On Tuesday, people visited the Wapakoneta Family YMCA, Auglaize-Mercer YMCA North, in Celina, and Auglaize-Mercer YMCA South, in Minster, and participated in tours of the facilities, including the weight room, cardio room, aerobic track and the pool area, along with a YMCA employee explaining each portion of the tour in depth.
The Auglaize County health commissioner’s contract was renewed for another two years during Tuesday’s meeting of the Auglaize County Health Board.

Health Board members approved the renewal after an executive session Tuesday morning.
The contract, for an approximate $85,425 annual salary, has no changes, Parsons said.
