementary School second grader doesnâ€™t hesitate a second when asked what her favorite part of school is â€” recess.
Typically 7-year-old Jaden Gerstner said she plays games of chase.
Lunch comes in a close second.
â€śMmmmm,â€ť Jaden says as she thinks about the school cafeteriaâ€™s pizza.
It doesnâ€™t matter what kind, because they are both good, she said.
Living just outside of Wapakoneta, the daughter of Dawn and Chris Gerstner has â€śgoats, cats, rabbits, kittens and a dog,â€ť she said, â€śand enough room to play.â€ť Jadenâ€™s favorite thing to do outside is race her dog, LJ, to the barn.
Draped around the necks of approximately 50 people walking in the 9th annual CROP Walk in Wapakoneta was the picture of a person and on the back was the story of their life.
â€śIt is the person who will benefit from my walking in the CROP Walk for the Church World Service,â€ť the Rev. Adrian Sunday said as he walks along the newly reconstructed East Auglaize Street.

A recent contract offer for natural gas to the city is acceptable, but Mayor Rodney Metz says he would like to see a better price as the city of Wapakoneta continues to negotiate 6-month deals instead of annual contracts for its natural gas aggregation program.
â€śWe have information regarding the rate, but it has changed a couple of times as we got closer to a deal for the next six months,â€ť Metz told the Wapakoneta Daily News Sunday.
